I was bidding on a G4 tower in an eBay auction recently, and I lost the auction at the last minute. Damn snipers. Anyhoo, I got an e-mail this afternoon from another eBay member claiming to have a similar machine in unopened condition that he'd sell me for a reduced price. I'll post the e-mail below: Dear Ebay Member, I'm writing this e-mail because I have a Apple Power Mac Dual 1Gh G4 Computer for sale. It is just like the one you are bidding on (# 3413155998). I need to sell it as soon as possible and I can't submit an auction because my Credit Card is Maxed-Out. I am willing to sell you the computer at the price of $1000 all shipping and insurance charges included . The G4 computer are brand new in unopened box. If you need to verify my credibility, take a look at my Ebay rating . I guess my loss is your gain and you should take advantage of that. My offer is very serious so e-mail me if you are interested. My Best Regards, Cornel. Now am I the only one who thinks this sounds a little shady? I want to believe it, as if it's true I can afford a 23" Cinema HD display. What do you guys think?
