two identicle auctions, both with the same image taken from another auction.

Seems plausible.... only just though. Seller has a reasonably good rep but his acct just may have been hacked :p

what do you think? I mean, safest option is to ignore it :D but I dont really want to :devil

Haha I had someone do that to me once (ie they used one of my photos for their auction), it was quite amusing really :)

If you look at the first two, they are the same person - two different auctions selling the same product by the looks.

Its would be easy enough to grab the picture off of an auction.

It's dodgy because they took a photo from another auction?

Are you sure that both of those sellers didn't just get the picture off Google Images or something?

Not sure, it just seemed a bit suspicous to me, 2x auctions with a pretty decent price ($650 on a unit with a RRP of 999) with the same picture. Maybe I jumped the gun a bit
