Do not buy discount M2s online

Post by rpollack » Thu May 12, 2016 6:04 pm

We have had at least one machine purchased with a stolen credit card and then the machine appeared online for sale at a discount. Do not buy discount new M2s from eBay, Amazon, etc without checking with us first. Notifying the online services has not been productive.

No way to tie it to the shipping address of the purchaser? :evil:

If you see a discount M2 on Amazon or eBay, particularly if it is shipping from New York...beware!

Get the serial number and send it to us first.

Jules - this shipment was diverted by the recipient to a FedEx store to be held for pickup. The person at the FedEx store was supposed to require ID for the pickup but didn't. We have a case open with FedEx but it is a massive waste of time and resources.

Model m2 Accembled
It saddens me that there are people out there that do this kind of thing, but the fact that they aren't smart enough and couldn't even spell the word assembled blows my mind.

What blows my mind is people will actually bid on something this expensive when someone has no feed back and it's so poorly written to boot.

It's a shill....the guy is re-bidding to drive the price up and make it look legit. (Probably the guy that stole it, under a different identity.) I gave up on EBay a long time ago. :evil:
