Any time you see a usually expensive item priced WAY BELOW market value with a note to contact them via email (usually a gmail account) is a scam. These are legitimate eBay accounts that were phished.

it's a scam whenever you see a listing with an image file instead of standard text containing an email asking you to contact them outside ebay.

I'd buy jx-3p's for $150 all day every day. but: odd sales pitch how you can "hook it up into your pc and make beats"

errrrrr.....um......kind of..... but not really.......errrrrrr......no. someone here should buy it just for the sake of another hooligan not using it as a midi controller.

Another thing you will usually see is a lot of high end synths all in a row listed right after each other with the same price and to contact the seller through e-mail. It will be like DX1 - $1800, Mini - $1800, P5 - $1800 and so on and so on.
