Cox Conquest, Why pay $148 when you can buy with $130? Funny eBay Bids

Post  aungmyatoo on Sun Apr 29, 2018 12:35 am

I am watching this one, Cox Conquest. The bidding price went up to $148 now.
The funny things is it is also selling at the same time by another eBayer with $130 buy it now, there are plenty of this, 3 sold out of 10, so still left 7 pieces with $130.
But why pay this one $148? Am I missing something?

If it’s too good to be true it probably is.

Ships from Hong Kong sets up a red flag for me. Highly unlikely one seller has 10 of these and at that location.

If it was California Dan that was selling these then I’d say go for it.

Yeah, not sure about this one. Feedback profile looks ok but I went back over a year and found no buyer feedback for the 3 Conquests sold. But, there is feedback left by the seller for two of them in the past month, but they show exactly the same listing as the current one. I guess that's understandable. So, if there's seller feedback left, why no buyer feedback? Huh...
Pretty strange for a seller with this much feedback to have no negatives & just 2 neutrals. I'd be very careful, but then, most of these "too good to be true" ebay deals come up as a new seller with no feedback. This one's covered their tracks pretty well if they are a scam.

Could be very possible that the seller lambchee for listing:

Ebay Hong Kong: NOS Cox Conquest .15

from Hong Kong is a hobby dealer. Perhaps overseas the demand for the engine isn't as high as it is here. Chinese are very industrious in making money with sales. I dunno, both from Hong Kong have 100% feedback with over 1,000 sales each, which is unusually good feedback for overseas. They probably are legitimate. YMMV (your mileage may vary).  Wink

Back in the 1970's, I used to buy camera equipment from TM Chan in Hong Kong. Even after one paid customs duty, I could save money on Olympus OM-1 camera and lenses. So, these may very well be legit. However, since rureelybob is local and already established makes him a good choice.

I have made several purchases from rureelybob. All the transactions went very well. I would gladly purchase from him again based on my past experiences with him. My last too good to be true transaction with someone in China led to me getting a counterfeit product. Unfortunately, things got a little tense before I was offered a refund for the product and return shipping. I am still waiting to see if my paypal account is credited the total amount. If you go the Hong Kong route I hope your experience is much better than mine.

By far the best production Cox engine ever produced. It's a very high power pylon engine that I've been using for the past few years. Enjoy your Engine!

So far I ordered 2 and received 1 within a week. Still waiting for second one.
I planned to buy 3 of them but don't dare to buy in 1 shot, so one by one. Will post again when I received all.

For my first buy, the muffler was included. After that seller updated the photos which muffler not included, still wait and see for my second one whether with muffler or without.
