Well, I think we dealt with this exact scammer a few months ago. And it appears they are back.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Brand-New-Conn-62HG-Greenhoe-Bass-Trombone-/222580916799?hash=item33d2db423f:i:222580916799

I think this listing is identical to the last, picture, description, and all.

Steer very wide clear of everything this guy is selling.

They're hacked accounts. 

I've reported some of these today from that same "seller" but eBay is a little slow to remove them.

It has been removed.

eBay can be hacked and altered to that degree ?

All you need is someone's password to pull this scam.  Any time an auction says "contact me before bidding" it's a scam.

eBay has software to detect if someone is trying to embed an email address in a listing, so when you see one like these the email address is always an image rather than text.
