    Yes, I purchased it through ebay and he has stolen pictures, description, etc.

    Should I be worried, it already has 6 bids on it?

    I saw that listing too, as well as some of his others from the past. Has anyone ever contacted him before bidding? If so, what does he try to do? My guess is he offers to sell the horn outside of Ebay and asks for payment through Western Union or by certified check. "Contact before bidding" is definitely a sign of a scam.
