    Only a sucker would think they are getting that for $20.

    Can't see the pics, but the combined total sounds like a pretty good deal, actually.

    EDIT: oh wait, it's for the Brave version. Probably not such a good deal after all.

    It's an attempt to get around the eBay fees.

    also, if someone says that it's busted, the wrong one or anything else to that effect all they have to do is say "ok ship it back and i'll refund you the $20"

    That's why I don't get too excited when I see those "too good to be true" BIN prices on Ebay. I always check the shipping charges first, many times the shipping is exhorbitant.

    That's when you open a dispute through ebay to get your total cost refunded.

    If something's too good to be true, then it probably is. :popcorn

    See, THIS is why ebay's changing its fee structure to include shipping costs in the total at the end. Which, unless there's some trick to all this, will pretty much prevent me from shipping internationally off ebay, like, ever.

    But yeah, it's people like this that ruin it for everyone else.

    Fee-cheating aside, is this remotely a good deal?

    Its not even cheating since eBay changed the fee structure to include shipping costs.

    Yeah, this. Aren't RIDICULOUS shipping costs going to be LEGAL very shortly?

    I'm not defending this particular guy, I'm just thinking we might see ALOT of this very shortly.
