I dunno, seems like it's too good to be true at this price point.

The seller has 57 ratings, all as a buyer none as a seller. Picture says authorized dealer which is I believe is untrue.

I ran into something like this a little while back for a drone. It looks like a crazy good deal, but if you look at the seller's other items, they only have this one listing, yet they have a bunch of positive reviews over the last year. Those ratings are actually this person rating other sellers (probably all fake reviews) in order to make their rating go up, throw up a crazy (too-good-to-be-true) deal on some semi-popular item and rake in some temporary cash before shutting down the account and doing it again on a new account.

At least that's my understanding of what happens.

So, in short, it looks like it is probably a scam. Sorry about that :/

So, how are they in the US but they're charging Canadian currency?

Remember, even if this doesn't go through, you get your money back

I think that you can cancel through PayPal. Or report it through eBay.

What everybody said before me.
1. seller usually not associated with selling these types of items.
2. 'authorized dealer', but again, back to #1.
3. Few and old reviews, also non-related item.
4. too good to be true pricing

just a hunch .

Common sense needs to be your "details". Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

You can also then apply it here....since this scam low feedback seller isn't even allowed to be posted on SD.

I see these scams all the time for DJI products ($50 spark remotes, $30 batteries, etc). And they're always in a different currency. Why do they do it? Won't ebay just refund the buyers when they obviously don't ship. Weird scam.
