Hmm,

The 1D has a output of 4.06 million effective.

Not bad, but if it's in the US, so the customs in the UK might pinch a fair amount off you  Sad

Beware E-bay - a large number of scams on digital cameras have been reported on dpreview and elsewhere.

Dmitry,

My guess is the price was low, someone either tried to contact the seller and their contact info was bogus, or the contact info was similar to other scammers.

There was a Nikon D-100 with a buy it now price of $1,495 the other day, I called to find out about it and it was a lie. I didn't notify eBay but the next day the listing was gone.

General rule of thumb: if it's too good to be true, it probably is not true.

eBay tries to keep/get a reputation of being reputable and trustworthy VIR.
Removing scams helps in that.

There were also scams where people were suckered into paying huge amounts on non-existent cameras. Only when reading very carefully did you notice that the auction was not for a camera at all but for "information on how to get one". All the people got for their $5000 (instead of the D1x they thought they'd bought) was a dealerlist...
