    If it's too good to be true than it probably is. I fail to understand why people dont understand this...

    this seller actually has sold many high priced (several hundred dollars) items, but he/she sells native american items. Not computers. This account has been hijacked. STAY AWAY (and notify the real owner of the account).

    People are always trying to steal my eBay password. I get an e-mail every other week with people trying to hack my eBay account.

    This account has obviously been hijacked.

    I decided to go ahead and buy one though...just for the fun of it.

    I guess I won't be getting my $800 Powerbook after all, what a shame. Here's the e-mail I got from eBay:

    im suprised it took you an email from ebay to realize this is a scam, as well as you having to ask a whole mac community. whatever happened to common sense.
