I found this on eBay, (it is a mobile link) http://m.ebay.com/itm/Raspberry-Pi-3-Modelo-B-CPU-de-cuatro-nucleos-1-2-GHz-1-Gb-Ram-Tarjeta-Madre-/182756585444?_trkparms=aid%253D222007%2526algo%253DSIM.MBE%2526ao%253D1%2526asc%253D20150519202348%2526meid%253D35c1dcf2acad4d62a99b87ce2cbf9239%2526pid%253D100408%2526rk%253D1%2526rkt%253D25%2526sd%253D232483493154&_trksid=p2056116.c100408.m2460
This has got to be to good to be true. Any ideas?

scam. They sell expensive items at a low price, you buy, they put a fake tracking number and ebay pays them their money. Old trick that never seems to die. Alternatively, it could be stolen and he's trying to get rid of it, but I believe it's the former.

Ebay does not pay the money to new sellers until after tracking number shows it's been delivered, or buyer gives the transaction positive feedback, or 21 days pass from date that it was shipped.
Also it doesn't seem like it's stolen as he has more than 10 available.
But it does seem too good to be true, free shipping from spain. He's probably trying to pull a scam but he won't get his money due to what i said above, and all the buyers will get their money back. I wouldn't buy from a seller with only 2 feedback anyways.

I haven't kept up with the Pi since I bought my daughter one a couple of years ago, is this old hardware that will not be as attractive to buyers as the latest thing?
The low feedback count and seemingly great deal are suspicious, the only legit scenario I can think of is that the seller might be hoping you buy a screen, sensor, case, or some other Pi accessory from him at a more profitable price. I didn't bother to check if they had other auctions...

This one has reviews, but is also from Spain. http://m.ebay.com/itm/Raspberry-Pi-3-Model-B-Quad-Core-1-2GHz-64bit-CPU-1GB-RAM-WiFi-Bluetooth-4-1-/302448553702?_trkparms=aid%253D222007%2526algo%253DSIM.MBE%2526ao%253D1%2526asc%253D20150519202348%2526meid%253D840e210ad28740dcb4da2b984966cb57%2526pid%253D100408%2526rk%253D1%2526rkt%253D25%2526sd%253D182756585444&_trksid=p2056116.c100408.m2460
I am so tempted to just buy it but I think y'all are right that it is a scam.

That listing is a bit strange, says the item is in Valencia but then the free shipping line says it is from the Far East.
Seller has flawless reviews on over 300 sales, though, so I'd guess that you'd get your item OK. They didn't have any other auctions up, but I still wonder if they'd offer you Pi accessories "off eBay" if you went ahead with the purchase...easy to just say no!

You need to LEARN how to shorten your links....
delete everything after the question mark, including the ? itself.

It turns out that it was a scam but i got my money refunded. Someone hacked a seller account and was trying to scam people.

If you want to pay the shipping I will send you my Raspberry Pi. I used it briefly. It has the plastic case and a good quality USB 5V power supply.
