I'd go with Hail on this one. I put my iPod touch up there about 2 weeks ago, Twice it got bought out by fake bidders.

This is pretty lame. I reported a problem too.

If you have to steal someone else's pictures (thus nothing is built) and you claim to do it by Christmas, well, you're full of crap.

I feel bad for whomever won the auction.

If it wasnt a fake bid, I pity the buyer. If it was fake, they probably deserve it.

My desk! Oh noes!

I took a look, most of the bids were from people with no or low feedback. So it probably was a wash in the end.
