    I like the chance to win cash with this auction. I could pay $9.99 and win a whole dollar!

    Despite his claim it isn't a drawing, raffle, etc, it sure smells like one. He's got a crap load of these running too, some with a PS3 pictured

    Looks like a Pepsi Prime to me.

    But you won't get it, and neither will anyone else, report it for being a raffle and it'll disappear, better yet report ALL the seller's auctions.

    Not only that, but if IIRC, the usersname was bruticus1977; a no longer registered user. If that was eBay's doing, it's a bit harsher than in the past where they would merely cancel auctions and let the seller go on selling.

    Then let this be a lesson to all those who would attempt to rip off TF Collectors. Our name is Legion: for we are many.

    Hehe, I posted a thread about this too, just below this one right now (sorry if mine came 2nd).

    This seller had 0 feedback so I'd guess that's why he got pulled, essentially he just set up an account to do this raffle scam and was not a legitimate ebay user in any form.
