I think they were fake bidders, because no one with some brain would pay that much for a simple 48G these days;-)

However, a few hours ago an auction ended for an HP-48 SX (eBay 2582747798) . The winning bid was 74 EUR !

But this unit came complete with box.

Interesting. This auction has many, many bids placed by users with zero feedback. The seller also had an earlier auction for a Dish Network 500 antenna. The auction for the 48G and the antenna both had numerous bids from mi-bu2003 (0).

Now what are the odds that mi-bu2003 is interested in two disparate auctions from the same seller?

Can you say "shill"?

I think I'll report this one.

Maybe he's a tv addict who uses his 48 as a remote control. Maybe, but i doubt it.

I think he won the item himself ;-))

And then there were these from the same seller:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=50575&item=3065423116

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=50577&item=3066608779

Look at what he has been selling, most have pics and now suddenly not one but two 15C’s new in the box? Just remember: “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is”. I wonder how long it’s going to take for feedback to show up, good or bad.
