Arrow Check this out - Really fishy ebay auction

I was browsing ebay for clie accessories and I came across this auction. I was really suprised to find this Clie for so low price.... It makes you have second thoughts doesn't it?

What do you guys think? Too good to be true?

well at least for me, i prefer not to buy higher priced items from sellers with no history and sellers with bad history. but to each their own. i admit that i started out on ebay by selling (not buying), so my first sell had no history either. but i was not selling a top of the line product that is not commerically available in the u.s., let alone worry about the warranty and return policy.
my personal opinion, though, is that someone who has to use pin up girls in their add is a bit cheesy. the auction might not be fishy per se, but it is cheesy.

hmm...

I saw this picture on a different auction, which was then featured on the scam list. I wouldn't risk it.

In May I bought UX50 on ebay brand new for $400.00 from US seller with 250 positive feedbacks.Guss what happened ?? He cashed out my M/O and I got : no money no UX50(after 4 months I got $175.00 insurance from eBay).I July I bought onother UX50 from seller in Canada I use Pay Pal and Visa and I got :no money from Pay Pal ,no PDA.I had to wait 1.5 month for visa to get my money back.Pay Pal said SORRY NO MONEY for you.

You never know who are you dealing with.

too good to be true, this thing is selling for 1000 US so no way and look at the seller's rating, only 1.

It's a scam! The pics are photoshop jobs. Checkout the actual photos from Japan Clie User Club:



and



On the buyer's 1st pic, check how the size of the VZ90 compared to the mouse. LOL

In the second image, the VZ90 was slighly rotated clockwise.
