Hacked Account?
« on: September 12, 2017, 11:12:01 AM »
$15 BIN for a 1938 WECO 302 with E1 handset. Seller has no recent activity.

There's also a second identical item listed by this person. If hacked, why? For $15? And it's local pick up only. Strange.

Photo seems to have been stolen from this reputable phone collector:

Ebay also suggests another identical listing, but this one has been deleted.

The listing says 2 available, since it's local pickup I guess first come gets choice.

Looking at the feedback of the first listing, it seems that account hasn't received or left any feedback for over a year, suggesting that it has indeed been borrowed without consent, and probably abandoned by whoever had it originally...

I reported both to eBay. Same photo used in both.
