A private auction? Why on earth?
I reported it to EBay. Private auction because...Spunout

Here is what I posted to EBay authorities:

This is a scam auction. Two sizes are listed as available, such that this auction violates the rules for multiple items.

The description for the auction is for a completely different item than that show in the image.

These scammers use 'private auctions' so that community members cannot warn off bidders that the auction is a scam.

The wheelset appeared to be by Shimano, but the ad said Campy- and only a psycho would put a Campy cassette and decals on Shimano wheels... I'll see if I can dig the photo out of my internet cache ;)
multiple sizes in a single auction is always big flag.Spunout

It's already sold but it looked like BS even with the feedback. I did email him and it was "Western Union only". I'm sure if you checked, he'd have at least one more ;-)
