Is this a scam?

Look at the feedback--only two ebay members have given ebay user monsterbikeliquidation feedback and they:

1) both have no feedback
2) both have only been with ebay a short time--in fact they both joined ebay on the same day 5/24/03
3) both bought from monsterbikeliquidation on the same day 6/1/03

It also looks like both left feedback without paying, since the pay now button still appears. The feedback itself looks remarkably similar.

It might not actually be fraud per se. It is rather "penny ante" if it is.
It's hard to say.DERICK

Both of thoes feedback were left within 2 minutes of each other. Definately pumping up his own feedback rating. He is based in the U.S. which is a plus. Most of his products are pretty low dollar. Why scam for such a small amount when you could list one Colnago and be done.
Yow might try contacting him with some questions. Ask if the product you're interrested in has some feature you know it doesn't. Most of these scammers will tell you yes to any question, no matter how bizarre.
For those small amounts I would say give it a try.
send him an email and see what he says... nmKristin

He might be pumping up his own feedback, but I don't see any evidence of any scam yet? There is a 3rd buyer now that seems happy.
