Is it possible at all...

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Don't you love the topic, gotta click to see whats goin' on. I'm good. But anywho, is it possible to cheat the system?

Example: <a href=""; target="_blank"></a>;

Its a 'new' 667 GA PB = 500 bucks. I'm not looking to buy it, well if it could get a computer out of it... Anywho I've seen these online everywhere. HUGE deals on apple computers. There is the 200+ post at Macnn on a shady computer company. There was a small one here. But Wow I'm rambing. Yeah This guy says he is going to do escrow only. I mean I SO WANT TO BELIVE THAT this is possible. But i KNOW its not I just wantto know what everyoe thinks about this. And PLEASE don't use 'if it sounds to good to be true...' Even if it still applies. So yeah Type away..

    If I were you, I'd go for it. $230, sweet. Unless he wants to get his ass sued, put in a bid at the last possible minute for like $235.

    Escrow is where there's a middleman who makes sure both sides get what they require for the deal to take place ie I send my money to 'mr. escrow', you send your laptop, and he sends the cash to you and the laptop to me. Whereupon I laugh maniacally at having gotten a 667 mhz G4 Ti for $235.

    That has scam all over it

    I tried to buy my powerbook 667 over ubid (sometime before December), the seller said to send him money (about $2,800) to him western union. I said he could ram it up his ass before I send him money western union. About two weeks later I get an email from ubid saying he was a fraud.

    I thought I'd try my luck and I've decided that ubid sucks. I can try to place a bid on an auction that they say is open only to find out that it's not accepting bids. WTF? Also, look at the locations of some of these people: EU, zip 12345? Ha Ha. Shipping weight of 3lbs for a powerbook? Not any Tibook that I know. I think that I'll just have to deal with my ibook If it's too good to be true... oh, wait.... nevermind
