    Leave it! I sold one on CL for $475 and one on eBay for $425. The bidding frenzy was towards the end with about 10 minutes remaining. :cool:

    NEVER accept an offer to end your auction early on eBay. 90% of the time those asking you to do it are scammers trying to get around the saftey rules setup by eBay and they will rip you off anyway.

    As far as you know. I've had friends get what appeared to be legit best offers...all seemed well and good until they sent him an infected jpg file that wrote an entry to his hosts file that redirected his pc to a false version of Escrow.com and highjacked his banking and eBay info. Everything appeared to be legit, but he told me the story and it just sounded fishy to me.

    Luckily I caught it for him in time and he reset everything before the crook got a chance to use the info. But until he received payment instruction, everything sounded legit. It was the escrow.com login that threw up red flags to me.

    I'm just saying, some of these guys are very smart and everything sounds legit in the beginning. They lul you into a false sense of security up front.

    Since the OP has completed her sale (and therefore her original purpose for this thread) and this thread is attracting outside marketplace selling like geeks to a Star Trek convention, I'm closing it. ;)
