Perfectly new and working condition. Just like new! I have only snapped a few (around 50) pictures with this. Everything that originally comes with the camera is included in the box and US WARRANTY. Im selling this because I have already upgraded. There are NO scratches, dents or any type of damages.

This is NOT a Gray market camera. This is also NOT a refurbished camera.

Serious buyers only!!

For more details e-mail me [email protected]"

Have been having fun playing with this scammer.  Thought if others were interested they too could play along.....

Too bad that emails can not be sent that would blow up a computer!!!!!

Nearly the same one has been posted to the Tampa board about once a week - lol

Personally I think everyone that falls for these guys 100% deserves it for being so dam stupid.

The new twist was that the item was being sold through the I Sold It eBay store.  Of course when asking what store, location or the item number it all became double talk.
