    May be real, or simply a phantom deal generating huge numbers of site hits.

    No way of telling either way.

    Wisdom is: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't true.

    It was a third party seller it might have been called that I can't recall. It may just be a con or something. Say here it is advertised for 675 as 'new' but from austria

    Just checked it out. It looks like the same products as LKmedia were selling over the weekend. I bought something - I figured that Amazon's A-Z guarantee would refund me if it wasn't kosher, so I'd got nothing to lose. LKmedia's entire stock has disappeared off Amazon, and Amazon Chat couldn't 'locate' the seller...

    It's a fraud, I think.

    Hmmmm. The feedback rating for the seller is 'just launched'. That in itself should ring alarm bells.

    Exactly. As was LKmedia's - the 'contact jklajlkd392.com for more info' part on the seller's profile is the same, too.

    Yes. And why would the seller want the purchaser to contact them beforehand? Most probably because they want the money sent via Western Union i.e. untraceable.
