You do not get it? When eBay gets only from this auction no less than 1280$, where the question mark? Au contraire, ebay does everything she can to lure such suckers and scammers ...

I wonder what color the sky is on this planet?

It's all relative. I also find it offensive CEO's gets tens of millions of dollar "Golden Parachutes" when they are fired after doing a crappy job. There's a lot in the world that's offensive to just about anybody. I do my thing and play my part. Mostly I just try not to get "Played". I find it hilarious myself. These deals are kinda like the Jerry Springer of eBay...... "Jerry!!! Jerry!!!"

Hmmmm That listing looks very familiar indeed! I am sure that the same item (photographs) were used last month from the same seller in Spain...The deck 'only' made around $7500 or so last time.... I could be wrong...

Anyway far beyond my means and comfort zone

Who knows, maybe the unit pictured does not even exist. Does not look all that great when you consider all the work that is still to be done to them.

I call BS. The guy is selling to himself. He should get together with "Qualitytosell" another lunatic ebay seller and have his best technician look it over.

If he sells to himself doesn't he has to pay the commission?

I find the bidding very suspect and unusual.
The bidding goes from 5k, to 10k, to 15k?

This one was listed already multiple times, scammer for sure...
I mean, who would not take $4,995.00 with the first time it showed up on ebay...
The 2nd time it was $9.100,00, the 3rd time it brought $7.877,78, and now $15.988,00
It travelled from the US to Spain somewhere between these auctions...

Sure, we believe you...

Exactly who would be stupid enough to shell out that kind of $$$? IMO that seller should be reported as the BS he is.

It is possible to end an auction and show an inflated selling price. I do not know how it is done, but I believe a seller can end an auction with only listing fees. This deck has been around for a couple of years. I believe at one time it was in California.

Nothing makes sense about that listing, If he sells it to himself he has to pay about 5% ebay final value fee and another 5% paypal transaction fee, that's about $1500, I don't think he is selling it to another account which he owns or a friend, That would be just stupid wasting that much money. Is it possible some old rich folks that are buying this stuff, possible !! The only thing I think of is an ebay staff member who is hacking the system without the company knowing, I don't know.

This is nothing though, I've seen auctions gone for over $100k for stupid stuff that has no collectible value.

No, if the seller ends the auction it would not show SOLD. The seller and the buyer can agree to end the transaction and all paypal and ebay fees will be reversed but the status of the listing will not stay in SOLD status, It will show like THE ITEM NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

It shows sold. The "buyer" never pays. "seller"'opens a case on it. No response. Buyer banned. "seller " pays nothing. Case closed. Ebay has too many scammmers and game players to bother with non paying buyers.

This one is beyond ridiculous. I happen to be Tom who got scammed a number of years ago on one of these decks. I had clues but was nave enough to buy but it wasn't blatant ignorance then. This deck when I first paid attention to 2 gold buttons missing made me go back to the deck in California and I found the auction with a TDK HX tape in the cassette well just like what showed up in Spain. It was sold in Spain and then it shows up again sold in Spain with the same HX tape. Then to top it off it appears again and I view it to be amused and see it finishes at $15,998 and I have to laugh because no one could be stupid enough to see it reappear and then jack the price up to total moronic levels for a mediocre cosmetic deck[with less than 300 hours Ha Ha]. I happen to have had the other Limited for sale for a period of time. A gentleman who lives in Russia called me, flew to my home to look at it and purchased it for his father. That might be what it takes to really own one. In my listing I had a picture of a current newspaper with a current date. People knew I couldn't fake that. If some one bid that amount and paid it serves them right as you could never buy it and triple the price on the forth sale.
