Won a new Celestron Quantum 100ED refractor scope on ebay, was really stoked to try it as there are no reviews as of yet. However, a few days later my payment was refunded and the excuse given "we just ran out of stock because ebay doesn't allow us to update our quanitites in real time." They received negative feedback for this exact same issue in the past. buyer beware...

Don't know what their game would be doing this unless they wanted to switch you to a higher priced scope once they had you baited and stoked. Be grateful you got your money refunded, most eBay scammers take the money and run.
