    I don't know what's up with the deal but I just bought a pair of new Forma Adventure Low boots (size 13 US) for $15.79 - shipped - on eBay. No, they're not Sidi's but dang...$15.79? I bought them as much as anything to see if they show up! They ARE coming from China - will they be fake Forma boots? Will they have listening devices inside? Who knows? But I thought I'd let folks know about the deal. I searched ADV motorcycle boots and found them.

    It makes you wonder what the point of the scam is? Is it maybe that folks forget to get the refund? I'm surprised eBay allows it - well, not really.

    Here we go again.

    You're not getting any boots.

    The seller will get your $15, eBay/PayPal will refund it because you'll get a shipment notification with a delivery date in six or eight weeks, but they'll never actually ship anything.

    By the time they they do that, the fake seller will have liquidated, so eBay won't get their money back.
