Reading all the posts so far on this, plus my own contact with the guy, makes me believe he has stacks of these cards to sell. He apparently bought them as bankrupt stock from a shop which closed down. So, he may have got it all for peanuts. If so, selling them at 'half price' is probably making him a good return.

What puzzles me a little about this deal is why he isn't selling this stock through EBay? Looking at the money some people are prepared to part with in order to win a Cyberstorm in an EBay auction, he could easily get double what he's asking.

I suppose there are altruistic businessmen somewhere in the world, but I have yet to find one! Don't forget to tell us when you get your PPC card!

Cheers,

Jax

Aha, ok. Well here in Sweden you can ask that. You just ask if this account number is for this person and they say yes or no. It isn´t like you get all the info about that person or so, just a yes or no. Then you know. :-)
Isn´t anyone living nearby and can go there to check him out?  :-D

@JaXanim

I wondered that too, the ebay thing that is.  I think it's simple that he can't be bothered with the hassle and having to wait to the auction to finish.  I mean, if you think about, he's probably making a profit anyway selling them at the price he is.  Otherwise why would he bother?

@tangletown

He has only just signed up for an account.  He told me that when I asked to pay via paypal.

Either way, his comms are good so I'm willing to trust the guy.  We'll see what happens... :-)

Yes, please do regular updates. I am not going to buy that PPC card until i know it is 100% safe. I might also sell my Blizzard PPC 160/060@50mhz card if anyone is interested. I am not sure if it working yet or not, as my Amiga is down to test it. I can also take pictures of it. As i said, if anyone is interested.

I would never sell amiga goods on ebay. Simply because and I know this is going to sound odd but...

I dont like the idea of ripping of dumb users who are willing to pay way over the top for things, even if it is there own doing. I'd much rather sell on amibench at a a fixed cost that I belive is a reasonable price for such an item.

I might shortly be selling a BPPC@240 with an 040/25 on... depending on how things go...

I'm definately pulling out now; cos there are too many unknowns. The ebay point is still the most unsettling one.

What I don't like is the fact he said no PayPal credit-card payments. For him it is the same either way, which is what makes me suspicious as the only difference is that you are covered by the Credit-Card company if it is a scam if you used a CC...

Well he didn't say "no credit cards" to me.
It's his inconsistancies that worried me. I noticed that he used at least 3 different names throughout and the fact that his email is just a free account didn't say much for him either.

I'm not advising you to do a transaction that you feel unsafe about...in fact, i would pull out too.

However, it is not the same for him.  In order to take a CC payment on paypal you have to upgrade your account.  That upgrade means you will pay extra fee's on every transaction, including ones that are NOT CC payments.

In other words, some merchants will refuse to take the CC payments, to avoid those fee's, and I don't blame them.

Paypal charges outrageous fee's.  In commodity markets like gold, you can't take paypal, you have to ask for check or money order.

Good point. I forgot that you needed premium account to accept PayPal, I thought it was reciept of any payment.

Tangle: What names did he use?
