This is a model I’ve been following because I have it but not exactly attached to it. I wasn’t going to sell it for $200 but lately it keeps going up. I listed last night after the first auction ended with a starting bid of $299 or you could send an offer. I got an offer for $400 and accepted it.

This is a situation where I fully believe people just put in a ridiculous bid because they really want it but don’t expect someone else to also use the same tactic. At the end, they’re not going to pay and it hurts the seller. I have now sold mine to one of the legitimate buyers thus reducing his potential pool when he inevitably has to relist.
I was in touch with the seller of that model and you would never believe this but it was being bid on by the same person who tried to scam me and two other member here selling that exact same plane. He has also tried it with several Gemini dealers. It was the reason I started the thread and posted his name as an alert to block him. I also contacted the Cleveland Police dept and they now have a case number. The guy has a real problem and his method of operation is exactly the same every time. It seems he is fascinated with the JetBlue blueprint plane.
Here is the thread:
