This is the message you get if you email him. I told him I can go pick it up in Humble Texas because I am a few hours away. Waiting for the reply saying ge is on a business trip.

Hi,

If you want to buy it now for the price of $2500 with shipping and handling included, i will need your full name, address(shipping address) and username so i can contact the eBay team to let them know about our transaction, and after they will approve it, you will receive an invoice containing all the steps that you need to follow for this to be a safe and fast transaction. Also a phone number is required where you can be found at any hour(cell phone). My auction is 7 days money back guarantee (if it's not like we agreed, or broken you will receive the money back). I can ship in 3 days via UPS, and please let me know if we can arrange a deal.

Regards,

Richard

Contact data in an image... This is an easy reason to have this ad taken down by eBay. They hate it when you try to avoid fees...

Okay here's part two. He is New York on a business trip.
This is my reply. "Wow, you are NYC, so is my wife, she can pick it up."

Hi Jeremy,

For the moment I'm in New York, NY with a business(this is the reason for selling it, because i need money very fast to pay some debt on my bank) and it will be shipped from here. Please let me know your full name and shipping info so I can contact eBay to start the transaction.

Best Regards,

Richard

But just last year I contacted 3 ebay sellers and said I would fly out to check pan ...... but every tine they had some excuse of not being able to see or where not going to be in town to be able to show me pan units ...

You know we love Ray and the Mods for what they do ...... but need one day a year.... to promote payback to scammers and flippers.....that all mods take a vacation ....somthing like this would be educational. to youth.... to show how to get payback and get away with it ....

You never ever ever never scam public or take advantage of your circles ... its just manners ..... Roy

Every time someone posts with an email contained in an image, and with a payment that is not officially through ebay, you know it's a scam. I've been seeing these for years. Not to mention there is an (unofficial) ridiculously low "Buy It Now" price.

Reporting it with prohibited listing practices will get it removed. You are not allowed to put contact info in listings, or sell outside ebay channels (then ebay and paypal don't get their fees, and they HATE that!)

It will be gone soon.
