poor guy. He declined my offer of $40. Apparently this clothing salesman thinks his UNTESTED, and NOT WORKING computer part is worth 2x more than a TESTED item with warranty. I dislike idiots like this.
It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

Actual quotes from the ad:
"the tower does not have a mother board since I couldn't get into the computer so I destroyed it."
"It's going to be recycled unless someone would like it."

...and then he asks fifty bucks. Of course he does. Really missing the point of selling your stuff there, peckerhead.

I've seen some crazy stuff in my life, but these posts take the cake. Some of these people think they can sell common PC parts for several hundred thousand to a million? The stupidity is definitely out there.

Actually from that post: "the tower does not have a hard drive since I couldn't get into the computer so I destroyed it."

It's actually pretty common for folks to destroy hard drives before selling a computer. At least the smart folks do.

The seller changed it. It definitely said motherboard before.

^^ Yeah it definitely said "motherboard" originally. I was going to follow up and make more fun of it when they arbitrarily raised the price from $50 to $60 but it looks like it's off the market. I highly doubt there was any actual exchange of money for that thing; the seller probably tossed it after too many "insulting" $20 offers. I honestly have no idea what goes on in the minds of some of these people.

That would be considered a change listing witch is not allowed on eBay.
I reported it, so don't be amazed if it gets removed.

Also 6$ shipping on a 600$ lot. :lol:

also same user has a very similar listing.

Those listings are just plain old outrageous!

Anyway, here's one that's puzzling me:

It's also amazing how many people seems to think that you can upload some blurry, dark and out of focus cell phone photos, add a "not tested, should work, see photos" description and ask 150$ for the lot (wich rarely merits half of that, by the way).
When I sell something it's always checked, with photos of the item(s) working and you can even read the writing on the chips.

Up for auction is a lovely Artisan Brooch. Great for that snazzy lady who loves gold and red.

Of course, it's actually an IDE to SATA converter. I'm going to go ahead and call $5 for a broken device overpriced.
