RE: Does this IC-970 look familiar????



Be very careful when selling stuff folks. I have seen a number of scams
and was almost caught in one a few years back from someone in the
Netherlands.
Deal with those you know, in state, North America, but watch out
otherwise.
As well, if asked for Western Union, they like this method of payment.

Selling anything direct and not via the auction is a way to lose your
money. 
You do not get eBay fraud protection and you cannot complain about the
seller 
because you did not complete a transaction via eBay.
