Last year I came VERY close to purchasing a 10-r on Ebay. How could I resist at a $4500.00 sale price. The seller was overseas and was Square Trade listed. HOWEVER, after doing a lot of research, I found out the he was not Square Trade listed. He faked the logo on his listing. That was the first bad sign. Then, he was wanting to use a shipping company that did not exist. And man, did the website and everything look legit, until I called UPS to verify this company was working with them and found out they had never heard of it. I filed a compaint with the FBI, Ebay, and UPS sending them all e-mails and website links from this seller.
I have bought a ton of goodies off Ebay with no problems, but I am always very careful. Like my Dad used to say : "Respect everyone, but trust noone".
Even though I did finally get my 10, and paid 11k OTD, it is in my garage!!!
