is it just me or is there a guy on ebay charging 3,000 for a repro saying it is the real thing for air raid?

i say this because i have 2 air raid repros that are the same thing as that one.  any thoughts?

I don’t think he specifically says it is real if I recall the listing right.  He doesn’t say it’s not either. Deliberately trying to be deceptive.

I messaged the seller and they said.. is it really fake? I just bought it off someone for 300. Then proceeded to send me an offer to buy it for 250.00

This one?

Yeah, he never claims anywhere in the listing that it's real and it's a pretty obvious fake. I'm sure that'll play into his defense when he inevitably gets reported for selling a counterfeit. He could've at least spray painted it blue and glued a PVC t-handle to it...

Wow that is so dumb... that it's in a first party 2600 shell and has Atari style labels shows it as a fake.

I suppose the seller is just testing the amount of idiocy out there.

I saw this, and thought "Wow. Someone could actually be fooled by this if they have no idea about Atari stuff." i guess that's what the seller is banking on.

I sent a couple of messages to the seller, with links and photos to prove it's a repro and instead of replying, he sent 2 offers. The first was  $2,000 and when I told him he was crazy, he sent a second offer, $500. He knows what he has isn't worth anything.  He's just a trying to sucker someone who doesn't know any better.

Should report him really.

I'm guessing someone has by now, but it's up to eBay to follow through and I don't see that happening. I just hope anyone considering buying it has the sense to do their research first.
