    I actually think that guy writes on HC or MT-forum with the name Electron. I reckon it's legit. Doesn't seem to have a lot of interest though...

    There does seem to be a lot of anti-Singapore/Indonesia/Malasia sentiment on eBay. I'm not sure why but I guess the zero-feedback and the location are the Killers for this guy.

    Yeah, I somehow understand that ofcourse. It seems like it would be hard for me also to sell anything in eBay, since I've never done it and I'm from Finland, how trustworthy does that sound? :)

    In my experience very trustworthy:) !

    As you know I like everyone I've ever met from Turku...of course I was massively sleep deprived after the Viking Line ferry trip and drunk for a lot of the short time I was there!

    So drunk you didn't even realise your wallet was nicked and somebody urinated in your amp. HAH!

    No, honestly, check out the name Electron from some other forums. I'm sure he writes somewhere. Anyway, a Timmy is such a small sales items really. Who would want to take the risk of getting caught for that?

    I don't think he's being racist. Although eBay fraud is worldwide now, it seems to have started with a bunch of scammers from Singapore, thus the reputation.

    I live in Singapore.

    The only reason is for that is because alot of the non-legit users are actually from Indo, Nigeria or some common country (where deals tend to cock-up) and the seller is never at Singapore itself. So it's kind of sad to be listed when 99.999% of the sellers are honest sellers.
