It's the old send you a bigger cheque routine and send me the difference back via Western Union.

Don't waste your time on this individual or hand them any cash.

Hi Colin

These idiots probably picked you up via your ads on hififorsale.com. They regularly try it on with sellers there.

Seems really quite reasonable to me. I've posted you a cheque for half a million and just wondered if you'd give me the difference in cash just before you pay it in. I'll take the D2500 aswell, your car, wife and that jolly nice projector once it's fixed!!!!
Chuck the house in for good measure.

Cheers Paul

It gets better.....eBay has a pair of 8 month old 8000s....a snip at 122......short dated auction, new seller, zero feedback, user ID kept private.......

but the one I like is just down the page from the 8000s.....500 CD player, 562 "control unit for CD player" and theultimate 541 "sauce selector".......

Would Sir prefer Worcester, Tabasco or HP?


Regards,
Chris

Sauce !!!! That is so funny grin

I'm sure the pic of the 8k's has been used before. Look closely at the power lead in the wall socket. Has been obscured, so, suspect it is not the "8 mth old" UK style plug.

Bargain price though, eh !!!

PS Has anyone had any response from the seller of the 8k's yet?

Nick

Hey Guys,

These scams are becoming more and more prevalent of recent, I have been contacted on three occasions within the past 12 days, and twice in December. After checking the senders profiles and feedback, I just pass the eMails on to eBay.

BTW. The 8000's have now disappeared from eBay .... Along with the seller I'll guess.

Do these prospective buyers, who ever they maybe, truly believe that the high value items (such as the 8k's etc.) that are occasionally advertised on eBay, with no reserve, usually no feedback and spurious methods of payment, are genuine auctions.
eBay is no place for the naive.

Rgds .... Holtz'.

Hi, I Bought my 565Z3 from E Bay and I believe I have more that 2% Common sense.
Judge the seller as much as the product.
Dont let Idiots spoil a good system.
The Guy I bought from was as good as gold, we kept in touch by EMail, he had a proper address and was a HiFi Enthusiast with a young family.
Use Common sense which aint so Common it seems.
Cheers and happy bidding, Chris.

Another one!

Brian Frost briany42@yahoo.co.uk

This one is so lazy he can't even be bothered to edit his emails properly. He is telling me that he does not want to haggle any more over the CAR!

Beware all.
