I assume these are all scams of some sort, only accepting western union to china to sellers with zero feedback, but dayumm, I'd like a Speedpro for seventeen Euros plus shipping...if only it were true. Anybody real bidding on these things?

Interesting, I'm sort in agreement it is a scam, if they accepted Paypal I would be a little less worried, but worrid just the same.

I am also looking at all those ..... It must be a scam .... there are 3 different ebay names, which all go back to the same date and such...
Nobody gets Dahons for free, and I am sure they dont walk out of the plant either.
So buyer please beware .. Its a scam

Yeah, I'm sure you're right -- I was just curious if anyone knew anything about this, since apparently real ebayers are bidding, unless this is just another part of the scam.

What is interesting is to go and read the bogus reviews for the seller.
