It is! I have seen that in past many times, same description, same direct link, but different items, they appear from time to time.

Yep, anytime an auction says "Don't bid! Message me separately!" it's a scam.

It keeps popping up under different seller's accounts (all 100% positive feedback) each time which is the disturbing thing. Did they get hacked or what? Keep reporting this if you see it.

I assume it's a password hack, and it's usually on the same items on a weekend. Maybe less eBay eyes than during the week...

Looks like they keep hacking accounts, whenever I see one I usually bid the price of a house, hopefully someone else would do the same and make unsuspecting bidders question the validity of this listing. I report it to eBay also but it takes a while for them to remove it.

I always wonder if it isn't the hackers themselves that remove them and it's something else (like bids) that they are trying to get other than people dumb enough to pay the described "buy it now". I, too always report some anyway but there are a ton of them each weekend...
