Is this as dodgy as it looks?

Hi all, this paperweight is listed again with a really high first bid and payment only by direct money transfer. Looks odd to me ! eBay listing:

Every July this very rare antique Baccarat paperweight shows up on ebay France. This has been going on now for four maybe five years. Last year I was the top bidder. Seller refused to accept paypal even if I paid the fees and the seller refused to have a friend come with cash and pick it up in person. Seller only wants wired funds. Bidders beware.

Oh yeah. I also asked the seller for a picture of the weight on top of "today's" newspaper. No picture received so far.
