weird

I do agree with you on the one in US and one overseas. BUT...... He might really want to sell it. He might get more offers that way by putting it on two different spots. Just my thought. BUt it is weird.

I sent the sellers questions.....totally different people. The guy on RCU denied that he was doing anything wrong saying his ad was up first. Maybe he's just lying. Or perhaps someone is selling it before buying it?! Never know. I'm tempted to buy it and see what happens. $500 is a great deal for that heli if its as described! Haha but I won't. We'll see what i hear back from them.

ooohhhh

dahflyboy,
I see what you mean. WE should all pitch in like 50 bucks and buy it like you said and see what happens. He could be a liar. Well if he is lying i feel bad for the buyers.

its very likely that one of them didn't have a picture so they 'borrowed' the photo from the other seller.

EDIT.. err.. maybe not. just read both item descriptions.

Rediculous

I sent a mail to the RCU moderator. I don't normally get involved but the RCU add states that they only accept payment via Western Union and other direct payment methods. This just screams ripoff. The Ebay add takes paypal, so at least you can take the insurance if he's verified.

I guess it was only a matter of time before the scammers started targeting the RC community. It's always been there, but this is pretty blatant.

The fact that he just straight up ripped off the item description and everything is pretty ballsy. Are there IHRCA events in pakistan?

The guy from RCU said shipping is $35.00 from the Transaction Details at the top and then he has on the description below that shipping is $25.00. You know the RCU guy doesn't know what he is talking about or he wouldn't have put two shipping prices. Will just have to see what happends after the auctions end?

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

Ok I am confused.

So which guy is legit. First off not sure how he would ship from over seas for 25 or even 35 bucks, but on top of that do we know that rcuniverse does not use paypal. that would be nuts. I sure as hell don't ever send money via western union. That is scam scam scam. How dumb does he think we are?
I also find it really strainge that they are the same pictures. The description on Ebay sounds ok. The fact he listed scratches on the skids make it sound legit, but I wouldn't buy either. It is up to $425, and you are starting to get into the range of a new rappy now.

Additional Pics

Someone should ask for a new pic with something like a toothbrush in the pic, that'll shake out who's for real.

Hopefully it's not the same guy in the Army or something...

The Ebay seller!!! Nice guy really

Ok there fella. Before you go shooting your mouth off you ought to do a little investigation. Here are a few things to help that you seem to have overlooked in the RCU ad. First of all, the RCU ad is from Pakistan....why would you believe anything from there!?!? second of all he made an error when copying my ad. He forgot to remove "MY" shipping cost from the body, and he put his shipping cost as $35 ...thats 2 different shipping amounts if you lost track. Third of all....LOOK AT MY FEEDBACK ON EBAY!!!!! Fourth of all... he removed all of the bad things in my ad and sugar coated his. If you remember ... I listed the heli had a problem with the tail shaking and the boom supports were bent. He removed those things! Maybe you should do a little more investigating before you go e-mailing complete "AMERICAN" strangers and accusing them of being crooks while the Pakistani fella makes a quick $500 with a fake ad. (I bet your a democrat)

Have a good one!

PS: By the way you have been blocked from my e-mail so that no more of your harassing e-mails get through!

The Pakistani Seller (Wazeed something)

As for the eBay auction a buyer has alerted me about that and i have
emailed
both eBay and rcuniverse to look into this matter, since EVERYTHING has
been
virtually copied off my auction, even the auction description.

I will let you know as soon as this clear out. I am not concerned about
this
since i have made it known to the moderators that my original auction
was
opened up way before this two day old auction began.

Thank You

Perhaps the Pakistani one is so cheap cause he's lighting it on fire before he ships it to the US. Sounds about right
