There are two auctions running for a Life porcelain pump sign. The legitimate auction is by Gothamgas. The other auction is using the photo from the real auction.It has a bid for $1000. The real item is at $2499. The real seller has notified ebay but who knows if anything will happen. Here is a link to the fraudulent auction.

...I e-mailed ebay about this "zorik1988" guy as well, hopefully they'll do something...anyone can tell he copied the photo, and it sure looks like he's going for a quick PayPal payday...

Thanks for the heads up. I put a bid on when it first showed up. I had been emailing to get info from seller. When I wasn't getting any response, started to wonder and looked at other sign listed. I knew I couldn't be lucky enough to be the only one bidding. It definitely started to smell fishy. When it smells like fish, play it safe and don't get fried!!!

Somehow this got yanked - no longer on ebay. Hopefully, it was because ebay responded to you guys and did the right thing.
