We don't like links to live bidding sales, so maybe just post the item number.

Is this one of them?

Another scam. Looks like the same seller who was selling a Merryweather with Flame Proof Wool labels recently. The photos used were from an original model that was sold by a trusted UK seller. I alerted the seller to it at the time. That seller was from China and had zero feedback, like this one.

I do wonder whether there is a single person behind all these zero-feedback Chinese listings since the sellers' user names are all built up in the same way (rather like TuT's).

Hi John, thanks for putting the listings on, didn't want any of our members to think they were getting a cheap buy Pete.
