Why is this listing on eBay so cheap?

Hi I was looking for a new treadmill and I see a sole fitness F80 listed at 43 bucks. What am I missing?

Should I just take a gamble?

Its a scam. Common sense would tell you it costs probably 15x that amount just to ship it from china.

I believe its a scam as well, but since its on eBay, aren't the buyers protected even if nothing ships or a piece of garbage ships?

Sure. If you want to hold up 44 dollars for a month and go through the process when its obviously a scam.

Why would a seller run a scam when there is so little chance of the transaction going through, what's the motivation?

Because there is always a chance it will go through and it costs them nothing to try. Same reason you see 29 dollar auctions for surface tablets and 40 dollar auctions for iphones. Only takes 1 moron to order and forget or not to the proper things for a refund for the scammer to come out with a profit.

Thanks for taking the time to respond. I just find this too much work for little profit, but well the world is filled with idiots.
