I know its a scam but
"I have a business verified PayPal account, with all limits lifted. This is the most vigorous verification PayPal does and I have passed it and all its security checks. So rest assured, you are dealing with a legitimate businessman. If after this you still have concerns, just send me a message and I will be happy to address your issues within the hour."
Business verification is not easy and holds certain gurentees in addition to normal account you have to provide:-
Supplier invoices.
Photo ID.
Proof of address
When your business turnover increases.
Still a scam but a very ilaborate one.

the way i feel is as follows;

if you, as an individual, feel that this is a scam, simply do not participate in it.

follow your instincts, no need to be gossip girls.

i, for one, bought one. the exposure is minimal at 350e and the deadline is august 29th.

we will see how it goes

its a scam!! because paypal and ebay only protect you for a month starting from the date of purchase

those people who bought it today and only protected until 2nd August. After this there is no way that you can get your money back! and hes saying he will post it on 29th August! no one will be protected by ebay or paypal by that time

clearly a trap..

Surely any responsible community will warn it's members of the presence of anyone wishing to take advantage of them. It's one of the things that gives meaning to the term 'community'.

I know considering he actually says you may remember me from selling N8's and such previously. If the guys that have already bought one actually checked his selling history you will see the only thing he has ever sold were maps for a game and a howto get rich playing roullete scam for 300 which the buyer made a complaint about.
Still if you have more money than sense go for it..
