It has been said that this is about trafficking in children that it is all in code.  Notice the buy it now price of 50,000.00.

So first do you think that could be rue?

Second are there any members of ebay austrailia here who can report this auction?  It is definitely up to no good....

And yes it is an active ebay auction.

No that is an opening bid.  The buy it now is 50,000.00 and there is very likely a very high reserve...

I didn't either. How did you find this out Survivor?

You can only report it if you are an Australian user?

It was posted in another group and I asked to post it here in hopes of getting an aussie mum to report it.  I think I found one to do that already though.

The code was stated to a friend on another site by someone who claimed to have done work for paypal

The story is that they phish these accounts and use codes

I think that being a member of ebay australia is necessary but I am unsure I wasnt seeming to be able to sign in but perhaps it was user error?

I've never been an ebay user...

Sounds terrible. Regardless of what it is--selling a sharpener for that money is very fishy.

I reported it... I hope it's a fake listing, but there is some stuff about it on the internet.
