|Remember the "Fee avoidance guy"|

Well, he's back with a new stragegy. He shows two calculators and even quotes shipping on the 2nd implying that he will sell the 2nd one off of ebay.
He is also likely counting on someone thinking two are for auction. He lists both serial numbers.

Must have been an error, or he changed his mind. When I looked, there was information on only one calculator. Description has been changed several times.
|Yes, he changed it|

I think he is someone who comes here. I received a nasty (read: filthy and physically threatening) gram shortly after posting this here.
He sent two emails. One threatening and one using his normal ebay email address.
I guess he forgot that his IP was recorded for the originator. Both IPs were identical. I'm still debating whether or not to send the threat email to ebay and the police. His IP is easily traced.
Yes, he changed the auction. I asked him why he was listing both shipping prices and that it looked like he was trying to sell both with one auction. So, he changed the auction.
This is the same guy that sold two phones for $10 and tried to charge $110 for shipping a telephone.
Watch the other show up later.

Yes, you should report him. I certainly would.
