No chance this is a proper deal. Even if the guy had 10000 stolen drives, he'd only make $5 or so profit selling one. THe math never lies. Scam. THis guy is preying on the fact that people will buy stuff that is too good to be true because they cannot resist getting something for next to nothing even when their instinct screams scam.

I don't see Paypal paying anyone back anything. THey will find a way out of it.

doesnt paypal hold the money for a while these days? someone was saying that

also,you must be aproved for protection before you bid.

and like i said, if the scammer is not that dumb, he'l lwant some positives from normal users on top of his

cohorts or some stolen accts, i mean other stolen accts.

shipping from china + customs + whatever = a few weeks.

trick with paypal is to be among the firsts to claim,just in case they didnt hold the casho.

Man...I really want an external HDD. I am so tempted, but I just can't bring myself to believe this deal is legit. I will have to pass. If anyone gets one and it works, please post ASAP...though I really don't see that happening.

Yup blatant scam is blatant. Wanna bet they are knocks offs...or fell off the back of a truck...or are just plain wrong in the description and its the older model...with lower capacity (like 500GB or 320GB).

Hope its not and I hope you guys got in a great deal. Let us all know when you get it. :>

10:1 says that if you do receive a package from him/them it will be as it was a month or so ago and be nothing but a box with a fake Chinese coin.
