Dear Minsung Kim (my email address),

The following is a notice from eBay Trust & Safety regarding:

Item Number - 7524860258
Item Title - Brand New Canon EOS 1DS Mark II 17.2 Megapixel PRO SLR!

Our records show that you placed a bid on this item. We removed this item from the Site and cancelled your bid because it appears that the seller's account has been compromised and used by an unauthorized third party. The seller's privileges to trade on eBay may be temporarily suspended while we investigate this matter further. Due to privacy concerns we will not be able to share further details related to this seller.

If someone claiming to be the seller asks you to complete a transaction outside of eBay, we strongly recommend that you ignore the request. Transactions for items listed on eBay that are completed outside of the eBay marketplace are not covered by the Buyer Protection services offered by eBay and can be highly indicative of fraud.

If you have already paid, you may wish to pursue recuperating your funds. Some steps you might take include:

  1. Ask the seller for a refund
  2. If you paid by check, ask your bank to stop payment
  3. If you paid by credit card, contact your credit card company’s security department
  4. If you have made a payment by money order or wire transfer, you may contact that company for further information at 1-800-325-6000 (Western Union), or at 1-800-926-9400 (Money Gram)
  5. If you paid with PayPal, review the Buyer Complaint Process at:
    /csg/p?www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=p/gen/protections-buyer-outside

There are many tips on how to protect yourself with any Internet transaction in the eBay Security & Resolution Center located at:

Our goal is to ensure that your eBay experience is safe so that you can buy confidently. It is rare that something goes wrong with a transaction on eBay, but we're here to help you protect yourself in the event it does.

Yay.  Death to the con artist.  (BTW I haven't paid anything; indeed it was I that spotted so many fishy things here and there and contacted the eBay security department in the first place.  So no worries there.  :D)

Oh man, and that was the $6000 camera too, wasn't it?

It was. :D

My hero

*snuggles*
I knew something was fishy. When you first posted your snipe, I took a look at it, and then saw another one of his auctions of the same camera with a buy it now for half the price.
I've seen a lot of whacked out crap from eBay, and even had many people try to defraud me as a seller, but, I'm pretty happy I haven't seen that one. Yet.
