Then have you send the cash via Western Union.
It's a common scam so don't get caught up in it.
i recently went on ebay and started a bidding war on the Dell Latitude C640 P4 1.8 30GB WI FI CDRW DVD laptop with xp installed. it says it comes right out of the box and has everything you need to get on line of course i have to but the router. it is refurbished. well that seemed like a good deal to me but the bidding went on 9into the 600.00s i stopped bidding at 620.00 and the other guy got it for 635.00
I then get an e-mail from the owner of the auction saying that his high winner backed out and since i'm the next bidder, he would offer it to me at a discount price of 270.00. I thought at first this was a scam, but all he wrote was for me to tell him what state i lived in and he would get back to me with the S&H total. I also went on ebay and next to my losing bid, there was a sign that says, ebayer has second chance offer on this item. My question is do I take this offer? the guy has a store on ebay and a great rating. are refurbished machines worth it even from a great ebayer like him? how are those laptops? is 270.00 a good deal, why would he offer it to me that cheap espescialy since my last bid was 620.00. is 620.00 worth it for that machine? and what is the going cost for a new one of that make and model. thanks i need help real fast because if it is a good offer and i should take it i need to let him know ASAP
