Scam 749 on Ebay

Too good to be true?

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk.03-ebay.com/ws...m=270487541369

Sent an email and got this reply.....

Hi there,
The buy it now price is 3100 pounds, newborn necessities forces low price sale (description reflects the reality, no hidden faults). I work as an engineer in military service therefore would like to apologies for late replies, military base regulations don't allow outside calls for a faster communication. To keep it simple and clear in the eventuality you would like to close the deal we will be using www.escrow.com which is recommended by eBay and it suits my needs since it allows me to get 48 hours off to arrange collection. Please reply with any concerns.
Regards,
David Simmo (http://www.myspace.com/davidsimmo).

Could not be bothered to go through his myspace but that seemed odd for the two minutes I looked at ir

Why did he put the advert in 4 times?

Most definitely a scam, especially as he's asking for ESCROW.

Tell him you'll turn up with cash and see what he says!

I am deployed at the moment. I would like to use www.escrow.com since it allows you an inspection prior to the sale. Waiting your decision if you want me to register our transaction with www.escrow.com and eBay(I'll be paying the fees).
David.
