Default McCall/McPherson photo book on eBay - cheap!

https://www.ebay.com/itm/hearses-flo...D/172973194724

I bought one, figured I'd leave the others for someone else. At $6 including shipping seems hard to go wrong.

This person is selling multiples of everything that they have listed. My best guess is they are extremely strapped for cash, and are dumping at way below market value, or the items don't exist in their possession, and they are going to be burning a lot of buyers. Ultimately, PayPal will have to make good on these sales. To try my theory that the goods don't exist, I made a $3.00 offer on the book, which was already deeply discounted, and the seller accepted the offer. If I get a book for $4.01 which includes the shipping, I will be quite amazed. The shipping by USPS for that book will probably be about $2.00.

I get this regularly with collector radios one will be offered at a cheap buy it now price TOO CHEAP. Its always a scam usually someones account has been hacked. Its usually easy to spot as the sellers feedback will show they sell no radios but other goods. This guy who knows? Time will tell

I got into this over a wheel balancer took 2 months to settle a 20 buck thing. In this case the hope is it will take some time for some one to file the complaint. They get 100 sold a 5 bucks in the two week time frame and pop up under a different name.

Seller has 4 or 5 positive feedbacks for the same book at $6.95, may just be a good deal.

I just did the same thing that Paul did. I offered $3 and my offer was accepted. My cost w/shipping $4. He has some negative feedback, but none due to failure to ship the goods.
