Yesterday I was cruising ebay for an upgrade from my Nikon D200.  Just as I was about to close for the evening, I spotted


an advertisement (listing) for a Brand New Nikon D5500 bundle, which includes everything as in kitchen sink and a few 


mouse traps.  Tripods, lens, filters, battery and charger, two teleconverters etc., etc., for only, This is accurate, not a mistake


on my part; $39.99 and FREE Shipping.  Yuppers, I even called ebay, they called me back and we chatted about the listing.


I went ahead and took a chance by purchasing this offering.  The ebay customer rep., assured me that I would get my 


money back if anything should go awry.  I asked, "How would I get my money back if the seller should skip town (country) 


with all the buyers' funds and she reassured me that I would.  I just received notice that my order has shipped and should 


be here by 7/18/19.  I have not received a tracking number yet and would love to see the weight listed if indeed it really was


shipped.  I informed the ebay rep., that the sellers are based in The Netherlands and she informed me that it is common for


sellers in other countries to have warehouses here in the States.  I will certainly keep this post up to date of the events 


transpire.  Moderators, if you feel you need to delete this post, I will certainly understand.  It is just that I feel it is important


to advise members who do shop on ebay of any potentially fraudulent listings.


Thanks very much for your support. :)
