I am sure that many, especially time-nuts, will be grateful.  Of course, yixunhk's HP-equipment rebirthing scams are not confined to the HP 58503A/B models - but your reporting to eBay should nevertheless also help expose yixunhk's other scams.

Thank you Peter.

I find it odd that so many time-nuts appear to be aware of this scam,
but have done little or nothing about it.

I don't know if this is a "British thing" to want to report such
practices, but we do have a few TV programs where reporters have
exposed scammers. e.g.

"Coyboy Builders"

"You've Been Scammed"

In contrast, it seems many time-nuts are aware yixunhk is selling
counterfeit items, several have fallen victim to it, but few if any
have done done anything about it. I find that quite strange myself.
