    I really hope you don't have to go and lose $1500 just to learn a lesson about scams :rolleyes:

    the ram alone is worth more than $1500

    You should have offered a local pick-up and then you could have seen his "reason" for not having you pick it up

    Spread the love to his pocket....you'd think they'd be a little smarter and not make the price so cheap - that or offer a $2k machine for $1.5 - you'd get the same money but probably more real offers.

    This stupidity just screams scam....
