Nitecore SRT7s for only 25 bucks ?

another one of “those” evil-eyed Ebay sellers maybe..

(updated the last link, due to the seller being sold-out. Silly

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Nitecore-SRT7-Revenger-SmartRing-Tactical-960-Lumen-CREE-XM-L2-LED-Flashlight/121372755101?_trksid=p2047675.c100011.m1850&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20140620075055%26meid%3D7895016328405250426%26pid%3D100011%26prg%3D20140620075055%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D10%26sd%3D121370942603

Update: That one is gone too. I see Ebay is onto that seller and likely red-flagging these deals as more scams.

Hm.. I always wanted an SRT7. Not sure if this is some kind of scam or what but $25 is crazy cheap.

exactly what i was thinking. i seen so many scams on ebay with new sellers, but this is the first time i seen a seller actually has some “positive” feedback from past sales selling what he claims to be a 125 + dollar SRT7 for 25 bucks. its fishy… Flat Stare

Don’t do it. They gather fake reviews then they post a “deal”. Been there done that. I had to wait 2 months to get my money back from Paypal.

I have heard of those scammers, who have many fake accounts created to set up positive feedbacks to fool buyers.

It’s China, they have buildings full of World of Warcraft players or some other game and all they are doing is farming for gold or whatever. Nothing surprises me no more.

If only Frown Would love an SRT7 for $25. Why do I still feel the urge to buy it knowing it's probably a scam?

Just ordered one, it’s only $25 and if all else fails Paypal will sort it out.

I don’t think so but *still bought NINE *pcs! [9 sold in 1 hour]

How abaut price $85 on Aliexpress or DHgate? if somebody is really intersting that light.
Are those both safe place to buy or not? I have only experience on Aliepress with ten transaktion.
I select only seller with many of positive feedback.

+1 for me! If it doesn't make it here I will dispute it and Paypal won't withdraw the money. I will either be disapointed in finding out that it indeed was a scam, or stoked that I got an SRT7 for $25 (and wishing I bought a whole lot more!)

Why bother. it is a scam, I’ve seen so many scammer like these, they sell nothing more than cheap items and get good ratings and when they think they have enough feedback, then suddenly they sell high in demand flashlights and wait for the suckers to pour in their money.. sure you will get your money back from paypal, but it a hassle.
Why add drama to your life as you don’t have enough already Smile

I’ve seen decent price for about $$80-$90 I’m sure you can get that price these days Smile

The only way to do a great work is to love what you do.

I don’t want the light enough to pay $90 for it, I am happy to gamble $25 on it, if it turns up I got a bargain, if it doesn’t I will file a Paypal claim.

This is a well designed sales scam, I wouldnt spend a dime on this if i ever wanted a SRT7 I would get it from an authentic source, otherwise cheap SRT7 well i’ll live with the loss of not possibly getting a good deal.

If I didn’t already order 2 flashlights (which I haven’t received yet, gg China post), I would take this gamble. That light is really nice…

Deal over! I chose not to buy. There’s an old saying – “If it’s too good to be true you’re gonna eat shit”.

Yeah, probably it is scam but why scammer would have stopped listing after 40 sold units? Who knows…

The only risk there is is to immobilize 25USD for 45 days right? If it is a scam you’ll get it back with paypal.

My English isn’t perfect but I’m trying to improve it. If you see something that doesn’t sound right or is just plain wrong, please feel free to point it out! Smile

This might attribute to the increase in PP fees. Party

I have ordered hundreds of items of ebay and only had to resort to a paypal claim twice. Many of those deals the price seemed way to good to be true but they have always arrived, this may well be a scam but there’s only one way to find out. I will report back when i get my item or the 45 days is up.

On the other hand, if it is a scam, I don’t see the point for the scamer, as most of the buyers will place a Paypal claim.
Maybe he did a mistake in the price and when he realized it he removed the item from sale?
