I've just placed a bid on a won on a listing on eBay. I only saw the listing 7 minutes from its end time, so my research had to take place after bidding.
It didn't take long to find other listings involving
- a "Mont Blanc Boheme Fountain Pen, rare discontinued model with no stone",
- all of which have a short description which states: "pen has been gifted to me in 2004",
- and all of which come from sellers which have 100% feedback in the range of 30-40 stars.
- All of these sellers have no other items and nothing else shows on their "completed listings", which indicates they have been inactive for a long time. I am assuming these are all hacked accounts with their original owners not even realising someone's using their accounts for this scam.
Please beware and report as appropriate.
That said, bummer I won't gt any MontBlancs for me this week. e_e
