    I think several people got ripped on stoves today on eBay. Corn boiler, Bixby and Avalon Stoves were sold, but I don't think the lister was selling the items.I have seen this before. All were sold without mnimiums, started at $.99. Avalon sold for $760. Aqua-therm boiler for $11. Bixby brought $1,776.00. If you bought a stove today, check with eBay before you pay. I have seen this before over a month someone got away with selling the same stove six times using different ID's. Original listings just didn't seem right for heavy heaters being sold from Las Vegas, Nevada. If I am wrong I apologize to the seller and congradulate those who got great deals on Stove furnaces and a host of other items.

    The seller has sold 400 items since 2000. That's a long time to build a reputation and want to squander it in a day.

    Matt and withholding his judgement.

    The $ sign at the end of the price tells ya its a spoof auction from someone overseas that hijacked a reputable users account.

    Sorry, incomplete thought. Last Spring I saw the same stove sold by someone who stole several seller ID's and listed a set number of items with a Buy-It-Now value, but told buyers to email him before bidding. The stove sold six times. It was listed all over the country, but the pictures and description were identical.

    It is interesting. Desert means no wood, no big trees and almost no grass. Looks like one of the picks has a row of Taylor poplars in the background. Maybe these are all cactus burners, or transplant Palms. Must cost a fortune to truck in splits.
