Definite scam. If you email the seller it throws you out of Ebay and you have to sign in again. I have seen this before - I clicked on the watch this item and it doesn't show in my Ebay. It's some wierd thing that happens every now and then, and although he has feed back it probably has been hacked/cloned. Watch that,er, space.....

If you notice when you click on the item the 'report' item icon is there for a second and then the screen changes and it isn't there anymore. I was able to watch the item in my ebay, but when I clicked on my Ebay it wasn't there.....????

I got worried and changed my password asap.

I also reported it to EBay.
