Suspicious seller on ebay

Did anyone ever seach on ebay for an RNS-E and find the listing for 45 euro from the seller in China? It seems a little fishy cause it seems ot be the same format for each listing yet different seller names and the old listing show that the name is no longer registered sometimes. Kinda fishy. Here is one of the link.
Pretty fishy if you ask me, but peopel seem to bid on him. Checked feed back but doesn't seem to be quite right. Let me know what you guys think.

Definately a Scam.. try to keep people away from these.. they only accept wire transfers.. and if you look closely, they do have feedback above 10, but its feedback between all these shady accounts. And the items sold that leftback are nothing! 40 cents for ??????.......pretty good deal! pretty amazing people are still bidding.
i was also amazed that one went for 145 euro.
Yes i wouldnt buy from these sellers. Firstly, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is. Secondly, if you look through the seller's ratings, you will likely discover that the feedback ratings are bogus. It seems like this seller will do the following:

1) create a new seller id
2) get about a 10-12 positive feedback (probably all bogus)
3) list a highly desirable item, like the RNS-E with a very short listing (usually an auction ending within 24-48 hours), no reserve price and low starting price.
4) After selling the item, to an unwitting buyer (and probably after payment is sent), the account is unregistered.

Its a big scam, for sure. Be careful out there!
