Doesn't a 10,000 deal warrent a vist to see the equipment?

Can't speak for others, but if I was contemplating purchasing a ten thousand dollar item, I would take the precaution of inspecting it before I paid for it.

Mrs. Anna Smith

SCAMs such as this have been active for some months now. The scammer will send a bogie chashier's check and the seller will lose his equipment and all shipping costs.

TO DETERMINE EQUIPMENT VALUE, THE CONDITION MUST BE KNOWN!

Joe: It is noteworthy that you had the radio packed by Mailbox Inc. That chain is now owned by UPS. This means that UPS did the packing. Since you had insurance, UPS is liable for payment of the damage. They can not come back and say that any bad packing was your fault. I would NOT take the radio ba...

(Did you buy it new? How long have you had it? Has ...
