Not sure about this one, nor about the seller. One positive feedback and the guy who gives it has four himself. And what's with the honest part in the feedback? Sounds like someone has a partner feeding the feedback. The only time I have put in my feedbacks about honesty is when there has been a problem and the seller went out of his/her way to correct the problem.

This globe has appeared for sale about 4 times over the past few months. The sellers have been different but the picture of the globe has always been the same. It has been pulled from ebay several times. I would be very cautious about bidding. I'm sure others can add more to this story.

Great, I'm still the high bidder. I hope I'm out bid or better yet Ebay ends the auction.

Brian, contact feebay and let them know that you believe that this auction is a sham and ask them to investigate. If it is a sham, as some of believe, they will pull the auction. Good luck.

I'll try, I don't have very good luck with Ebay (talking to them).

Brian,
It's not that hard to report on this stuff.
Copy the auction number to paste in a form later.
Click on "Security Center" near the bottom of the eBay auction page.
Choose "Report Another Problem" and click the button.
Choose "Listing Violation" and click the button.
Then choose the multiple choice answer that most closely matches your concern. Follow directions.
You may have to paste in the auction number at the end.

I have seen this work to shut down scams many times. Maybe not as fast as we'd like, but it does work most of the time.
