    that seems very cheap for a brand new Powerbook - his feedback is only 4 and the e-mail address he has for paypal is for this website heritageholding.com


    i would tread carefully, e-mail the ebayer and ask for real photo's and if you can collect in person ! that one normaly scares the scammers away

    good luck ! if real you got a bargain

    Thanks liketom. Yeah, it does sound iffy, I agree. At least he's not asking for wiretransfer. Although, he may know nothing about macs...and priced according to pc notebook prices. We will see.

    well i just bought a sony vaio from ebay for 1200 that was listed for 1600 retail and the guy had 0 feedback, but it came and everything is perfect.
    it's just that one damn fraudulant seller that ruins it for the rest of us..making us all paranoid..damn them!
