The following auction on bitmit.net looks a lot like a scam:

See my reddit post describing why I think this is the case here: http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/pbpxs/bitcoin_mining_rig_4_sale_15ghash/c3o4lni

FYI I have made a bid of 245 BTC, to deter anyone else from bidding on it.

My bid has been registered as 100.07 BTC apparently. That's probably the minimum required bid to win the auction, and I will overbid anyone until it reaches 245 BTC.
Luckily it seems no one has fallen for it yet. But it would be nice to get a response from bitmit. I've contacted them just now through the form on their website.
