Just got done with my occasional browsing of what's for sale at the 'bay. There are two jokers on there asking well over a grand for Sony D50's (one in Canada, one in NYC) and there are all kind of notes on the auction pages about emailing them before you bid. What's up with that? I've never seen that before. Is that some sort of front for a scam or something? That just seems a little strange to me.
