I happened do look on yahoo auctions for used equipment for sale. I did a search and found nothing however, they had an option to see shindaiwa sold in the past. There was one item, an EB-45. So I click and what do I see?!?!?! I swear it is my old blower that was stolen. I start reading up on the seller as to where he is from. WEll the seller was just above me in Arkansas. It has been known for stolen equipment in my area to show up in east texas and south /south central Arkansas. Ofcourse at yahoo auctions you can not obtain an email address unless they post it. I have taken a chance by using the users name @yahoo.com to see if I can get in touch with the buyer. Wrote him a short note that included a detailed description along with the serial number. I hope that they are honest and reply back. I am not so worried about getting it back but I would love to nail the guy that sold it if indeed it is mine and if he is in the business of selling hot goods via internet. Oh well time will tell.
