    I recommend anyone interested to meet the seller at their home address and if that's not convenient then the local police station is a good option. Its a lot of money and I've seen it go wrong too many times.
    Both parties need to be as safe as possible.

    I don't mind doing this in front of police so a police station sounds fair

    The OP is selling MBP RRP £2,699 for £1,350. Is that right?

    Apparently.
    You know what they say, if it seems too good to be true...
    I'd love to be pleasantly surprised though.

    @RedAMG I have to agree with the others here and I recommend you exercise extreme caution with this deal. Ensure you get the sellers full details and check them out before arranging meeting/delivery. If/when 'brandon' does arrive to collect make sure you check and test it fully before parting with any money.

    As I said above, ensure you get all of his details and thoroughly check the item before parting with any cash. I would also highly recommend keeping all communications to private messaging so that you have everything written down In case of any issues.
    This item is massively under-priced which in itself should be ringing alarm bells for you, as should communication by phone. This is very common tactic used by scammers as it doesn't leave a paper trail.

    I shouldn't need to remind members, but unless you are one of the parties involved in the deal or you have important information to pass on that may be relevant to the sale, you should not be posting in a classifieds thread.
    Thank you.

    Thank you, and please don't proceed with anything unless you're completely happy. We'd rather see a deal fall through than have someone get ripped off.

    Hopefully though this will all turn out to be completely innocent and work out fine.

    @Miss Mandy Update, Brandon2017 has not responded since taking it to pm. I contacted the ebay seller and asked him if he is selling the macbook anywhere else. He said the only place he has advertised it on other then eBay is on gumtree and Shpock. So I can only assume that the images uploaded on this thread are photoshopped and this was clearly a scam.

    It would be a significant hit to take, no one in their right mind would be willing to lose over £1000 of the RRP
