    No of course not

    Hi. I believe that amazon protect you against any fraudulent prices (A to Z guarantee)
    But looks like seller - galootbooks seems the best option.

    If you can afford to lose the money for a while, you will get it back eventually, then you can try. Looks too good to be true though

    No dont touch it total scam.

    If it seems too good to be true it probably is.

    Why would you even try? It's fair enough to make a gamble when you may potentially make a gain, but when you're dealing with scammers, you're gambling between wasting time and temporarily losing money and wasting time and permanently losing money. The only party who's likely to win anything out of the gamble is the scammer.

    Also.. someone has taken the bait and bought one. Meaning they have incentive to try again rather than get banned by Amazon if you report them.

    I;ve been looking to pick one up on the secondary market as I dont want to pay RRP and I can tell you these things go instantly even at RRP or above, second hand! Save your money and buy one for a bit more and enjoy it sooner than never if you can afford to.

    Yes of course it will be ok, here is a link to a satisfied customer.

    It seems these scammers create fake seller accounts on Amazon and fake bank account or overseas account in a country with lax jurisdiction using the company details of real businesses, then as soon as they get payment they quickly withdraw the funds before the buyer makes a claim so it is Amazon who has to cover the bill?

    Amazon hold the funds themselves for a period after the sale, and then the seller is paid. This avoids hit and runs. Well, it should anyway.

    It's your money of course but anything this low so soon into the life cycle is just a scam. Put it this way - no other store is selling it this cheap and this isn't Amazon selling it, this is an online seller using Amazon as a storefront so it's a huge risk and unless you can afford losing that amount don't bother. Save your money, wait a little longer and buy from a trusted seller or store. That's my advice.
