What a shame, that would fit in my garage nicely :-(

Link: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Proteo-TL15-5-Axis-CNC-Lathe-/150705510055?p

I am 99.9% sure it is a scam having exchanged emails with the "seller", the informative photos that are not on ebay are ones from a previous advert, the plotter is the same story.

Any policemen want to take it up? as I am sure ebay are not going to !!

So what is the scam then?

The listing has been removed....what was the scam all about?

It was a 5-axis CNC lathe for 2000 buyitnow. Seller has no feedback and had only listed and sold one item prior to that.
Too good to be true perhaps?

Lee: Two emails form a yahoo account, neither gave me a name or location or answer to any of my questions... the photos that were sent I found elsewhere.
