I suspect an Ebay scam unfolding....

Check this out

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=220708620691

Nice NAS 110 for sale right? I knew I ahd seen this add before right down to the same pictures and WAAA LAAA a little searching and there it is.

http://www.expeditionportal.com/foru...light=110+sale

I tried to bid and the funny thing was, a page opened up asking for Credit Card Information because I had exceeded my "number of items purchased on ebay..." Of course I did not enter any info and reported the thing to ebay but now I am super curious if this is a scam.

Ok I just contacted the fromer owner and he is aware of the sale so I guess it is legit. Still wanna know why ebay was asking for credit card info.

That's a legit option that eBay offers to sellers on high value auctions if your e-mail address is a generic Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail, etc. It's kind of a gatekeeper to keep people from registering on e-bay with a fake/new e-mail address just to bid on something to find out the reserve or jack up the maximum bids.

The seller doesn't get to see anything you put in, it's all internal to eBay to verify identity.

It's a sickness I know, I need one to drive while I tear down the others. I have rented a 40X40 aircraft hanger due to the pelthora of vehicles.

Yep sickness...
