I have contacted this 'new' seller' who said he just moved out in England. His reply from Ebay noted: "eBay sent this message to Charles Henry  (golverrau)." However when I mentioned Steve and Serena Hoffman in a later message, he is now responding signing his name as 'Steve Hoffman'. He may not be aware Ebay noted 'Charles Henry' earlier. Anyway, he only wants CASH sent through Western Union, saying he is not yet a citizen and can't do PayPal and would not respond to using www.escrow.com. I also contacted the original seller for info, but have no response from them yet. I said I wouldn't bid since there is no guarantee of shipment after a cash transfer. Will let you know if I hear from original seller.

Looks like the auction has been taken down already. Looks like we stopped a scam in its tracks!

Ugh, the "seller" contacted me directly (with my other "secret" e-mail alias) after the auction was removed to see if I was interested, after I had sent a question via eBay asking him/her if the auction was a fake. Apparently, they now live in Miami, FL (not Indiana OR the UK).

Just remember to watch the warning signs... sellers with 0 feedback (not even a single purchase on eBay) are a bad bad sign.
