    If dual link config is used, wouldn't it be better to just get another HBA?

    Agreed this has some good indicators of a scam, although it's certainly more convincing than most of them. The price itself isn't totally unreasonable as we were able to get these in quantity 18 months ago for ~$60, but everything else about the listing is fishy.

    Ebay intervened, orders canceled, refunds issued.

    Can say it comes as a surprise.

    I could really smell it on this one (way too good to be true) ;)
    Int. shipping from US isn't that cheap so $50 - shipping fee = ?? is what it was selling for.
    Too suspicious.

    I called ebay when the seller's sold count went over the available count. I was able to cancel the Paypal transaction. I reported the seller and within 12 hours, I got a response from ebay.
