    It's been a while since I've posted anything here and if this is a re-post I apologize, but I was looking through ebay this AM and noticed Seymour Solar Filters listing several TV Specials, 3 of which were for the same guitar and all 4 are being sold for $1050. Clearly this is has to be a scam.

    Here are the item #s:

    The below 3 are the same guitar

    seem to be removed already. What happenes quite frequently is that several different sellers offer the same guitar, even though they don't have it, but they will broker it in case of a purchase. Only saw it from japanese sellers though.

    I suspect they hijack bonafide accounts.
    I have a flag / watch on a certain guitar type / age and they keep coming up, same stupid T&C, same stupid attempts to send hooks out into anyone watching (Malwarebytes intercepts and blocks them) and I report the listing on about half a dozen counts - mostly in the listing activities category. Ebay does very little to block them, and only sometimes removes the listings. Meh...
