Could you be more specific? Which part makes you question that is listed there?

Is it that the first several don't list the price?

Must have been removed. The only ones I see used are over $1,000.

Yes, something seems wrong. I think part of it is they want to use amazon to advertise the sale but then do the transaction off amazon (directly to you) that way they don't pay amazon any money. I've seen that done on ebay as well.

But it could also be a scam on you (and not amazon.)

lol click the link in my first post... then look to the right of the pic of the camera... see where it says new and used starting at $5.00 click that link and look at like the 8th ad down....

but by this time its not that important that you see the ads... i think you've already figured out the scam... lol

Thanks!
