So I wrote this:
Is the camera in the US or Canada? If it is the US I'd like to go check it out.
And rec'd this back:
Alright, i`m glad you are still interested. So like i said before i'll explain how The Online Outpost works because i want all things to be clear from the beginning. They are the best selling service on eBay, you simply drop an item to one of their stores or have them pick it up from your home, you find a buyer and they'll take it from there. When i left in Canada i left 4 items for sale in their custody, they picked them up from my home so don`t ask at what store, or where the item is exactly because i don`t know, all i know is that they are holding them in one of their warehouses, but as long as they are handling the shipping and handling i don`t care where they are.The best thing about this is that shipping is handled by them and the insurance and shipping fees are covered by them, they charge me a commission of course as nothing is free in this world but they like to call it free . One more thing, the item is located in US not in Canada, so it will be shipped from US.
OK so here`s a short description of how they work: they have the item, you agree to buy it, you send me your full name and shipping address, i`ll send it to them as a confirmation that i accept you as the buyer, they send you an invoice with the transaction details and the payment instructions and you will send the payment to one of their agents. After they receive the payment confirmation, they will start the shipping process. After you receive the item, you have a 10 day money back guarantee to check if everything is in order. If you don`t like it you can return it within these 10 days and receive a full refund, or keep it and notify them so they can transfer the payment to me. If you decide to return it they will ship it back and they will bill me for the shipping cost so you see i have no intention of sending you something that isn't as described.
So if you agree with this terms and decide to proceed, then i will need your full name and shipping address in order to start the transaction. They will contact you by email so if you have other email accounts please let me have them so i can be sure that they contact you and avoid any possible delay.
As soon as i receive this details from you i will forward them to The Online Outpost exactly as you sent them.
I can't post what I wrote back. But I hate scammers like this. My grandmother fell victim to a Nigerian scheme and wound up sending over $250,000 to Nigeria. Imagine the number of real Canon 1Ds Mark II's I could buy with that! Now she's pennyless. She wouldn't listen to anyone that it was all a scam. It took me over 6 months to convince my mom to get legal guardianship over her financial affairs. So if I ever meet one of these scammers I'll do to them exactly what I said I would in my e-mail.
