Question Odd EBay Listings - Hardtops

I'm not even sure if I can post this here, but currently there are three hardtops on EBay, ending soon. They are all being sold by a user called aikira-sendoh. Here's the sellers profile - https://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/aikira-sendoh . It seems most odd that they have been a member since 2005, but have no feedback at all and now are suddenly selling three hardtops.
If anyone is bidding, I'd make absolutely sure you were paying by PayPal. It feels a bit fishy to me.

Of course, it may be all above board - but there are a good number of dodgy dealers on EBay.

I Placed a bid on the hardtops, he also has various car parts with real photos which made me think they ‘might’ be genuine. I didn’t win in the end though!

His selling history contains 45 items nearly all car related, all sold since 21 Sept this year.

Yes, I looked at his history. And I freely admit I may be incorrectly inferring something fishy. However three S2K hardtops at the same time? No feedback? And two of the hardtops went for £630 - bit odd they went for the same price, but could be a coincidence I suppose. Or maybe I'm getting a little paranoid, but there are a lot of scams on EBay and Gumtree. I'm just suspicious I guess.

Yeah, not saying either way, but I agree it does look odd, and I'd be v. cautious!

all 3 sold and black one sold for almost twice as much as the yellow and blue...also still no feedback so by now either someone has bargain hardtop or been scammed
