ebay deals or scam?
 
while searching ebay for the first time i came across a new seller who had 173 listings for new bikes. all prices start at GBP 1.00 and no reserve and free worldwide shipping. here 's the link to her listings. it appears nobody has yet bid on any of them and the auctions end in 3 days. never used ebay before, so want to check with any experienced users to see if this is a scam, since it seems suspicious to me.

I would avoid the seller. The low starting bid with no reserve and zero feedback are big warning signs in my view. Also, a new ebay seller with 173 items for sale is a bit suspicious. It appears that ebay has begun to remove the sellers listings. Thats definately a warning sign :)

She must be an avid reader of BikeForums.com and knew she was caught. :D When I clicked on the linked and then the username, the user is no longer a registered user.

Go with your gut instincts and stay away from this seller. Support your LBS

If someone has no/negative feedback, I always check when they registered for their account.
