Its good, because Ebay gets less money that way. He states in his description '$569 total'. So why sweat it?

It is a scam. And you should report any auction you see that way. People should pay their dues just like every other LEGITIMATE seller on ebay. A scammer is a scammer.

A scam?
More like the seller saving e-bay listing fees.
The final price is the final price you pay, who cares what is product and what is shipping?
What matters is the total cost to you.

I wouldnt call the guy a SCAMMER, Hes just trying to save a little on the listing fees. Ya gotta think he pays to list it, pays to sell it, and then pays paypal when money is sent. All thees fees start to add up and before you know it your down 20-30 bucks

On a $600 auction on ebay you'll pay about $60 to Ebay and $30 to Paypal!! The fees are INSANE and have just gone up again.

You don't pay your taxes you go to jail. They call you a criminal. You circumvent ebay fees you are a scammer. End result of people doing that is the rates go up for the rest of us who sell within the rules.

You all go ahead and raise your kids to think it's ok to bend the rules as long as it's to your own benefit. And wonder why the world is such a great place these days.

i saw it as well, they are just saving themselves a few bucks, not scamming anyone except for ebay, ebay will probably just start charging fees on shipping sooner or later

What happens if it is lost in shipping? Do you have insurance on 569 or 269?

Keep crying.

It's a way of getting around eBay's listing fee's that they keep raising.

Sorry bud, I'm not the one crying. Sounds like you guys are the ones crying about ebay fees not me. I'm just calling a spade a spade.
