6 Helios on the bay.... be careful

Just saw this today

http://cgi.ebay.com/Helios-Type-69-m...QQcmdZViewItem

3-day, no reserve (on $10K+ worth of gear :-), no trades since 01, very minimal description. Could be good, could be bad.......

I would rate it as total ripoff.

No reserve, $20 to ship, no selling activity ever, no buying activity since 2001 and wire transfer only... great if you hate your money or get off on waiting for packages.

Looks like it's been removed by ebay. Glad nobody got ripped off, this time........

Perhaps others did too, but I took matters into my own hands on this one and got thru to people at eBay. Stuff like this really pisses me off.

Good work! I saw those the other day too and thought the text seemed strangely familiar...
