    Hi, so if we buy cameras on here, make sure they have the boxes and stuff? I bought my first dslr from here and it seems the guy is doing mass sales of camera equipment and he is quite alright, been doing since 2010 and member here since 2007.. The box and the camera's serial no. matches so its okay right?

    This test is not foolproof. A thief could have stolen the box with the camera inside, from a shop.

    Shizuma, see what you have done.

    You have created fear from some sellers that they must claim that their gear are not stolen goods.

    some of them buy at a lower price than usual, then sell them for slightly higher price to make a few extra dollars.

    either that or they're rich wankers who just get bored of their toys easily.

    *edit* i meant bankers

    It turns out indeed that set is stolen and my Seller had no legal right to sell the set to me. an officer from Tanglin station is now end route to Jurong side to impound this sweet kit.

    see bay Sian.

    hope I can either get my money back or my kit (preferably!!!)

    buyer beware
    Oh my God. I've just bought this lot of gears from a roadside seller in a back lane along South Bridge Road for $800:

    Ookay, who wants to rub against my legs? I'd forget about all the disagreement we ever had.

    Unlikely they can trace your whatsapp, it's prob they've confiscated the Viet's HP, after the friend reported him. Else it'll be hard to find out who bought it. Hope you get the 60D back, it's really a good camera.

    Dude, I want both the 60D and the L lens I paid money for

    but getting 60D is also good enough...

    I am just hoping that if the Viet boy has got no $ to give me back, maybe the bailiffs can seize his assets such as a nice 70D and transfer it to me. I'm keeping my fingers crossed

    Oh

    I found the image of the guy who sold me the stolen image and lens (Now , I am not judging him guilty or accusing him of stealing. But it is a police-given fact that the camera and lens this guy sold to me was stolen).

    sorry to be unladylike. but here is the a554073!

    I feel pity for him now.

    I lost $650, but this poor fool go and throw away his future.
    I hope he can turn over a new leaf while having time to ponder his future.

    Maybe he be successful one day
