Default Sprint clean ESN GSM works in europe?

I'm from italy and currently interested in buying the said cell, while trying to find a good price for the gsm version of the evo3d i stumbled across some actions pretending to sell a gsm/sprint version. The version is labled as "sprint clean esn. Finding it a bit weird id really love to know if the cell is actually going to work for me in italy of if it's just a scam.

According to the seller of the action (which i can't link having <8 posts) the specifics are :

I've also found on the italian ebay actuion for the same cell, according to the auctioner :

"It's a sprint clean esn, without contract you can put any sim. It doesnt have locks nor anything else" He also pretends the cell is actually working from him.

So the big question is : are those cells going to work in italy or it's just a scam?

Total scam.

Sprint's Evo 3D uses a CDMA radio - doesn't even have a GSM radio you can access.

I don't know how Amazon works in Europe, only that it does in many places, so please see this post for a possible option that will work for you, or at least give you other ideas -

Yeah that's pretty much I thought, however seeing so many auction pretending the cell to be gsm :

NEW CLEAN ESN HTC EVO 3D Sprint APX515CKT 8GB FREE CHAR | eBay

HTC EVO 3D Nuovo, garanzia 24 mesi - ULTIMO STOCK | eBay

I really wanted to ask to make sure.
Thanks for saving me from the scam!
