eBay Scammers and Carefully Worded Auctions

Ahhh, eBay sellers.  Just another reminder to all to verify what you are buying, as people like this are still out there scamming.  They also seem to get very angry when you call them on their scam.

This particular buffoon lists in his auction:

—–

NO TRASH HERE!

Fully tested before stored in a climate controlled storage unit.

We go over all features of our units including but not limited to primary and secondary button features cd changer features clock features full amplifier testing to assure proper function at maximum output.

SIMPLY UNPLUG YOUR OLD ONE AND YOUR NEW ONE WILL FIT RIGHT IN!

This model radio does nothing but show “CODE” on the display unless you input the security code after the power has been disconnected from it.  Based on my below “conversation” with this seller, it’s pretty obvious that they couldn’t have possibly tested any of what they said since they don’t have the code.

I’ve left the name in order to not protect the guilty.

Dear rmorales319, 

I though your listing said “NO TRASH HERE!”. The radio is a useless brick without the security code.
