Think this is for real?

I received this email from a potential buyer for my camera I have listed both on this board and on another. (no, not ebay)


"Thank you very much for your mail,about the status of the item,i very much appreciate your reply and i believe that the item is in its best condition? and can be presented as a gift?i will offer you US $3900.00 including the shipping overseas,i'm very serious about this transaction so i dont want you to take it lightly and i want us to make everything snappy cos im very busy at work nowadays,i dont have much time for the internet.
I will make the payment via paypal cos i believe its the best to make an online transaction,so send me your paypal email address or request for a payment so that i can proceed with the payment of the item asap.
Thank you very much hope to hear from you soon."


I emailed the guy (after I called Paypal...they told me to send it to their "spoof" email account) and told him to send me his phone number and address in order verify his credibility. Amazingly, he hasn't responded.

Ya gotta love these idiots...

Regards - David Bird

Sean,

IMHO, You will be lucky to break the $2,000 - $2,500 range.

Thanks David,

Sounds like either the beginning of a confidence game or nefarious transfer of funds (perhaps using a stolen credit card). Good for you - on one side working hard to sell your gear and the other side using good business sense to avoid getting caught up in fraud.

Thanks for sharing, Michael

That's what i thought..

I was thinking of somewhere around the 1200 mark...

I've seen the lens being sold on it's own for 700.

Like everything, i guess it's only worth what someone will pay for it.

It's got to be said though, i've never seen a better SD image from a MiniDV cam before. I've just shot a movie with it and the images are fantastic.

Thanks for your input...much appreciated.

Sean

I think a lot of us are waiting for the DV500 equivalent in the HD space.

A lot of value for the money.

Try an advanced search on Ebay, choosing "completed items only" and you'll see what others have managed to get...

Got this message after I requested a phone number, name, and address...

"well im in y working place now and im unable to receive calls how are we gonna do it i think mailing is ok and best.
thanks."


"mailing is ok and best" hummm....I'm not sure I get the drift on that.

It's pretty obvious that what he/she is up to would not fit the guidelines of the Better Business Bureau.

Sender's email is royalversion7@aim.com. Beware.

Regards all - David Bird

It will either be a hijacked paypal account, once you ship the item, you will be notified by paypal that the transaction was reversed, and your account will go negative, OR they will ask you to ship it to a different address, once they recieve it, they will file a claim with paypal saying it was not shipped to a confirmed address, and they will get the money refunded. either way, your out the money and the camera and the shipping.

I had a camera for sale on ebay and someone clicked "Buy it Now" and sent me a letter very similar to this one. The way they tried to scam me was to send me a fake email that appeared to be from PayPal saying I had been paid (which of course I hadn't). They were hoping I would go ahead and ship the camera. They say they are very busy and in a hurry so you will just go and ship it before you take the time to confirm payment.

Luckily I recognized it as a scam from the first moment and never even responded to them - just turned it into ebay security.

I think the tapeless part will be tough to find. There aren't many consumer tapeless hd cameras out there and the people with them are probably pretty happy with what they have. Something may turn up though so be patient. Good luck.
