"Scam incident at another website"
Sun 14-Oct-12 02:10 AM by hijazist


Hello everyone, I read this sad story today at FM and thought to warn you guys and give you head up just in case someone attempts to taint our beloved Nikonians. Scammers usually make their hit at the same time at different places so this could prove helpful. The link has the details and the name, location and strategy of the scammer.

They wouldn't let me retrieve it. What was it about?

As far as I recall it was a guy who traded his M7 Leica for other gear with another guy and after he shipped his M7 he didn't hear back from the scammer, as simple as that. The scammer apparently does not live in the place where the camera was shipped and was going to forward the package to the Philippines. Fortunately, the shipping company was informed in the last minute and withheld the M7 and now it's back for sale on the forum

Sorry about the anecdotal writing style but that's only from memory.
