I've listed my computer on eBay and received all sorts of odd questions. One guy kept asking me if I'd please leave my personal data on the hard drive. When I said no, he said, "Well, can you at least not wipe the drive before resetting it to factory settings?" Gee, I wonder what you're after buddy. Another guy kept giving me a hard-luck story and said, "I can only afford $100. If you'll take the $100 I can get it to you immediately." The problem is, I can't afford to sell my computer for $100. I think I had to explain this four times in separate emails. While selling my iPod I received this message: This didn't seem too far-fetched, but I like to check up on things. Turns out the guy's Paypal account was suspended for unauthorized use. I turned his offer down. Finally, I received this little message: Does eBay just attract off-beat people? All I'm trying to do is complete a smooth transaction! I have completed over 60 or so transactions, many of which were for audio equipment or computers, and never had any trouble. Most were completed a few years ago. Has the market changed (for the worse) that much in the past few years?
