Just called on a 5D MKII for $1000 I saw on CL. Of course my luck it was already sold. Guy sounded legit. It had under 3k shutter actuations. I felt bad calling at 12:30 at night but he laughed and said he's been getting lots of calls and emails.

This one hurts.


Gear: Yes.

Sorry you didn't get in on the deal.

No offense, but this thread does not belong in the Market Watch forum. It's not a "good deal" that's going to help other Forum members. It's more or less "chit-chat" and should probably be in the POTN Lounge.

My bad. I was looking for somewhere to put it. I'll have it removed.

When I spoke to the guy he did sound legit. He sounded like an older gentleman who maybe wasn't worried about making a $1. Can I say it was 100% legit? No, not 100%, but I'd definitely say 99%. I highly doubt it was stolen too. Usually CL scammers don't put 2 separate phone #'s to contact them, or provide a bunch of photos. Also, he even declined more money from me, I emailed him about 4 different times and he responded to each one say he was sorry, but both cameras were sold, (he was selling a 7D too)

Not everything is a scam.

Regardless, I didn't get it. and I had asked that this thread be closed or moved because I posted in wrong section.
