I doubt it’s coming. probably phishing for customer info but nothing to lose right?

Every listing by this seller is 12 cents. It's a scam.

At 12 cents it's not a very lucrative scam

In terms of actual money, it isn't. But maybe in terms of a valid address, phone number, and maybe other personal information like a credit card number, maybe it is.

I have no idea how selling on amazon works, but I have to think there has to be a catch to make it worth doing, especially when it's so obviously a fake.

Falls into the category of "too good to be true", which likely means identity theft situation. They could've at least tried something like 60% off to be less obvious.

Re: 15 cent bruticus on amazon.com

This is not real and I advise people not to fall for it. There are Ebay listings with this same figure that turned out to be fake (they didn't cost 12 cents, but the price was too good to be true and the seller was quite new and based in China). I ended up buying one a while back and received nothing.

The Pocket Toys Bruticus figure in this Amazon listing actually costs between $80-$100 CAD.
