No kidding that's a major scam. First, the picture is a dead giveaway (ripped from our forum.)

Second, the seller's feedback.

Please.

i wonder if this guy actually lives in china. wouldn't that be a bitch if he was living the good life off of scams like this? you know, because this type of thing is probably legal there. pardon my sentence complexity/uncomplexity...i'm not sober. we might think he gets no sales, but he's really a millionaire.

No, this kind of things is NOT legal in China, just like how it's illegal in North America. There are 1.3 billion people in China and I think the Chinese government will have a *TINY* bit harder time in controlling these kind of stuff than north american govt. If he IS a millionaire, btw, he wouldnt have to do these kind of stupid stuff anyway.

All these talks, did someone actually REPORT this to Ebay?

I think they're probably supposed to be chinese characters.

Edit: This is my favourite feedback "good..vendee..trust in.business.next time again cooperate..AAA++++++++++++++++++"

It reads like someone being held at gunpoint and being forced to think up compliments.

Does anyone know who has this particular HF-1? Because if someone owns it and are not the seller, eBay should be contacted. Unlike the (seemingly) phony RS-1 auction, this one can be easily proven a fraud. eBay ought to take it down and ban the seller. That would be the right thing to do.
