Maybe someone should try to contact the bidders and give them a heads up. Also, someone might want to notify ebay. Is there a way to post a question to the seller so the question shows up so bidders can see what this guy is doing?

Also look at the guy's feedback which is zero.

Not cool at all.

I like the part where he can ship juke boxes to most countries, especially Europe. Is this guy on drugs or what!! Guess he figures the Brits won't come gunn-in for him. He must be a majior stock holder in Fed-Ex.

Seems to me I remember that when you ask a Seller a question, it somehow appears within the auction for that item below the descriptions shipping and payment terms.

Why doesn't someone ask (question) why he is selling someone else's sign, saying they smell a rat but not really pointing the finger and crying rat! Just be casual! Make 'em SWEAT!!!!

i emailed him and asked if he would sell me the sign off ebay. this is the email he sent me....... Hi
This sign is in nice shape. Everything is in really nice condition. Please
refer to the pictures for an accurate description. I will ship it from
Granada, Spain where I am currently located. I will end my auction soo so I
can sell it off ebay. For security reasons I preffer using escrow.com. I
will ship it to you very easy. You will just have to pay an extra $60 for a
crate chosen by you. You will also get a 5 days inspection. We can split
the taxes. The BYN is $4500
I uploaded an archive with the pics and you will have to dowload it for
there. I got many emails requesting pics and I have a bad internet
connection. here is the link:

Thank you,

I was thinking. Let's see who can get this guy to agree to the lowest price. He's down to $4300. Who can get him to go lower?
