Default Flickr...Model scam going around?

I was recently contacted by a DAC member who on occasion posts photos of his collection on the image hosting service Flickr. Recently he was contacted by someone on that site who wanted to buy seven models (all same airline, all 200 scale) and was offered $700.00 apiece for a total of $4900.00 He asked me if I thought this was legit?

I said absolutely not that this has to be a scam to get his banking information.

I googled flickr scams and saw a few where individuals wanted to buy the rights to the photo but not the item posted in the picture. I know that several members here use flickr for posting pics and was wondering if anyone else has heard of any similar offers to purchase??

None of my models would be worth that much. I would definitely smell a rat.
