If it seems to good to be true....

the market for MB is kind of heavily loaded toward demand over supply

 

a very well educated consumer that is always competing with contemporaries over most MB auctions

 

you aren't getting a superbargain on MB if it's a public matter...

Every few weeks someone asks about a site giving away MB for 5% of the known market price.

 

And the market price is well know by all of us in the MB world...

 

Welcome aboard!!

 

Always get a chuckle from this...

The seller has only a few ratings and under 90% and all the folk that said they bought real MBs from him had only a single transaction.

 

Come on folk.  Buy the seller not just the product.

Note that the actual pen in picture 2 is nothing like the Montblanc image in picture 1.

 

You would not receive an authentic Montblanc 149 that's for sure. I would seriously doubt that you would receive any authentic Montblanc pen at all.

I thought the same thing but wondered if it was the perspective of the shot.

 

Of course, this is discounting a myriad of absurdities that already abound with this post.
