Sounds like you get a kit of parts in a box...

272 feedback and only 2 in the last year? And before that was all dodgy DVDs?
Looks like a hijacked seller account.

I foolishly did a similar with a seller offering Dell XPS laptops for £30 each. My heart overtook my head and I purchased three. Luckily got an email from eBay shortly afterwards to say it was a hijacked account and got my money back. You would have thought I would have learnt my lesson after backing the Vega+!

PS. I hope you get your chair, but if not eBay payment protection is good in these cases.

I figured it was a Hijacked account, I also know I'll get my $$$ back off Ebay/Paypal so no risk really...I'm curious though if I'll actually get a box. I've read before they often ship you something so they can continue with the scam for a few weeks until they get rumbled...I just hope it's not a poop in a box...again.

EDIT..btw the original auction I bought the chair on ended with 614 sales...here's the orginal one...614 hopeful suckers.

On the subject of eBay accounts, I lost count of how many times I said "no" to someone trying to buy mine...

Yes they already refunded me, and probably 1000 others too, I'm assuming ebay ate the cost on that rather than being able to recover for the fake seller.

I would imagine they locked his PayPal account if they weren't too late.
