    He ships only to Germany.

    I asked him about shipping to different country from Germany inside EU.

    I am waiting for the answer.

    This has to be a scam, right?

    I am not sure - they are in the business, the same model was cheaply available somewhere else too...

    I just saw its Ebay Plus covered, so even free returns - I'll take one (two actually) for the team and give it a try;)

    No answer from the seller :( If it is not a scam, I will ask one of my friend in Germany to purchase 1 CPU, and if there is no brick inside in the arrived box, I will be happy.

    I am looking for my new server build @ home (currently in planning state), a new, long term cpu.

    Thats true - but worst that can happen is that I have to send them back (for free since thats covered by Ebay Plus) ;)

    Thanks!

    And if I order something from China, or US, I have to pay customs, too.

    You might want to hurry up, i dropped them a msg to clarify.

    So worst case is that they realize their mistake and correct pricing..
    Or more likely they don't react at all;)

    OK, I have got answer.

    They can not ship to Hungary.

    This is the address of the company:

    Via Giovanni Amendola, 33, 20037 Paderno Dugnano MI, Italy

    They have German and Italian Tax ID, perhaps this could be some trick of taxing, i do not know. :(

    I do not understand the ban of other EU countries.

    And what about the Product itself? Did they say anything about that?

    To correct myself - this is not *Plus* covered, that was a fancy new advertisement that Ebay puts on the payment processing pages.

    So worst case is I have to pay for returns myself (and can get that reimbursed by Paypal up to €25) ;)
    Seller claims no returns but o/c thats against consumer protection laws in Germany;)

    I would not buy. Wrong picture suggests the seller has no idea what he is doing and will be trouble with refund/returns should the item be defective (wrong picture suggests he couldn't tell if defective). Or it suggests a scam. I've been bitten before, going with the text rather than the image. Also Italy, good luck filing or even finding a fraudster in that country. We have a cat and if anything is remotely fishy about her food, she will leave it completely and will not bite. I find myself doing the same with such online deals.
