It's a scam for sure. You'll get your money back, but the seller will probably make a few grand and withdraw it before ebay catches on and refunds everyone.

What the heck? Way cheaper than what I've seen so far, closest is $155. Unfortunately, these are probably factory rejects or some kind of scam. Even for a Chinese engine, these are far too cheap for comfort :D

If anyone actually buys one, please let us know!!!

I wish you luck. You rolled the dice on two
Did your receipt say you were charged $16.99 each?
Can't wait to find out what happens.

It is a scam. I posted a reply to something similar on how to spot this. Look at the feedback; all within the last 6 months and all private items. I bet it was like $0.01 items to boost his feedback to 100+ and then start the scam. I bet this person or group has literally hundreds of these accounts. You will get your money back eventually or you can ask eBay now. It is all about the delivery window for eBay, which is gonna be long for China. Live and learn; I buy like 80% of my sh*t from eBay.

Think about it, nothing is free. Even by Chinese standards how much cost to ship across the pacific? $16.99?

I was charged $33.98 with tax for two. I can afford to lose that in a gamble. I don't understand why ebay isn't wise to this if it's a scam but I am sure they will have to reimburse me if it is.
