Well, they only say 'no', plus a whole load of expletives, but if you don't mind the risk of getting onto their list of 'blocked bidders' then you won't lose anything by trying
There were a pair of used RL monks on ebay last week, described as EG when they were most likely C&J. The seller admitted that this might be true but let the auction stand and was won by someone for over 200 smackers. I had made an offer (solicited by the seller) that reflected it's C&J'ness which was obviously much lower than the final selling price.
