Default GTX titan seem legit check?

Hey guys about to jump on this, can you please check it out and see if it seems safe. Iv done my checks and it seems OK.

LQQK - EVGA GTX TITAN - Amazing Deal - Fast Sale Price is FIRM - Alberta Computer Parts For Sale - Kijiji Alberta Canada.

I texted him and he replied back, I suggested EMT payment if he ships to Ontario for extra cost to be covered by me, he agreed. I then asked for some Online rep, he said his Ebay is curedba

reason for selling: medical, ~$1000 will cover his expense.

eBay Feedback Profile for curedba

A google search also suggests this post:

New to this, 3 way sli titans build and tempatures

Iv never done an EMT this big over kijiji, any fail safes on my end in case crap hits the fan?

Everything seems to check out form my end. Looking for a second pair of eyes

Few things about EMT and this is the biggest one. Once he accepts the money he can choose to NOT send it to you and you would be SOL.

What I would suggest is offer to pay half up front then the 2nd half when you receive it.

No way I'd do this if I was the seller.

I personally avoid fire sales like the plague unless it's a face to face exchange. I've seen too many deals gone bad (even here) where folks who appear to have decent rep disappear off of the map without shipping the product after getting payment.

EMT provides you very little protection unless you can convince the police that it's worth their time and money to serve the bank with a court order and I doubt they'd do that for a sub-$1000 purchase.

I'd pass.

Well a forum member has offered to help, lets see where this goes.

Maybe someone like Dog the bounty hunter should be a middle man
