Subject: [CR]eBay Outing - Scam???

Five extraordinarily interesting bikes now on eBay. Low starting bids and no reserves. Seller with zero feedback, an eBay member since May 28th and located in Russia. Payment by Western Union only. Bidders with low/no/hidden feedback but enough "real" bidders to make things seem legit.

Would you question seriously the sanity of a list member who bid on these things? I'm sorely tempted - but, after all, that's the whole nature of a clever scam isn't it. Some mouthwatering stuff, folks, if real.
