eBay scam

Anybody on here recognize this axle?


I recently won the bid for it on eBay and after contacting the seller about picking it up they said there was no local pickup available but they said they would ship it for $50 using fed ex freight.
The axle was suppose to be in Dallas and was going to be shipped to my house in Lexington. The seller was very slow to respond every time I asked about shipping charges and insurance.

This sounded awfully suspicious so I started looking around and found a San Antonio listing on craigslist with the same selling description verbatim and the exact same axle pics but it is now expired. I never paid for the axle but was just wondering if anybody on here knew the guy selling on CL. His name is Jeremy but that's all I could get off the expired listing from sept 7th.

Here's the eBay link

Don't worry I didn't pay for it. I saw the 0 by the sellers name but everybody starts somewhere on eBay so I figured I'd go ahead and bid since it was only in Dallas.

I'm pretty sure the seller is going to relist it again. eBay and PayPal have protection for some items but if they don't cover it usually your credit card company can get you your money back.
