Well spotted Jase. I know some people copy photos for various reasons, but the seller has no excuse for using the same description. Definite scam IMO. Have you reported it?

I believe the one in UK is the scammer. As you say, it's not only the pic but the info as well. I base this on that the one in UK was added later the same day and he only copied one picture.

Yeah just checked that link:

"This listing was ended by the seller because the item is no longer available."

Well spotted Jase. +1

Great result Jase! Very Happy Points on their way.
At least that has saved somone from being ripped off & having the hastle of claiming a refund. We can only hope the seller will have the sense not to try pulling a trick like that again.
