Further update: I wrote this guy and he admitted, with tons of attitude along with it, that '1woeman' is in fact his dad in Austin and he was intentionally trying to jack the price up. I believe this is against eBay's guidelines.

Could someone verify this before I make a formal complaint?

Thanks,
