i've got a old Intel Celeron 900MHz computer here. It has 512MB PC 133 RAM (4x 128MB sticks). Intergrated Video/Sound, 56k modem, 10/100 LAN, CD-ROM, 30GB Maxtor HDD. It using a Intel motherboard.

Only looking at getting around $100 bucks for it. Shipping will probable be around $20 bucks in the USA. I'll take western union money orders or paypal. Let me know if you want it.

add $20 more and i'll put another 30GB maxtor hdd in there.

Do you still have this? and give me the specs on the video?
thanks Dan

Yes it is still available.

The video is just some integrated Intel extreme graphics. The board has an AGP slot if your going to be doing any gaming, or anything over surfing the web for that matter I would suggest upgrading to a better video card.

Let me know if you want it I can have it shipped out tommrow...

Could I have an update on this please? I have PM'd you as well.

Here is an update for you, he took money from both of us and ran.

Compdude, correct me if I'm wrong.
October 22, 2003 12:27:39 PM

I'll admit, it doesn't look good. It doesn't seem likely that you would want to become a criminal for just $240.00. Well, we both paid him with paypal, and they have his personal information, so its not like there isn't recourse for this. Also, I can transfer the expense to my corporate card and my company will pursue the matter. They don't fool around either. Oh well....

I thank the good Lord for credit card reversals, I already got my money back.

If you paid using a credit card (through pay pal) call your credit card right now.
October 22, 2003 4:03:37 PM

I think I'll do that...what kind of information do you need?

The guy scammed you? What a complete f*cking wanker.

Yeah, just called Visa...they were very nice about it. They have already credited my acount and are going to work through paypal to recover their money.
Ireally tried to be discreet about this, but I think its time Globe111 and I came clean about what's been going on...I'm goign to make a new thread about it...

I don't know...I don't think he totally scammed us, but he definately needs to be more communicative, and honest. Maybe something happened to him like a car accident or happens sometimes

It's all Bush's fault
October 22, 2003 5:10:20 PM

Well, at least you both got your money back, so you're not out of pocket. That's good.

I suppose he could have had an accident, but this definitely smells though.

The only light in the tunel for this one is that I still havent gotten a read reciept for my pm's, so there is still a maybee.
October 22, 2003 5:23:31 PM

Let's hope there is a genuine reason behind it all. Like I said earlier, at least you've got your money back.

If he has scammed you guys, can't an admin ban his IP subnet from THG forums?
October 22, 2003 10:30:28 PM

everyone wants to ban ppl why?

just post a msg that tells ppl not to buy from him.

Well, I agree with both of you. That was easy. But I do think that a proven person making bad deals should be banned. Harsh? Yes. But the only way the Internet is ever going to get cleaner is if all of us do our little part at wiping out the trash.

I think anyone scammed by this scum should complain long and loud to the forum moderator. Include all the ugly details, so that he knows you're not just in a flame war.

November 4, 2003 2:05:19 PM

what should really happen is that fredi should give hima usertitle of "BAD SELLER" or"DONT BUY FROM ME" instead of banning cuz then he'll just go to another forum and start selling his crap there as well.

The computer finally arrived at my Mother-in-laws house...3 weeks late. From their description it sounds as if the computer is what he said it would be. It at least has the 900 mhz celeron in it. She can't boot into windows yet because she doesn't have a keyboard. We'll see if it works as planned.

It's all Bush's fault...all of it...
