Usually they're called "scammers" but is this guy selling scanners? I'm confused :confused: :confused2



Rule number 1: When in doubt...PASS!

Okay this guy is from Brazil, zero feedback and is offering free shipping worldwide. Definitely a scam for a buy it now of $200

It's almost as bad when a seller offer a 2nd chance of Doom PF also with free shipping, zero feedback and I was the forth highest bidder at $405. That was a big red flag for me and I end up passing on it.

probably a scam, but if you pay with paypal via a credit card, your money is safe. I've taken a few risks like this that panned out very well, but I also got burned once, but I got my money back so it really was not a gamble. It's just a matter of whether or not you care that your funds are tied up for a week or two if it doesn't pan out.

What "Brazil" has to do with anything ? If it was USA or Switzerland/Germany would be okay ?

If I can remember Bernard Madoff is from the the good ol' U.S. of A.

So... if they would've priced it higher, they'd be less suspect? Maybe they'll relist it at $400.

It could also just be someone who doesn't know what they've got. We all started with zero feedback...

Could be a scammer, but there's no way to know based on that listing. Like someone else mentioned, there is zero risk for the buyer. If you don't get it, you get your money back. If you get it and it's a fake, you get your money back.

Looks fishy!...why would he give a 2nd chance offer and let the statue go for only $200, if he can re list it and get much more through bidding?.....i would pass!

***You've just won $3,000,000 on the Nigerian Lottery!!!!!***

Luckily, I work for the Lottery commission so can process your claim much faster than normal.
The standard charge would be 5% but seeing as you a member here if you send me $500 i'll forward you the cheque.

What a deal! :thumbs2:

After you partake in that great deal you can send me a couple of thousand too to invest my new invention, the room temperature fridge. Perfect for winter climates and the living at really high altitudes.

I know you get your money back from Paypal if it's a scam. But what happens if the seller sends you something that is not exactly the Spiderman PF? Don't Ebay/Paypal make you ship the item back to the seller before you can get your refund? If that's the case, then the shipping back to Brazil would be expensive and you're out some money for nothing.

or the seller can send you a piece of rock with a tracking info. if the seller can prove that he/she sent it...then the buyer is at loss...

not worth it people....
