So I searched ebay for macbook pro and I find one guy selling (thinking back) somewhere in the vecinity of 15 macbooks. Each one is at a base of 1500 american or 1750 canadian. The guy is a brand new ebayer with 0 feedback. HMMMMM whats a guy to do.
Well I never actually tought I would buy one anyway from him. Those kind people at ebay have already taken the guy down. He is nowhere to be seen anymore. You know if he was trying to scam sombody he should be alittle bit more inconspicuous. You know like not put up 15 brand new macs all at the same time.
I bought a brand-new in the box aluminum PowerBook from a power seller with thousands of positive feedback from eBay when they were first released (2 years ago). Price was not out out of line (like the scams seem to be) and I did all the usual checking one has to do with eBay. I decided to buy.
Had great communication and the transaction was super smooth.
When the screen died after 1 month I took it in for warranty repairs and everything was fine until 2 weeks later I got a call from a detective in New York saying the unit was stolen. I figured it popped up in Apple's system and they contacted the authorities. To make a long story short, I had to give up the PowerBook because they got the RCMP involved and my lawyer said there wasn't much I could do.
Maybe you might get lucky but even the most legit deals can go sour. Be careful, I lost $2500 because of eBay. I only sell on eBay now, I never buy anymore unless I can afford to lose the $$
