secretvampire Posted February 18, 2005 Report Share Posted February 18, 2005 Okay, so you might have seen in my other thread, I bought a Japanese PS2 off of Ebay to play import PS2 games. I'm getting a really bad feeling in my gut that I'm getting scammed and I want to know what you all think. When I bought this system (on the 15th), it was the only auction he had going on. Now he has about 20-30 auctions of very valuable electronics with no prior history of doing so...laptops, a few digital cameras, some camcorders, etc. He had nine feedback when I bought from him, and his account was a year and a half old. I didn't get a response for two days after I bought (and paid for) the system, until today. He apologized for not replying and said the system will ship next Monday and take 3-5 days for delivery. I have two theories. One, he just went to Japan or Canada and bought a bunch of stuff to resell and try to get into the business on Ebay. He's not a very experienced Ebayer and isn't moving as fast as he should be, but he's new. Two, this guy is making a grab for a few quick thousand dollars OR his account and email have been hijacked by a phisher that is doing the same thing. I'm worried he's trying to stall me until his other auctions end later, so I don't cause too much trouble until he is ready to disappear. The more and more I think about it, I think this guy is trouble and I don't want to lose all that money! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
