Hi Dave, my primary concern was whether or not he found you through this forum. If he did not find you through this forum then I don't see any practical way to become involved -- but I appreciate your sharing the story with us here.

What kind of lens and viewfinder does this have on it. What shape is the battery in (how long will it last).

Our corp company just picked up a used one similar to yours and the batteries have very little life left.

Thanks,

Craigslist huh... prime scam territory.

ANYONE with computer access can set up a free e-mail account, or a pile of them, so just because they are online doesn't make them legit.

Someone who is "very busy" or buying for their second cousin's aunt who's doing charity work in Nigeria or whatever is busy doing one thing - trying to make money by fraud... instead of working for a living. If they find a few naiive suckers out there, it's probably sadly all too lucrative. They have plenty of time to troll the internet and send scam emails out!

I'm guessing the camera was advertised for quite a lot less than $3900? Another huge clue here... why would anyone be willing to pay way more than you are asking??? Presuming you're at a fair price, this is just the hope that your greed glands will overflow and overload your brain... yeah right.

If you know what your gear is worth (and it's not hard to at least figure out a range), you know when someone is talking crazy... remember though that there are a lot of noobs out there, and all these scumbags have to do is find ONE on a regular basis and they are making pretty good money with little chance of getting caught.

Most of these scams are painfully obvious, but there are a few pros out there (I ran across one in particular that works eBay and knows the sytem inside and out - fortunately my CC covered my tail), so you always have to be careful and trade safe. Ask a lot of questions before buying or selling, and if something doesn't seem right, challenge, challenge, challenge - and STILL be careful!!

ebay scammers rife

I've come across this recently. I was bidding on a jvc gz-hd6 and went to a pretty reasonable level for a second hand cam, but it got bid up to more than the new cam costs - like $600- more. I thought wow i cant compete with that, but it too turned out to be a scam and I got a second chance buy from the seller, but it took a few days to get through to the seller they were being scammed... all ok now and the sellers not a fraudster btw it was the buyers but it does seem these attempted scams on high end equipment are rife.

most people want potential buyers with zero feedback to contact them first and i can see why...

I received that identical inquiry on Craigslist, the exact wording. The next day one of our talk shows had the head of Craigslist on their program. I called and talked to him personally. He informed me that type of inquiry originates some where in Asia, and is very difficult to trace.

Here is another corker. Here in Medford OR. A couple, finding no one home stole saddles and other tack equipment. They tried to cover their theft by placing a notice in Craigslist saying. They(the owners) had to move and did not have time to dispose of their belongings, so anyone could come and take anything they wanted, even their horse.

Some one saw the huge number of people loading their cars and called the owner at work. He came home right away to find all the people loading his possessions,and had a difficult time trying to convince the mob this was his property.

The head of Craigslist worked with our police department and some way located the computer and persons who perpetrated this crime. They are now in jail. Radio, TV, & local news paper is trying to help get the owners property returned. As of now I am not aware of how much has been returned.

It is great to know that Craigslist can help in locating crimes like this.

Sorry this is so long. Hope you have found it to be of some interest.

Shoe mount help

Hey guys, where can I find some of the small (camera metal shoe pieces)? Sorry, don't know what they're called. I want to rig up a multi shoe accessory bracket for the top of my camera.

I picked up a couple of cold shoe mounts on eBay for $2 each. Cold shoes have no electronic contacts in them, just the mounting shoe. Hot shoes have some form of contact built in, typically for flash exposure and/or sync.

I found an old wallet of mine with 60 dollars in it that I could put towards this. How does $525 sound?
