Just in case some of you have never seen one before, here's a live one so you know what to look for:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 89396&rd=1

Usually it's a rather expensive and powerful laptop going for a low (but not insanely low) price.

Notice the seller will only accept payment through a proprietary payment system. If you do a lookup on the domain, you'll find it goes back to some country we should probably kick off the internet.

I love his poor grammar. He acts as if it were a scam also. Nobody in their sane/legit mind would speak that way

Yeah, I had to be the good soul and report it to eBay. Nice to see that they responded pretty quickly.

The funny thing was that I used almost the exact same wording I used in my post and I told eBay that his payment system routed back to some country we should kick off the internet.
