Not from dodo, it was from customer1 (63), but looked like local listing apart from site link.

Yep - the seller had found these, and placed a warning in the seller
comment for people not to buy or bid as they were bogus auctions.

The second lot I CW'd, given that TM couldn't find the first!

Thanks, Amy. Would be better not to allow Romanians on your site though...

No contact from scammers, Foggyone. They know who I am. Wonder if any phishing emails will come later.
