My beef is that if you advertise NEW it should be NEW. I caught him once
before and ebay made him change the listing. This time he had two listings
one new and one used. I checked with him and paid extra for NEW and got the
most banged up unit ever. All from the same stack. Finally got him to agree
to pay for return shipping he wanted it back and I can show you
correspondence where he states he can sell it for $ 60+ and when I gave a negative
review he refused to pay unless I give him a 5 star+. Extortion look forward
what ebay will say. All I can say is stay away from ggg*fitting, not like
some of the other ones. Others cooperate according to some list members,

Hi Bert and all,
Very few occasions items like we talk about is really pristine, I expect
it to be used and only try to judge about how much milage it has. Most
of the dumpster diver level re-circulation folks has low knowledge, and
some excel and actually has a clue, but if only the pictures is their
own and show some reasonable level of degradation and then I judge if I
think there is a fair price or not for what roughly is being provided.
So far I have not been scammed very hard. Most of the stuff has been
within the expected level, but all that comes from makeing a decision of
what to expect and what price is fair for that expectation.
