I'm with Scosgt on this. I just checked the "brand new sellers" profile. Just created , no feedback ,no record at all. I wish you luck , but I would contact Amazon if I were you. That's 40% less than anywhere else. Mike

conformation is coming from amazon, and you pay amazon. i am a member so i am covered by amazon policy. amazon is promoting it. so explain your comment.

And that didn't set off any alarms when you read that part??? A well known scam setup.

Good luck!

Very likely the seller will just take the money and disappear. Amazon will eat the money, you will get a refund. But why out yourself through that?
No one sells that scanner for that money.

Total scam. I hope you didn't bite on it.
You could be in for a serious case of having your identity stolen if you did.

You may be covered by Amazon and you will get a refund. Although it appears to be coming from Amazon, the confirmation, the ad and the tracking info is all fake.

However, the scammer will have your personal information (name, address, etc.).

It's called a phishing scam. The scammer is simply trying to get you to take the bait and respond to the ridiculously low priced item.

If you did make a transaction, be sure to keep a close eye on your bank accounts, checking, etc.

trx-1 scam on amazon

another thing thats funny is if you go to their store everything is priced at 300.00 to 400.00 dollars. when they asked me to buy a amazon gift card that woke me up. been waiting along time to get a trx-1, guess i'll have to wait a while longer.

Amazon really sucks for allowing this to happen.

There are fake ads like this all over their site. That's one reason I don't shop on Amazon.

I'm happy for you that you sensed something was wrong.

Glad you decided to contact Amazon, and that you came out ok. If nothing else you may have helped somebody else out, and put a stop to these criminals. That's all they are too, low life's. I will say that the Ham Station price is really good! And that IS a very reputable dealer. Mike

You would have REALLY been screwed. You buy the gift card and send it to someone, you are NOT getting a refund from Amazon. If the card is cashed, they have fulfilled their legal obligations.
If you don't receive merchandise, you have a claim. If you receive what you paid for (gift card) and give it to someone, that is your problem.
You could possibly prevail in Court because Amazon hosted the scam, but good luck with that.
