In the too good to be true category: (ie. Something's amiss here!)

NEW Polk gear for sale CHEAP!! All items are listed in quantities of "More than 10" and with FREE shipping!

LSiM704c - $22.00
LSiM703 - $29.00
LSiM706c - $24.00
DSWPro440wi - $23.00
Atrium5 (Pair) - $19.00
PSW110 - $17.00
Etc., etc.

All items were listed within the past few hours. They are listed as "New", then in the description, they copied and pasted Polk's "Refurbished" listings.

Some daring soul want to give it a try and report back?

    You'd have to be more than just an optimist to think that's for real. The guy never sold anything before, and suddenly has unlimited quantities of Polk products....

    I don't know if it was him, but if you look at the item history for the LsiM center, someone bought 10, and then bought 40 more.

    Man I just woke up from a beer nap and got some ebay emails. Apparently this was a scam and the users account was hacked, can you believe that?

    Taken from a recent Audioholics reply regarding "Club Polk" and Polk speakers:
    "I'm yet to hear a Polk speaker that merits more than a sentence and 60 seconds discussion." :\
    My response is: If you need 60 seconds to respond in one sentence, you probably should't be evaluating Polk speakers.....
