    Just seen this Tag DVD32R on ebay. Are people actually stupid enough to send cash on such an obvious rip off?

    I think I'll ask him a few questions.


    Whats the serial number
    Can I veiw before auction end
    Can I pay any other way
    How much would he want to add a buy now


    Do you think I'll get a reply? Is there anything else I should ask?

    Nothing new here I'm afraid.....this sort of nonsense has been rife in the Krell and levinson sections of ebay for a while now....you'll almost certainly get a reply,and almsot certainly get plenty of rubbish into your home email as well.

    If you're convinced it's a scam,then inform ebay and let them remove it.....they usually do so within 24 hours.

    for any reasonable seller, I would say that a collection with cash payment is the best way to go, easy and quick. If a seller doesnt like that thought then they are almost def hiding something
