Ebay ripoff on canon camers


I just wanted to get the word out to those of you that might have been tempted to purchase those unbelieveable deals on the 1Ds and 10D on ebay. If you look at their feedback everything looks legit. But if you look closer at the items that they have sold (sometimes if any) you can start to see large differences in how they sell. I've contacted the so called sellers of these cameras and I usually get the lie that, "I have a friend that works at Canon" or "I bought them in bulk and can sell them cheaply". They most always have overseas emails or web-based free ones. Last night (the 18th) I was fortunate to find one user they had cracked into that had a real website (he sells antlers) and I was able to contact him privately...(not through ebay)...here is his reply to my email about his ebay listings........

DO NOT bid on this item!!!! This is a major scam and I only sell antlers. All of
the items that are under my name that aren't antlers are auctions that I didn't
even know about and I intend to get to the bottom of this. Thanks for bringing
this to my attention. This is the first time I've ever been blindly involved in
stuff like this so don't even bid on it.

To be safe, please buy from reputable dealers or best yet help Phil out and buy through this website.....
