53" cat tree for $15. Too good to be true? [ebay]

Here's the listing.

I'm super suspicious, but I'm curious enough it might be worth losing $15.

Under $15 and free shipping? And they have more than 10? If it was here, I'd think they were stolen.....

That seller has no feedback, either.

I wouldn't trust this at all...

This is most likely a scam. The seller has zero feedback which means that no one received their tree of the 14 already sold. Watch and you will see this account disappear after selling 25+ units of the non-existent cat tree. The photo looks like it's been (badly) cut out of someone else's ad. Don't waste your money.

Yeah, I was thinking either stolen, a scam (e.g. a photo of a cat tree) or something else undesireable - like maybe no screws?

I'm soooooooo tempted though. It would be a great solution to the "no furniture because we're moving overseas but the cat can't get to the window" problem.

The worst I'd be out is $15, and that's unlikely with Paypal's draconian protection of buyers.

I suppose it's worth a shot then. I'm highly skeptical, but who knows? Good luck if you're trying!

I wouldn't do it. Someone that skeezy shouldn't be given (1) your email address, (2) your actual address, (3) your name and (4) definitely not your money.

Hi there, the shipping alone would be at least that much. I once tried to buy a child’s rocking horse that was a great deal, but eBay sent me an email warning me not to purchase because it was a scam.
