Something Really Fishy About This On eBay



Log in to see fewer ads
eBay item number:273745980573.

Absolutely ludicrous amount 'paid'(?),$870 for an S-130 and a front sight!!!!!!!
All after numerous ridiculous bids by bidders with 0 feedback and 1 feedback one after another with one bidder somehow raising his own ridiculously high bids one atop the last etc.
Something really funky is going on there.
I'm saving it to see how it pans out later,but something is rotten and really wrong about this auction,false bidders and/or who knows what all.

I couldn't find it? Maybe its already been zapped?
I wouldn't pay over $500 for the sights.

It pays to be a conscientious shopper, I always shop price on anything I buy. There are some rip-off artist sellers at other sires too, notably Amazon.

I paid $250 for my front and rear Mossberg sights and they came attached to a complete 144LSB, hand stop and sight inserts in the little orange tin.

I can smell it through the monitor. I'm sorry but nobodies going to pay that for those sights. Somethings not right. But who cares, anything goes on the net.

I don't and never have parted out any guns! But if I could get that much for sights, I might have to end up scoping a few!

From what I see on the bid history there were 2,MAYBE 3 honest bidders,one being me.

I think it was
A,someone's scheme to drive the price of this sight to astronomically ludicrous price levels or
B, maybe someone has a lot of parts and is looking to drive all the prices up or
C, just some persons joke/prank/hack for whatever reason.

Whomever was behind it we'll probably never know,but odds are these parts will be listed for sale on eBay again soon as I highly doubt anyone is really going to pay that amount for these sights.
I'm gonna wait and see.

You should have kept bidding,you might have won.

Sorry to reply so late to this. I see another one by the same seller and looks like the same picture and description sold for $132 on 3-28-19. At least that is what I would expect to sell in the general price range. Something definitely odd here.

I messaged the seller and he lamely stated the high bidder mistakenly bid in excess of $9000.00 for the sights,Yeah,right,but that still doesn't explain how that bidder's bids kept raising when no one else was bidding against them.
The sights were relisted and did sell for an overly high price of $132.
I still think there was some funny business involved in the first auction,like ghost bidders trying to jack up the selling price.
I guess we'll never know for certain exactly what the story was.

There's a ton of stuff like that going on on eBay. I see items every day, just to use an example, something you could buy at any store in the world for $100 max. Then you see them listed for $800 with 57 already sold. It can't possibly be true. It's even worse now that they are letting people selling items from China list that they are US sellers and letting them use a US address, even though the items are still shipped from China.

Amazon has sellers just like that, ridiculous over pricing and /or shipping. I would be surprised if they actually get people to buy for the pricing.
