Have you guys seen eBay's new feedback rules? So much for trying to create a free marketplace.

at a glance, it looks like the same thing as the OP. claims to sell 2 imacs, needs to get rid of them and has inconsistent pics, one clearly from the internet. I'd say its a scam

If you want to get it all back as it never happened, then yes. Where did the $48 go? Money he had already spent?

I'm not really sure. I suspect it's the royalties that ebay collects from each auction.

Wow! LOL! I think the TS got screwed but without the KY. Hopefully it is true!
