Scammers have cut & pasted pictures from an ended legit eBay auction and "listed" a mid-70's yellow Masi Gran Criterium on eBay. In the description they've added the following statement: "Buy it now price $1300 free shipping. For more info contact me at fsale08@....". eBay Item # 270288322031

I see this sort of thing for automobiles but it's this first time I've noticed it for a bike (though I imagine it's happened before). I've reported this fake auction to eBay so they may shut it down before many of you have a chance to see it. You can do this by selecting the link at the bottom of the auction page entitled "report this item"

The eBay ID on the listing is from California but it's very likely a stolen eBay ID. The recently ended legit auction was item # 380070281466

Here's the link to the fake auction: http://ebay.com/<blah> rd_W0QQitemZ270288322031QQihZ017QQcategoryZ98084QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQ cmdZViewItem
