    I know a lot of folks around here use Amazon Marketplace. I just got snookered by one of these fraudulent sellers (dealing in books) so felt like warning my music junkie peers about the warning signs. That really good deal on a rare item may be phony:

    Wow, I'm pretty sure I saw one of these hacked accounts. I was looking for an out-of-print item (I've forgotten what it was now, either a book or a CD) a couple of days ago, and one seller had it listed for much less than anyone else, at the odd amount of $9.69. I was about to pull the trigger when I glanced at some of the other items he had listed, and every one of them was priced at the same amount. I figured it had to be some sort of scam and moved on, and didn't think about it again until I saw this thread.
