You are right to be suspicious, you can never be too careful (as a buyer or a seller). It is nice to use the classifieds (I think) because we can keep the $$ out of the hands of ebay. If I end up selling on the bay it will end up costing me more than I want to let go of for Final Value Fee.
That said, I only buy and sell through classifieds with Paypal. This protects the buyer and the seller.
Also, I have not been around the android forum for that long as a member (another thing worth considering)--I lurked for some time before I signed up. That said, if you care to check my ebay rating my username there is wipetheclock.
The NOOK is in great shape. I am only getting rid of it as I prefer using my Kindle for reading and my netbook for surfing. I had hoped I would make the NOOK my one piece of technology for both.
Let me know if you are interested,
Where are you at? Getting it to you by W/TH is tight especially as tomorrow is a holiday. I could of course send it overnight, but that costy pricey for you.
To the OP,
After some thinking I would like to clarify my post. I was stating my personal buying critera to the poster to which I quoted. By no means am I bashing you or the item your trying to sell. 99% of the members are legit. Just wanted to throw that out there.
No problem. I didn't take it personally one bit!! Glad you're out there to offer up some advice.
