    It's in China. Walk away.

    A good rule of thumb is to never bid more than you are protected by PayPal.

    I thought pay pal buyer protection gives upto $2000 so he would be fine in this case.

    He only takes payment though wire transfer

    Would say this is a hacked account. All the history is of a buyer with no selling and then suddenly He/She is selling an item from China.

    These are the items of a person with no interest in the latest iMac.

    I agree, this is most likely a hacked account

    It's a foolish person indeed who relies on PayPal to backstop them on a reckless purchase.

    Guides : Hardware : Buying Online - is this company legit?

    It's an incredibly foolish person to rely on paypal protection when you have to pay by bank transfer...
