    Guys just a warning on this Ebay seller! He urged me to buy his item out of Ebay and just sent me an invoice thru paypal. Good thing i was so keen and inquired on paypal about the mail i received which paypal confirmed it was a phishing mail.

    Note: though his email add is paypal verified but he is sending out dummy paypal invoice which is confirmed by paypal as a phishing scam.

    Sounds like he is just trying to avoid the fees and PP said it was a scam to make sure Ebay got their share.

    That seller is listing high dollar Oakleys but is "out of town" so expect delays in shipment. SCAM!!

    If he tries to avoid ebay charges why in the first place he posted his ads on ebay wherein it is a common knowledge that you have to pay fees coz you are using their services. Still to me it raises a red flag! Plus sending a phishing mail is a total scam. When i inquired to paypal the legitimacy of the paypal invoice link i have never mentioned to paypal that the seller is from ebay i just told them its a private seller.
