Thank your lucky stars that they did. I don't know how often it
comes up with vintage computer gear, but it happens regularly with
high-priced musical instruments. Some lowlife hijacks an account and
lists an item using either photos from the web (sometime they're
manufacturer's photos) or another auction.
You send your money--and nothing.
