I'm sure he will turn a profit, but will the profit cover all of the effort that went into acquiring all those goods...

Nah, I've seen a single PS3 cost $100M on eBay, nothing surprises me now.

Seriously, these scams are getting old.

The guy's an idiot, charging that much as if he's going to get it. I mean, he doesn't think that someone will bid and NOT actually pay up? Fool...

Hmm, correct me if im wrong, but doesn't his username on that piece of paper look photoshoped? I mean come on, he is holding it diagonally and the piece of paper looks as if his right hand is infront of his left which would mean the writing wouldnt be perfectly horizontal to the picture. Plus the font is 100% computerized. Has to be a scam without a doubt and I would also bet they are all stolen as well as the account he is probably using unless he borrowed it or jacked the picture from someone else and is never going to send the PS3's because he doesnt have them...

*EDIT* I actually think he does own them now, since he apparently bought them for $1000 each from another ebay auction... whether its all true or not I don't know. But that paper still looks dodgy! ¬_¬

Lol stop trying so hard to take his credibilty away from him. I don't think he stole anything. I don't see anything that looks photoshoped.To quote his Q&A.

Q: I am going reporting you to ebay for selling stolen goods and i will also report you to the police end this auction now

A: This is not stolen. I purchsed these on ebay. I paid through PayPal. Check my feedback and auction wins. Stop Racial Profiling!! lol

^^ The listing price is ridiculous, but the concept is fairly sound IMO...
I'm sure he will sell the goods at a profit, but considering all the PS3s on Ebay he should not expect an insane amount over MSRP.

Brand New U.S. Model Sony Playstation 3 with 60Gb Hard-Drive. You want a 60 because the games are on Blu-Ray DVD's and these have 5 times the storage capacity of current DVD's which means they require 5 times the storage space.
Err, as far as I know thats not how it works.

This guy does seem like a bit of an idiot...

I think he knows it wont sell for that, but thought he might as well try. I reckon unless some scammer buys it and doesn't pay, or someone actually does buy it, he will re list and sell for a reasonable profit. Worth a shot I suppose.

Damn, everything is a racial matter with you guys :wtf:
BTW, isn't it racist to accuse white person if he thinks those might be stolen.

You gotta admit it's quite suspicious to have so many PS3's.

It's stolen from some 'Pony' that didn't 'Pay' on some 'station' number 3.
I think it's really stolen, someone should report on eBay to check if that guy really stolen those "artifacts".

Yeah but those weren't real...nobody is paying that much for these.

2 Things...all those systems/games are probably stolen. They aren't worth near that asking price.

Maybe he couldn't afford the ink! You can only borrow so much before you gotta pay it off lol

You gotta admit it's quite suspicious to have so many PS3's.Nope..But its racist not to accuse a white person where you would accuse a black person. Its the double standard thats racist. I'm sure if this guy was white there'd be some people saying its stolen but i definantly don't feel you'll would be trying so hard to take his credibilty from him.

Photoshopped? Is it THAT hard to believe that he actually printed out his website on a peice of papper? Lol wow. And Gegenki's comment isn't helping your case.

Even if it was photoshopped, he could have simply done that to make the text more visible than it would have been had he printed it on the sheet of paper itself.

if this doesn't sell he could always get a job in the second hand car industry. or microsoft ;)

I don't think anyone is being racist by saying its stolen. White or black its really unlikely, especially when his source of the 5 PS3 auctions all look to be fake...

What's with the "pony paystation 3" that the dude says he "only set up for one person" (he sold like 4 of them to him) and he has no more in stock and if you send him money he will send you a thank you card but no "pony paystation" (which was probably named that so not many people would bid on it)... seems fishy.


if you are looking at this and don't know why. DO NOT BID. THIS WAS SET UP FOR ONE PERSON AND ONE PERSON. I NO LONGER HAVE ANY PS3'S IN MY POSSESSION. IF YOU SEND ME MONEY I WILL SEND YOU A NICE THANKYOU CARD BUT NOTHING ELSE. THIS AUCTION IS NOW JUST FOR A NICE THANKYOU CARD UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT HypKontik is and you live in fort worth TX

This guy is madman though... look at all those Sony things! He could totally hoard them and only sell them for like 22 million..

it doesn`t matter if they are stolen or not only an idiot would pay that kind of price especially as sony will eventually provide ps3`s in large quantities.
