Not all, but many of this persons camera gear listings has this same description. Can't remember, but it seems I've found this type of listing in other sellers camera gear as well. I'm guessing they are obviously grey market, but even then, the price is way too low even for grey market items.

No way I would bite on these, but just wanted to know if anyone else knows whats going on with these listings.

BTW, this is for a Nikon 400mm f/2.8G VR lens.

Yes. It's called a scam. You should report it.

I actually tried to report it, but kind of difficult to classify it when you go through ebays process of reporting it. I'll have to try again and as it was a little confusing when you have to go through the selections of reporting it.

There should be something about breaking the eBay regulations, which it appears to be doing by asking you to "send me the message ...".

Thanks. Figured it out and ebay has already removed his listings.

The same sort of "ZOMG!! message me before ordering!!" scams are all over Amazon marketplace too.

Must be some non-insignificant number of people falling for them. Shame.

I see this crap on Amazon too. Called Amazon and they finally looked into the seller but it shouldn't be that difficult to flag listings.
