    (Admin note - Active auction link removed)

    I'm looking for a cheap LCD for the kitchen, and this fits the bill. However, looking at the sellers feedback, its on very small dollar amount transactions (less than $3.00) and all of a sudden the seller has a "warehouse overstocked with these items".


    Kinda seems like a setup. What do you think?

    I think it's fairly legit. She only has 3 for sale, not like she suddenly has 150 of them for this price. Shipping is $65 so total price is $160.

    Some negatives but positives and on eBay since Nov 2003. Probably OK, but you get what you pay for on eBay...

    Avoid this guy, it's a total setup. This is one of the reasons we don't allow active auction links on the HTF.

    Sorry Patrick, didn't realize the active auction link rule.
    I hope you weren't implying me when you said "Avoid this guy, it's a total setup".

    I've been around HTF for 5 years and had a legit question. Sorry if I violated forum rules. I knew the auction link thing was a no-no in the FS/FT area, but I thought the after hours lounge was fair game.

    Buying low dollar items to beef up the feedback ratings looks like a scam to me.

    Avoid the Ebay seller.
