So I'm selling my MBP so I can buy my imac 27". It's a 2.93ghz, with 4GB RAM, 320HD and the first year's guarantee only runs out end of Feb. I have applecare on it. I've received nothing but scammers from gumtree and facebook, and put it up on ebay yesterday. I got an email from a guy, seemingly genuine, offering my starting price at ebay for a cash & collect - this starting price is a tiny bit under what I can accept, but I'll take it to save the hassle. Now, he seems genuine, and unfortunately I was trying to fault him. I googled the phone number he gave me, and lots and lots of classified ads came up, using that number. The names used were one of two people, but never his. Perhaps it could be a family? He has 15 positive reviews on facebook, and seems to sell macs and other things all the time. IF he wants o buy this off me and resell at a higher value, I don't care. I googled the email address in his other ads, and it links to a seller at ebay with 880 positive reviews, for all sorts of electronics second hand. Cash only, pickup only etc. Just seems very odd where they get all this stuff. I'm only worried about getting scammed here. I thought that perhaps (quite common in this area) that he will come and pick the laptop up from me, and thus see my house and later rob me, or mug me there and then for it. So I wrote back and suggested we meet in town, and he was fine with that. I will bring a few friends to protect against anything. I also need him to wait 2 weeks while I get the imac (hopefully ordering today), as I work on the computer and cannot go a day without. He said that's fine as well, and to just call him when ready. I feel terrible if this guy is legit - he's been very polite and nice, and given me no reason to doubt him. I really, really need the sale. I'm just trying to protect myself but can't seem to fault the approach I'm taking now. What do you think?
