Seems like a low price for that machine, either there's "something wrong with it" or someone's old lady is selling the old mans stuff!:laugh:

I would think that market value would be around $18,000- $20,000+ for that machine. looks like the U/C is in good shape

Can you spell "stolen"?

Only the D5 came up. That's way too low. It should be around $30-$35K. Probably a scam or misprint. On the flip side, I have heard of crazier deals due to divorce or estate sales...

Make sure you get the serial numbers checked before you give the guy a cent. Those things look like they're so hot you'd need ovenmits.

It could be stolen equipment or insurance fraud the owner claimed it stolen got insurance money for it.

If it sounds too good to be true then becarefull because its nothing but trouble.

Ask her to fax you copies of the papers "Just for your peace of mind" and if everything checks out then GO FOR IT.

an old saying that continues to ring true over time: If it sounds to good to be true, it probably isn't. On another note: check it out and do your due dilligence. When I lived in Calif. one of my buddies bought a muscle car in concours condition for $400. The reason was the wife was pissed at the husband, she had title and wanted to stick it to him during the divorce........which she did. The car, on the open market, was +/- $85k.......so, sometimes there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow........

Why do they need Ebay Information if it is being sold on craigslist?

09-19-2008, 09:51 PM
The EBAY scam is the most frequent one on Craigslist, Good deals do not last long on the list, I know craigslist nuts that check HOURLY to get the good deals. EBAY does not deal with any transactions.
