I had a guy trying to sell me Nikon D90 for £450 complete with lens from Amazon marketplace, when I told Amazon that it looked a scam it took two weeks for his ad to go, I belie ve there are as many fakes and scams on Amazon now as Ebay as it looks an easy option for the crooks.... stay away! :thumbsup:

Yes, Amazon are a good company to deal with but just about anyone can be in the marketplace offering any kind a deal as they are not vetted... The scam usually shows when you try to buy the item and it will not allow shipping to your address so contact becomes via email asking to ignore Amazon as they are having problems, just send the cash by maony transfer...blah, blah :w00t:
