    Free Passport S2? Is this a scam?

    Alright, so I'm on ebay looking for a cordless detector (i live in DC , they're illegal, so stealth is everything) and I come across this ad of a guy offering a S2 for free!

    Link:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=14935


    I know anything too good to be true is, so I wrote him and he hasn't written back. he has a FAQ section that he claims will answer most questions about why the hell this is happening, but of course, it doesn't work.

    Should I chance it? It's only $9. Can he somehow access my paypal account and screw me over?

    gotta be some kinda scam. The guy bought 10 items to get his profile up that high. and if you look the profiles of the people he bought from are private. So it looks like people were selling real cheap (.99c) items back and forth with people they probably know first hand to get their profile up high enough to look promising to get 9 bux and then they are gone and do it 100x a day with new accounts all the time. So people think "why not" chance it. Noone is going to come after the guy for $9 bux.

    Once again, if it looks to good to be true then it is..

    what a **** - and it looks like he just got busted. The listing is down.

    Is there any place selling S2's for less than $250 besides shady used ones on ebay?
