It is reported. I reported to ebay but they did nothing. I was stuck for an hour on the phone between police and ebay.

Well it certainly looks like a dodgy auction, I'm guessing that the scratch on the camera body is how you know its your particular camera.

Shame they have mounted that cheap and nasty lens on it.....Sad

Hope you have a result and get your camera back, Lets also hope they lock the thieving git up as well....Smile

I see the listing has now ended. The good news will be if the thief gets done for this, but bad news is that they may want to keep the camera as evidence until the case comes to court.

i hope it ll be sorted somehow. I spent more than hour today on the phone between ebay and police. It is really difficult to reach someone responsible and knowledgeable. I was being transferred million times and i came back to beginning.

If you have any ideas how to carry on with that case, please advise me, I can't think of what I should do now

you may want to print this:
If you get no-where
Wait until they leave feedback, get the ID of the buyer, contact them and tell them unless they return the camera directly to you and not the seller you will issue immediate county court proceedings for a order to return it or to the value of.
you can get contact details via a e.bay form or by bidding on one of the buyers auctions
this is because you still hold title to the property, the seller has no legal right to sell the property.
If the buyer has paid for property that the seller had no right to sell then that is the buyers hard luck, you can sue for return of the property, the buyer will have to either live with the fact he was conned or try to get his money back.

fortunately this is the Law and if it was not, BIG ben would have been sold millions of times...

Real shame the auction has ended, I would have put a large bid on that to make sure I won it, which would have given me given me an invoice with the guys contact details on it.
