Hey Guys, I found this offert on ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.com/...=item5ae1df33b3

Can you belive it???

A 10k of equipment, for sale at 2k with free shipping.

In my opinion it's a stolen equipment, ther's no others reason to sell at those prices.

Best, Steve.

Those pictures have been around for over a year (I bid on that rig when it originally came up for sale), and any ebay offer where they ask you to contact them at another email address is fraudulent. Total scam!

It is a scam. Look at his other items for sale! If he owns all those items, he is already loaded with money and why bother selling them on ebay?
Fender Precision Bass 1959, Hasselblad, Leica, Digidesign Control 24...
The guy used to sell only batteies. Look at his feedbacks.

SCAM!!

Odds are the user "all battery" has had his account hacked and he is just now finding out. =)

And it's removed at this time.
Nice work from all of you involved in detecting and reporting it.

He also has a Sony EX1, a Canon 1d, a whole bunch of lenses and other stills gear, a 21kw generator, guitars, amps etc.
