Please be extremely cautious with "second offers" as the majority of them are scams - people see who the highest bidders were on big ticket items and then send them spoofed emails dressed up to look like second offer. You need to ensure that the "email" is in your ebay account when you log in and the details of the sender match the details of the seller. Also you need to be very cautious if the seller asks for payment via western union. I had a friend who was very badly burned by this.
