    Located in Indonesia? Not too sure about this. Maybe you may try askfor their website or shop name ( check whether they are real) There's a lot of fake online posting shops so just beware (since i'm frm Indo and quite aware of this thing) cheers

    Don't waste your time,
    this is 100% scam,
    everybody selling used D700 at $2k++,
    who will be so dumb want to sell a brand new D700 @ S$800 or S$900?

    fishy right?

    anyway the thread already long gone, so many members reporting scam alert on this thread.

    next time just use report post function on such scam threads. Hope no one falls into the scam.

    Located in Indonesia? forget it. you will never receive your set...

    I still remember the time when I was stationed in Indonesia.
    Ebay sellers simply refused to ship stuff to me over there, even when I'm paying via paypal with SG credit cards...

    Well.. Seriously why wont 1 even bother or believe such things.. How lucky do you think to find someone really letting go at that kinda price..And brand NEW everything in (really really hard..just forget it. quit looking and work hard save hard..easier and faster this way..)

    The same old saying goes..If the deal is too good to be true..then just ignore..

    If the offer is real, this is way below the apparent market price and the guy would be out of stock in a jiffy.

    a new D700 selling at S$800 or S$900, this is the clue of a scam.
    whether the camera is stock locally or oversea is irrelevant, of course an oversea address is not easy for you to track down.

    Scammer should upgrade their tactics already. Too low and people will realize its a scam... do some research and set the price few hundreds below normal price, then people won't suspect
