That's a weird one, if you look at their other items they have 6417 for sale, iv'e clicked on a few different listings and they all have the exact same description noting £2250.... :?:

Either this guy has been hacked by a scammer or he's made a serious mistake when bulk listing a ton of listings and uploaded them all with the same description or something, i'm not sure if that's possible though.

Either way I still find it strange that someone with such low feedback would have thousands of high value items listed up at once.

I have heard of lots of people that advertise other companies items, so non of these items will be his, but when they sell them they take a percentage, but with this item it just stinks of someone getting fucked.

Ah right I didn't think of that selling for other companies.

But yeah it def does seem out of place with the descriptions.

Listings gone now so maybe eBay caught wind of it.

It's back, is this the same account?...

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/STAR-WARS-12 ... Swc15bRHBk

I noticed it get listed as well last night around 10pm and it got removed again straight away and I think that was in another account, so this is now the 3rd time it's up, I just don't get what's happening here. :?:

Tested the link out in the descriptions too and it seems to be safe.

Back again but different account, thousands of high end items listed up again.

The same person is hacking different accounts and bulk listing them...
