    Default ]Usp elite 9 -- Is somebody running prices up un GB?

    Multiple ended auctions with the same pictures on GB with these things supposedly selling for $2800?

    Appears to be the same bidders also. It shows its a relist but the dates don't make sense.
    What do you guys think? People just using the same pictures?

    Weird.

    Your second link explains that it is resisted. The third link seller is ptmccain. Isn't that the guy who has joined here under different names each time he gets banned?

    Same images shared on same hosting site. Seems like same guy or he made quite an effort to 'borrow' them.

    You can only run up prices if there are buyers, otherwise it is delusional thinking on the part of the seller. $2,800 is nuts if you ask me. One or two sales does not make a trend; let's see where these go over several months.

    Your are right about the ptmccain


    I would say that this is a scam.

    The serial number is the same in all the auctions.

    All 3 listings are the same pictures. The $1600 is a different seller in between the relist dates. I have seen fake buyers in cahoots with sellers on other auction sites. Hopefully it isn't starting to happen on GB.

    Looks like the first guy sold it to Mr. McCain for a hair under $3k. McCain then tried to flip it but only got $1660 in bids so then he goes back and crawfishes on the first deal. Original seller then relists the same gun and sells it to another, different party for $2800 indicating "buyers remorse" by the first buyer (McCain).

    The dates match up and it makes sense to me. Our most uninteresting fellow strikes again. And, yup, it's the same guy; location indicates Baldwin, MO.

    Yep one and the same.......................TooSixy had this guy pegged on GB too, apparently he is running scams on GB with multiple personalities there also................He was on here the other day as a new personality flogging his own MR762 auction......
