Beware of Common eBay Scam - Galaxy S8+ 64GB Deal on eBay

To the ozbargain family,
Just checking in to let you know of an ongoing scam -
https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Brand-New-SAMSUNG-GALAXY-S8-PLUS...
I purchased an S8+ 64GB on the 4th of November. Immediately alarm bells started ringing.
Seller claims to be based from Melbourne on the listing - yet provided a sketchy looking tracking number from Hong Kong that hasn’t been updated since it was provided.
Seller will also no longer respond to my messages since my original message asking for a tracking number on the 5th of November.
Long story short, I realized I’m not receiving the item.
I can't leave feedback for him yet - my eBay account is still new.
To all my fellow ozbargainers - don't be an idiot like me and fall for this scam.
