A Cwejman S1 MKI advertised on Ebay, new, for 300 British pounds! Is anyone familiar with this? The same seller is listing a Moog Voyager and Korg Triton for the same prices.

Those prices were silly. A scam for sure.

It's a scam. That picture is the EXACT same as the one listed on the auction below (reserve not met) from a legit seller. Scammer probably lifted the picture from the auction being I was the one who originally posted the below link to the auction here on electro-music.

lately, a whole lot of synth scams have appeared on ebay.

all offered from China, rare & collectible synths, low starting bids, all offered from new ebayers with zero feeedback. All ripped pics from previously closed auctions

the word 'scam' is almost stamped on these offers.

How many cwejman synths are there around in china ?

This sort of thing has been happening for a while on ebay Well since i've been trading- about 5 years or so.

Leica cameras (and their collectors) are another popular target. I'm surprised synthesizers haven't been targeted earlier- but then there was always the S.O.S. "hi- I'd love to buy your casiotone- will you accept £5000 that a client in London still owes me, and pay me the difference via Western Union?' scam. I've had quite a few of these in the past.
