Suspiciously cheap eBay ads disappear.
[Excuse if double post]
Occasionally I receive emails from my eBay searches which contain suspiciously low starting bids for quality gear. See attached screenshot - only the first 2 items are 'real'.
If I click on the cheapies, I get a message to the effect that they can't be found anywhere on the eBay system.
Now... I know it's a scam - but not sure how it works. My working hypothesis is that someone is putting up cheap tickler ads trying to catch a fish, the search emails are sent out, and then later on the eBay self-checking algos delete them. Yes/no?
Anyone else getting this sort of traffic?
