"This is no drill" on ebay. Some mention of Pac War... deranged mind? Accidental post?

Could somebody please cough up the $2,000+ and let me know when they get it?

Looking at his feedback profile it appears the person is serious, but uses a highly unorthodox listing style. 100% rating with 2971 feedback on wargame related items is respectable.

That is respectable, and I noticed that too. Seems pretty high for such a weird listing though. 100% on thousands of items?

Anyhoo, just thought it looked bizarre.

Original listing removed, but the link (http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?type=4&cam...?) to a "similar" item is just as bizarre with the following quote accompanying:


ebay has restricted my sell ability

I've recoursed to a work around

resurrect unsold ads and revise them

any title you want

two hundred USD

I looked at several of this seller's ebay listings. The ones I looked at were all bizarre. No pictures of the item, no descriptions, just seemingly random words and phrases.

Obviously has many happy customers, but how would anyone know what they were getting from these kinds of listings? How did he manage to do any business at all? It is a mystery to me...

Inquiring minds want to know.

100%. really? Now it's officially a "hmmm, what?"

Drugs and/or some sort of other scam. Every once and a while I have trouble selling a single item (ussualy high ticket) to a scammer. 100% being so unlikely ...
