Dodgy ebay shop? Too good to be true?

Hey all. What do you think might be wrong with this:

Alu-Mountainbike-Hardtail-MTB-Shimano

Check out his shop as well. It seems they're using the same frame and attaching some very expensive parts on it. Do you think it might be worth the shot?

I am not spamming here! Trying to get some opinions on whether this is legit. I mean, could it have a very very very ****ty frame? Is the rockshox dart fork a problem? Plz help here.
