Not sure if this has been mentioned here yet, but I just sold a frame on Ebay and within hours of the auction closing, the next few bidders that did not win the auction received "2nd chance offers" to buy my frame for their high bid. Fortunately a few bidders Emailed me to verify:

SCAM SCAM SCAM - I sent no 2nd chance ofers.

Be Careful!

"Dear punxsutawneyphil,

Dear punxsutawneyphil, You expressed interest in an item titled "2004 Titus Racer-X 100 size XL - As close to BRAND NEW."

In compliance with eBay policy, the seller of that item is making this Second Chance Offer to you at your bid price of US $1324.

cool info....tip off is the no return email...
This one definitely looks like a scam but Ebay does allow second chance offers. They are worded differently and you don't contact the seller directly.
