Looks like a scam to me. Too good to be true. Seller rating is 0.

 

Buyer beware.

It's one of the things blackhats do with hacked paypal accounts... sell wanted items very quickly at cheap prices on ebay, use the money to buy bitcoin and dump the account.

 

Already the profile has sold more than 100 of these drives, but not a single seller feedback rating.

 

Just checked the other items for sale from this seller:

Definitely a scam.

Update.

 

I have been in contact with Paul and he told me that Ebay and paypal contacted him and that this was a scam and that they canceled the order.

 

Please note

 

I could remove this thread but I wont, I will leave it to serve as a warning to others,  Be extra careful with these offers if they sound too good to be true, Its a scam. Especially around Christmas.
