    My wife wants one of these for her birthday. This seems like a good price, even if there are any tax issues. Anyone shed any light on this?
    Thanks

    Would need the eBay link to be able to comment bud. I would say though that you need to factor in the final price and add sales taxes etc to it before you decide. Also ascertain if there is an international warranty or not.

    Yep works a treat.

    Odd think is the guy is a member in Canada but the item location is London. Be worth asking where exactly it's shipping from as if its London then it might be a bargain :)

    Just as a word of warning here. Be very careful here.
    As said before buyers location in not postage location. Private Bids and asking to use his email address and not via eBay.
    Sounds like a hijacked account to me. I would email and ask if they take PayPay.
    Chances are they will not, it will be one of the money transfer schemes.

    Thanks guys. Very aware of the money tarnsfer schemes so will question until satisfied one way or another. Have asked for explanation of nationality/currency/location discrepancies.
    Will let you know if I hear anything, although not expecting much!

    I sent a report to eBay, so maybe that helped! And this was the reply to my questions to the seller..........

If you are interested and would like to purchase I await your order very soon for my best price of only 700GBP .This price includes the shipping and handling fees. For payment I accept Western Union Money Transfer and I will ship you the package via FedEx priority service in 1 Day, please go to www.westernunion.com insert you address at FIND A LOCAL AGENT. You will see there are a lot of western union agencies near you.
    Visit a Western Union office and make payment to my name and address, after you have made payment the folks from Western Union will give you a MTCN# (Money Transfer Control Number), please email me this number and I will check on Western Union’s web page. If everything is fine I will ship right away with FedEx priority service and email you the tracking number. After you receive the package you need to email me that everything is okay so I may pick up the payment. Remember that you have to pay the Western Union fees as i will pay for the shipping.

    Yup, even a man of my limited intelligence has arrived at that conclusion. Hence this suggestion:

    Just thought we could string it along a bit..........
