    Question Is this for real?!

    I was just looking on Ebay and found a Besson currently going for less than $10 and free delivery! https://www.ebay.com/itm/Besson-BE96...EAAOSweRhambTD I know that this forum has pointed out that there are fraudulent sellers on that auction site. My suspicion was further raised by the fact that they had several instruments on sale with opening bids less than one dollar. Please help me to avoid making a mistake that I will regret later. Is this one of the bad actors I should avoid touching with a ten foot pole, or the deal of a lifetime?

    Oh, yes, that's a fraud. This technique has been used many times. The bid point is unusually low, and one of the other listings by the same seller is a Willson hard case. But the "seller" is probably a hijacked account, and I think this fraud hops from one hijacked account to another (as each fraud is discovered I suppose).
