On scams like this, I have seen people bid $5,000,000 and then someone else (planned) bid "a few million more" so it "shows up" as a high bid. This certainly gets ebays attention. Since we all KNOW this piece does not exsist, I don't think ebay will hold you to anything and they may just charge the seller the huge fee (percentage) for the sale!

Interesting saga. I hope Scotland yard finds this person and shackles them up for a few years of stale chips.

PS, I don't know the legal ramifications of bidding millions of dollars on something. Certainly, ebay can't hold you to an item that does not exsist. The fake serial number is the key.


The guys over at alt.guitar have been doing that for years on bogus 'vintage' guitars.

I won a manley slam on ebay last week which turned out to be a scam. I reported it to ebay, but they didnt seem interested in the fact that it was a criminal offence. It was in the UK. so be warned they may advertise it again

Sorry to hear that Rich.

What were the particulars (seller name, feedback, paypal, etc.)?

Do pursue this with vigour, and let us know how this turns out.

Everyone else, be very careful.
