Seller has (0) feedback and no one has jumped at this in 12 or so hours. What a deal being passed up.

Dicey, throw $14 into the pot and see if you loose it or get a phone, right?

OK, I took the bait.

It's only $14. We'll see what I get in the mail..

I'll take some detail pictures when it arrives.

Excellent!  keep us posted - I sent the Seller a question yesterday and have not heard back.  My bet is the transaction will be cancelled.

If a genuine antique Ericsson phone actually arrives, I will be amazed.

I'm with Dave, it will probably be cancelled. You will get a message in poorly written English with some vague excuse for not shipping it.

Depends on the definition of "get."

It was a BIN so he got the phone, paid his money but is still waiting to see if the will get the phone.

BTW: did everyone or anyone notice the condition of the phone was listed as "New?"

I noticed that, and was one of the questions I sent to the Seller - but got no response.

I have made the mistake of listing something as NEW.   He does have zero feedback and obviously new to eBay or not so new to scamming....Doug

Here's another phone for sale from China.  Notice how similar the seller names are - I suspect it's the same person.
