There's a lot of bogus listings today. I reported half a dozen of them this morning.

All modernish hard to get safety razors. A Jürgen Hempel handle. All listed by sellers with zero feedback in China.

Descriptions look like copies of real listings. 
Prices are 10 - 20% of going rates.

Beware!

Looks too good to be true and it probably is.

A couple Webers and 2011 R41 razors. 

Seems oddly specific items and each listing is from a different account. All are free shipping from China. Probably a scam brothers.

This one time I got overwhelmed by the price of Ultrasonic Alpha on evil Bay. This guy was selling it dirt cheap and I immediately pulled the trigger on it without realizing that it could be a scam.

Few days later, the seller started behaving strangely and gave me some bogus shipping number. I sprung into action and contacted evil Bay for the order. Listing was removed and I got a full refund.

A month later, a parcel arrived from China with a cheap plastic bead necklace worth 50 cents.

Thugs!

Thankfully buyer protection is quite adequate using eBay / PayPal.

Not sure, but this one seems a bit strange:

Asylum Rx for $27.90, "Buy Now".  Seller says long delivery...and doesn't have any positive feed back points.

ModEdit; Thank you, but live links to actions isn't really allowed

You'll need to be a member to report it, as far as I understand, but feel free to tattle on obvious scams and knock-offs to eBay. Hopefully they'll do something about it...

So I'm having my morning coffee and looking at what sold on eBay recently and saw this. Very instructive screen shot.
