    You could always try asking and find out what's up that way.

    Hell I'd pay $600 for a MBP and then the extra $$ to ship it up to Canada. Something's a bit fishy, but I agree with the post above, an email or two could sort out what's what.

    I would guess stolen, but they picture the boxes and everything. 99% sure it's a scam.

    The creative photography some MySpace people do in order to present themselves in the best possible light. It often involves poorly focused pictures, extreme closeups, and oddly-cropped photos.

    myspace angles are pictures that are basically used to show your good side or hide a bad feature. the most common example is a bigger girl, that might show a nice chest, but you don't see the gut because of the angle ...

    Now I can explain them in this sale as well ...

    the user probably stole the photos from ebay or another CL and they had to chop off the original users mark ... thats my guess at least.

    or its stolen and they can't work the camera ... but well that doesn't explain the inconsistent image sizes

    definitely looks like a scam to me. one of the links has already been removed..

    comes back to the ole "if it seems too good to be true then it probably is.."

    myspace: the movie does the phenomenon more justice than any description would.
