That's why I met him at McDonald's. I plugged it in and projected on the wall in there. We talked about an hour and went through the settings and other stuff. He also gave me the copy of the bestbuy magnolia receipt. He even had his daughter with him.
Im dealing with a different class of people with this stuff. I'm more middle class and not wealthy enough to afford this kind of item at regular price. He went from a epson 5040, to the jvc, then to a oled 77" in just a few years. He said he upgrades every year.
It was weird though he Was kinda offended that I wanted to meet at the police station, even though his wife didn't want Craigslist buyers to come in their home. He said he's never had any problems with buyers and always meets at bestbuy.
He is from Ireland and came here on 92 on a tennis scholarship. I kinda figured he was foreign but I never would have guessed Ireland.
I stayed on this deal for a weeks and it payed off. If he had listed it on here instead of craigslist, he could have gotten more money. But I don't think he has money problems.
99% of the time stuff like this is a scam, but every once in a while you can get lucky and catch a deal.
