    800 is what I've seen them retail for brand new on Adorama, so I'd say that's a great price to get for a used one.

    It must be depressing to be so distrustful of fellow human beings.

    That sucks. I would report that guy to ebay though so the account will get deleted.

    OR you could have fun with it and tag him along for a while. There was an account I read of a guy who actually made like, 52$ off the the scammer. I wish I could find the link to the article.

    The Powerbook Prank: He wanted a Powerbook. We gave him a P-P-P-Powerbook!

    Is that what you were thinking of? I remember reading that years ago, and your post reminded me of it. I know it's a bit off-topic, but certainly worth the read. He didn't make any money off the scammer (actually, if he didn't get donations, it would have cost him like $80) but made him spend like $550 on tariffs (or duties, or whatever those taxes are called). Easily one of the greatest Internet pranks ever. :)

    You can report him to get your fees charges back to you. Nothing more you can do through eBay, they don't even allow sellers to post negative feedback anymore.

    eBay customer service is amongst a couple others which I consider to be the worst on the planet!

    You ought to share their email address with us, so EVERYONE here on TPF can flood his email address with spam emails for several days.

    Here's wishing a slow and very painful death to ALL scammers and spammers!
