Strangely Cheap No-Name Listings on Ebay -- Possible Scam?
I saw today several listings by the same seller for bikes without any information on the manufacturer. The seller has practically no transaction history and neither do most of his buyers. The bikes are selling (apparently) for very little money -- less than the seller's cost, I'm sure. With prices like these, I wonder if it is a SCAM? Although it's a violation of ebay rules, some sellers setup multiple accounts or get friends to bid on items to keep from having to sell an item too cheaply to a real buyer. Of course, I can't tell that this seller has done this. I must stress that I'm not accusing the seller of a scam. I simply am skeptical, because these prices seem too good to be true, which useually means a scam.
Can anyone shed light on any of this?
