Both look OK in isolation but the slight similarity in description jar slightly. Fair concern or a little paranoia?

Hmmm ...

Both have sold a 3500B in the past looking at feedback so that part of the story rings true. One has 100% feedback but only puts up a stock photo, the other has 99.3%, lots of pictures and seems to sell branded products such as Diesel, Nike and Ted Baker - which, I believe, are sometimes copied ...

In either case I would ask for some pictures taken with a newspaper close in the background to check that these items are genuine. Maybe overcautious but 150 is a fair amount of money to risk. Not keen on ana/digi anyway!
