    I've seen auctions like this before. It is a scam designed to collect ebay user IDs with malicious intent.

    Wheres is the scam? The starting bid is $160 not the selling price. Who knows what shipping would cost? Maybe they have the same problem with the Triton deck some over here are having. Nice looking unit, wrong deck.

    The same guy has a BRAND NEW JD757 60" cut buy it now for $3,000. Why doesn't someone on here try it and let us know how it works out...:)

    email and ask where you can pick up the machine and pay for it. they will say they are over seas and shipping is free. then you say pay upon delivery and never hear from them again.

    I went ahead and reported the activity the Ebay security and ask them to investigate the "farming" of information of the so called pre-approved bidders. I should get a reply back in 24-48 hours. Having been a victim of identity theft myself, I make this kind of stuff my MISSION !!! :weightlifter:

    Whats wrong? Am I missing something obvious? The bidding sky rochets in the last hours and this guy isn't going to let it go for the three digits. Do you mean just because it doesn't say 'reserve not met yet'?
