You also went out of your way to change your ICON to an image of a friendly looking person before posting, even though you have never posted in this forum before. A very likely story.
You are not as smart as you think you are, bye bye :P
Then you contradict yourself by saying you are NOT for this projector, when you just said it was so "bad---", using a curse word in the process (not a big deal, but another sign of a scammer is to try to over-excite). It's all about the psychology, you fit a specific profile and will use specific techniques, we see the same thing all the time. Go scam some dumber people, you're in the wrong place and will never make any money off this scam. Give it up, and go get a real job, eventually it will come back to haunt you in your prison cell...
If you happen to be one of the statistical exceptions and the 1 in 20 legit people that just did everything exactly like a scammer would by coincidence, then you have my apologies, lol...
If you were really taken by the scam, it would have been off Ebay and not by a 'friend' (umm, I mean acquaintance, umm I mean friend). So the sales pitch of your friend got you, this makes so much sense.
You also used specific wording to try to "re-pitch" the projector in a favorable light if it were ONLY $600-$700 (like $600 would be a good deal and like that's pocket change), as if you were actually knowledgeable about what makes a good deal for a projector, in which anyone that fell for this scam would know as much about projectors as a Native Elder Tribesman that has never left his village in the past 80 years. It would be very unlikely someone that just got taken for $600 (by a friend none-the-less) to feel so satisfied by a piece of junk and to encourage others of how it is a good deal (but only for $600). So you are happy with a scam product and happy that your friend scammed you.
There are more inconsistencies in your post than the fur of a dog that has mange.
