    To good to be true - Scam, stolen gear or refurbished??

    Stumbled across a listing in the Trading Post for a D3x for $2,999
    While shown as a private Melbourne listing, it is really from an online 'shop'- AffordablePhotoCamera.com based in the US.
    Price seems waaay too good to be true, even for grey market items.

    D700 for $900 USD. 5DII for $1299 USD .......Hmmmm Is it a rat I smell?

    Same old same old scams that are everywhere and totally unbelievable.

    The one advertised at the linked address has been there for weeks and the site owners simply don't remove them.

    Mind you, I am sure there are plenty the same on fleabay as well but people still seem to use that shocking site as well.
