They all appear to have the same serial number in the description, including the one that just ended. Something fishy there. :shock:

They're part of a bigger scam that tells they bidder that the horn is ONLY available Buy It Now (any bids will be cancelled), for a larger but still ridiculously cheap sum payable only to a third-party eMail address... eBay gets flooded with these every weekend by hackers who have cracked a legitimate vendor's password and are looking to make a quick and easy buck. Always the same horns, always short time auctions. :shock: :evil:

I always report these when I see them. On the drop-down menus, choose "Listing Practices", "Avoiding eBay Fees", "Contact Info in Listing". The fact that the contact info is on a second page doesn't matter.

My guess is that eBay still doesn't require sellers to use strong passwords. So, hacking them might be pretty easy. Just a guess.

Of course, I do remember eBay asking EVERY account holder to choose a new password a few years ago because someone had hacked them ALL! What a miserable company.

I'm not bidding on any of them.

I'm selling all of them. :evil:

:tuba:



I'm joking. I have nothing to do with any of them. Please don't call the police...
