Best case scenario is that is going to be a cardboard box full of angry bees.

What could go wrong?




Aside from the fact that the "Check out our ebay store for hundreds of customized PCs" link takes you to the actual ebay store, not the one this template was scraped from. Or the fact that this user has 1 item when you look at their Items For Sale link. Or the 16 feedback rating....


Go for it!

They couldn't ship that computer for what they are asking for it, obvious scam.

Gotta be a type-o.  Even a scammer isn't going to try to fool someone into thinking they can buy $1k+ computer for $30.  I'm guessing it's supposed to be GBP 2,299 / $2,804.

Why is it in pounds but it ships from Chandler, Arizona?

Surles, don't ---smurfing--- cheap out on your hotel when you got $30 to drop on ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- like this. :cheers:

This kills it.

PLEASE NOTE: An Operating System is not included with this PC.

With an OS, I could scrape together the $30.

Some dude probably got hacked and all the funds will be transferred out before the the refund can be processed...
Dude will probably be on the hook for it.

I already know its never gonna get marked as shipped. Ebay has been good about getting my money back in about two weeks from purchase when i dont get something. I dont know why i even wasted my time. Just curious i guess.

Could be they do that so that it can not be disputed for a longer time as the estimated delivery date is over the 15 days you have to file a dispute with Paypal.  :dunno

Remember that one time dudes here bought those cheap Android-on-a-sticks from China and they ended up getting beads and trinkets instead?

Oh yeah I remember that one - but the bracelet I got was good enough for a cheap Christmas present, but I was disappointed when it showed up minus the TV stick....

Is marked as shipped but has been removed. So no way to track or contact seller.

Yotsuya is right, you should not encourage that nonsense.

I think we all prefer the threads on the other kind of eBay scams any way.
