Are These Deals Legit?

I haven't used Ebay that much, so not sure how legit these deals are. The guy seems to have a decent number of feedbacks, but unsure if he's selling fake ones.

The Herman Miller Aeron was still available for purchase and had 10 stocks available yesterday. I woke up this morning to find that it's sold out. However, if you look at the purchase history, only 3 stocks were sold. Not sure what happened to the other 7 stocks?

And looking at the eBay Money Back Guarantee policy, it seems that if you haven't received the item, you could claim for a refund and Ebay should sort that for you. In addition to that, you can do a credit chargeback through your bank. So I'm somewhat willing to risk a gamble here, but still unsure.

Can someone confirm if OK or share their thoughts?

    If its seems to good to be true it probably is. They are trying to scam Paypal or the like I suspect. Even if the Aerons were second hand they are not that cheap. New. No way as they retail in AUS for at least $1200-1599 new. 100% sure fake. Assuming you receive it. IMO.

      Yeah, that's what I thought. I've done my fair bit of research on the Aerons and they are mostly expensive.

      I did however live in Taiwan for a while and found some amazing deals. I remember buying the iPhone 5s when it first came out for like $500 NZD. Back then, it was at least $1000 NZD. Still have the 5s to this day and verified the serial against the serial checker on Apple's site. It's still working mint. So sometimes I wonder if these deals are scams or just an unicorn bargain deal.

        Well for the price you could try. If you don't get it paypal dispute of CB on credit. The seller obviously has some reasonable items for sale.

    come on, its way too cheap

    One of the ways scammers can get away with your $$$ is by shipping empty parcels to you (ebay sees that the shipment is delivered and won't refund your money). Happened to my friend once when he purchased an item with a price that is too good to be true.

      Thanks guys, I would have never guessed. I guess I'll just have to save up and buy one from a legit reseler then.
