    Hmm, looks to good to be true. I wonder why only $1900. I wonder if something is wrong with it. It also says 27HP Kawasaki Diesel, hmm, what gives there.

    Hmm,sounds like a heck of deal. However, the fact that the seller just joined the site today and has 0 feedback raises an eyebrow to how ledgitimate the it really is. The whole 'pre-approved' bidder thing confuses me.

    I guarantee if you send this person 1900 dollars you can kiss it good by! I have learned one thing about ebay, if it sounds to good to be true you can bet your arse it is a scam.

    One thing I noticed about that mower, it was a 2004 or older because the 2005 XP was on the larger frame of the XS which had the 15.5 gallon fuel capacity and the instrument panel on that was between your legs, where on the 2005 it was on the right fuel tank. Also, in the description, it said 24 inch drive tires, but the 2005 would have had 26 inch drive tires. Why would a 2004 only have 13 hours on it, seems weird to me, but like someone already said, it's no longer listed.

    Of course it was a scam, notice the word STEAL!!!

    The seller would have asked you to wire him the money, then you would have received nothing in return. I cant understand why these guys make it so obvious that they are going to rob you.

    Hopefully the listing was removed by ebay, but I wouldnt be supprised if some moron sent him some money!!

    I also am curious if Mac received a response from the seller.
