[Corion]: Meh, I found another Amazon "used" scam reseller... If a product sells for "almost new" at half the price, it's a scam, most likely...
[ambrus]: Corion: that's not true. Actually for Christmas and Thanksgiving, a lot of people buy electronics such as cameras as present, then many of them figure out they don't need it,
[ambrus]: and the electronics gets reselled almost new, but it has to be sold at half price because otherwise everyone chooses to buy the new product which has fewer risk of selling damaged products labelled as almost new.
[ambrus]: You can actually get a lot of useful cheap really almost new products that way, with only a little risk of scams.
[ambrus]: That's what some of the "Black Friday" sales are about.
[Corion]: ambrus: Well, usually, these people don't have in their description "mail me at dodgy_reseller # g m a i l | co m" , replace the "#" by "@" :)
