    I think we should beware of such ads. Quite likely it involves money transfers to abroad upfront..

    the other party also trying their luck...... to look for some victims.


    anyway, not sure your people notice? some members never step foot outside personal classified section.
    So no matter how many times we post such warnings is still have people fall into it.
    thank to many vigilant and helpful members, spotting and reporting such scammers, to make our forum a better and safer place.

    a few tell tale signs of such scammers,

    #1, Unbelievable low price deal.
    #2, newly registered member, usually less than a week or same day, with no post history
    #3, foreign contact or only contact mode is via email


    to confirm you have spotted such fraud deals, just cut and paste their email address and certain unique key phrase, do Google search, these scammers posted same ads all over the internet, you will also notice they also sell iPhone, iPed, Sumsang phone, all the most popular gadgets and merchandise.

    even if the price is really $428, i wouldnt buy it. the image quality of the 7D is really bad. in fact, it's about the same as the 50D except with more controls.

    the 7D is a fair weather camera that's capable to handle only events in good lighting condition. once the place gets dark, u would wanna junk it away.. and yes, it cant even handle DND events properly. the moment when u need to raise the iso to 1600 or 3200 to capture the ambient lighting - the image quality and dynamic range drop like crazy...

    Precisely that's the point! You have nailed it yourself! The 7D is old already and the image quality is so poor - that's why there's nothing "eye opening" or surprising about the $428 price!

    If anything at all surprising - it would be why is the seller selling so expensive?! $428 for that kind of quality and age?!

    What is the point of discussing 7D on this thread?

    to educate scammers to come out some "better offer" that nobody can resist?

    how about putting some efforts on preventing more people fall into such traps!
