Beware of SCAM

Recommended Posts

This rig in the Classifieds seems suspicious:

http://www.dropzone.com/cgi-bin/classifieds/page.cgi?g=Detailed%2FContainers%2FBrand_New_Fully_Loaded_V310_Micron_Zero_Jumps__169366.html;d=1

I emailed the seller asking for info on the rig and he refuses to send serial number. The post does not include Serial Number.
The user is registered since 2011 but who knows. Just be aware.
See attachment for the seller reply to my inquire.
I already reported it that it might be a scam.

Registered since 2011, but no posts and an empty profile.

Also a "too good to be true" price.

I don't know if it's a scam or not.

But I'd be suspicious.
And I'd be damned sure to protect myself if I went after it.

Escrow through a trusted 3rd party for sure.
If he wasn't willing to do that, then I'd walk.

I responded to the ad in December and did not get a reply. The seller contacted me last week to say that the previous buyer he had been dealing with had fallen through and to see if I still had any interest.

The email was not pushy and he detailed size and that he was original owner.

I don't have a dog in this fight but in my opinion if he were a scammer mining this site for cash he would've responded to any/all that were interested back in December.

The seller did the same thing with me, he replied to say the previous buyer had fallen through and if I was still interested. He probably responded to everyone but people walked away because he is not sharing serial number. That is a big red flag
