Somethings fishy about that auction,
the seller is using the EXACT pics as this one that ended last week
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2443426283&category=33742&rd=1



And this person only has a rating of 1,
it might be a hi-jacked account.
It's so easy to trick ebay newbies into giving you their password.

big scam where theives steal an accout (with positive rating) and use it to sell high dollar items.

I've gotten over a dozen emails that look like an ebay email (EVEN has @ebay.com, in the address)
asking to "confirm" my password, in order to maintain my account or it would be revoked or banned, or some other BS......


just be careful out there

regards
Ken

"No, it's not a scam. My father purchased the turbo kit from the
original seller, and we have had it for a little over a week now. He
purchased it for my IS300 thinking that it wouldn't be too much of a
problem to bolt up to.....in essence, it is going to take too much
modification to work, so we are selling it under my ebay name to
recover some of the money.

Thanks"

You think that ebay would have some way of reporting scams? 25 bids already... I feel sorry for the poor soul who wins the auction.... don't u just want to kick these scammers in the ding ding?

Badsport: Check out the locations of the winner of the last auction and the seller rite now! Who's dad buys him a turbo kit for his IS300? Bs.

Hmmm, anybody in florida able to go and check it out in person?

Tix from KCI to Ft. Lauderdale are about $140 right now and Budget has a special on renting an economy car for $14 a day. And I *know* there's a motel-6, super 8 or something like that in the area for $40 or so a night. For that amount, I'd take a weekend vacation to florida to pay for it/pick it up in person. It'd only be $100 more than shipping would be and a little beach time in december would be nice! And if it turns out to be a scam, then no money changes hands and you get a little getaway out of the deal.
