    Dropped his camera in the toilet? That's the best one I've heard since O.J. broke that glass in his hand to cause those cuts... It's a scam. Surely someone with the resources to get TEN GSM Treo 650's has the resources to get a cheap-*** camera to get people to bid hundreds of dollars more on them. This guy is cashing out his eBay account in a BIG WAY.

    No camera? He's got 10 Treo 650's. He's got 10 cameras!

    I don't think this is legit, but if it is would you want to crack one of the packages open to use the camera and to take pictures of it and then try and explain to that person that get's that package why it's open?

    It has been rumored that some legit ebayers have been hacked and taken over by scammers to take advantage of their good feedback. I don't know how true this is.

    Items in Chicago, Paypal in Singapore, and refusal to provide pictures is enough for me to assume this is a hijacked ebay account scam. I hope I'm wrong, though.

    Well, if I was interested in this, I would tell him to open a box, take a picture with the Treo of all the other boxes, send the picture to me and if its legit, he can send me the one that he opened

    But even if it was legit, I wouldn't pay $1000 when it can be had for half that in less than a month.

    This "phishing email" would explain how they steal accounts (I get this email about 20x a month). You really have to check out the link posted. Quite authentic looking. I always fill out the information with phoney details and submit it just for fun.

    What if this isn't the guy...now you've posted this poor sap's personal info online. Yes, I know it's probably available through 411 or some online search directory.

    ixtab1970, do the right thing and take it down...

    The easy way to resolve this:

    Go to Alamak.com it is a chat room room stationed in Singapore. Go in and find someone who lives near by. And have them go by and checkout the phones and take some pictures. I did this to a guy in Sweden (selling new Dell laptops for $200) with a swedish chatroom - the guy got mad and told me to quit sending people to his house and he took all of the laptops off auction.

    Best thing that can happen is that he gets a call from a TC user and learn that his ebay account was hijacked.
    If it wasn't and he is legit then even better, then I'm sure the 4 remaining items will sell right away.

    I agree about not posting personal information in general but well this bid looks too suspicious.

    As I noted in my earlier post, of course you can get his info online....not the point though. Clearly anyone reading this thread is not going (at least I hope not) to get suckered into this weather it's legit or not(unless you're ready to drop $1000 to get by it next week). If it's a scam, he'll be found out soon enough, but if this is the wrong guy, you hosed some guy who probably doesn't want to be bothered, period.

    so, is his address in singapore?
    i've lived in singapore for over 10 years, i should be familiar with the address

    Well, if his history tells anything, then he MIGHT be ok. But even though he has a high ebay rating, notice that he does not have PayPal buyer protection. So, if you DO buy, and it is a scam, then your screwed.
