Icon4 Scammer Alert... This guy is up to no good... Rolex 5513 vintage Sub

http://ebay.to/2D5nsVJ

This is the second listing he has with this "See Full Item Description" box.

Click on the box in his listing to see the surprise.

We just reported another listing like this.

If you click on additional details a screen appears that states no bids accepted on the watch, buy now only, with prices stated.

I think thats some sort of bug/error
The watch has bids on it.
Seller has high feedback, albeit as a buyer and has a lot of items for sale

I think the seller’s intention is selling these items as Replica items not authentic items. Which is very confusing from eBay’s Point of view therefore eBay won’t do anything about it

This is an account which has been hacked.( the account has been dormant for over 1 year )
All his items are high end items, and up for silly prices.

You will be asked to pay outside of E-bay so no protection.

Every item is for cash sale $1050.

This is a well known scam, he will take as much cash as he can and disappear.

Yes. And the other 2 items we got kicked off. Different seller id, but same items and same Description button.

They seem to be hacked accounts.

I can't understand what they are hoping to accomplish. I was reading that it could be a phishing attempt. google vi.vipr.ebaydesc.com and you will see many posts about phishing and hacking.
