I doubt anyone here would buy given the warning flags on this Black Paint M2 and Summilux:

eBay item number:142371655275

Leica M2 black paint with Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 black paint.

The Summilux was reported stolen in London last year with a Crime Number:

I have reported to the Metropolitan Police but the item remains on the auction site two days later with a buy it now. E-bay will not allow a stolen item report other than from official sources.

If this would be better posted elsewhere please move accordingly.

you should probably inform the people it belonged to.

I have no contact details other than the name in the AP article, the police are aware and said they would follow up. I was concerned it was still listed, I gave full e-bay details to them.

Still there and the seller has a 100% positive feedback.

It is a very late black M2. I have this one in my archives, but without any information. The vulcanite on the back has been replaced.

The price is extremely low (the lens included); of course that is suspect.

If you dig down the seller was active selling some nice gear but all now "over 12 months ago" if you try and find some old sold items they are not there, I think over 12 months means a ling time ago if not on ebay archive, member since 03 so very possible. Las 12 months small purchases only no sales.
Would you pay 15,000 against those pictures?

hm... would be funny if the other guy who keep asking about buying gears on this forum starts asking if he should buy this one or not :D

Good Looking out. It appears only law enforcement can report an ebay listing as 'stolen'.

Has all the danger signs. (Look at location of seller, location of item, etc etc). Wouldn't touch it with a bargepole.

Yes there are quite a few exotic Leica items all listed by the same seller. It seems to good to be true.

Too cheap a price for what it appears to be and you're being directed away from ebay to actually make the purchase, not good signs.
As well, I looked at a few other listings from the seller and every one was priced at 1500USD...

Don't forget the big red flag of having listed several thousand items for sale in the past few days, despite having accumulated barely over 1000 sales over the past few years.

Hacked account for sure. Many many different items, all refer to external website where you provide the details for your scam eBay invoice delivery.

The camera itself seems to be restored by Leitz, it certainly is not in an original state.

In the past I have seen many offers like this -scam- but they are back, it seems.
