Very common scam on the bay, getting buyers to send money to an email address. Sometimes there are dozens of listings, all nearly identical like this.

Best thing to do is report them for trying to sell outside of EBay and avoid EBay fees.

Losing money (fees) is EBay's biggest concern and will get their attention right away.

The obvious signs are:

price too good to be true

instructions not to use eBay email

no relation to the sellers usual sales

this particular scammer had multiple items, high end bikes and other stuff, and had hacked at least 3 sellers in one week. eBay has got a lot slower at removing this kind of thing.
