Marvelio on Amazon.

The guys sells vinyl and advertises he's in PA.  I placed an order for two records on March 31st and and received an email that they shipped on April 2nd.  I still have not seen these records.  His return address is a PO Box in Greensburg, PA.  That's 46 miles from my house.

Marvelio does not stock anything.  When you place your order, he places his order.  First law of economics, the middle man always makes out.

Why the dick?  There is no significant nerve point there.  Try the balls - that hurts like hell.

Most married men said goodbye to their balls along time ago.  And it's funnier to say punch in the dick then balls.  Jimmy P yes, you highly doubtful. 

I found their address and phone number anyway.  It's a little storage place off of 119.  I received one of the records today and it is intact but there is no true ship date on the label.  If you want to wait 2 weeks to get your purchase, they are the seller for you.

Rev, I've bought from him before.  Two weeks is unusual.  Usually a week to ten days.  He is not the fastest but his prices are decent.

Have you noticed the new Craigslist/eBay semi-scam?

I'd see these Craigslist ads and knew something was fishy, but hadn't looked into it until I came across one of MY OWN eBay ads, but with the user id omitted, and listed on Craigslist, in Texas!  Mind you, if it made the sale for me, it's hard to be mad, but...what if the buyer still thought it was Craigslist, or that the item was from some store??  I get negative feedback maybe??  I don't like it!  It's sneaky and underhanded...

read this and see whats going on:

http://cleveland.craigslist.org/ele/4458898686.html   ** It may not appear for an hour or so.  It's 1:30 PM, Weds 5/7/2014, right now. Should be up by 2:30 pm..**

Feel free to copy this general info and post anywhere you'd like, i.e. Pittsburgh cl, etc., etc.. 

What a lazy little scam they've got going!

Forgot to mention, in the 'burgh, they use " http://www.greatestsavingsdeals.com/" for their Craigslist links.  Just CL search and you'll find them.

On eBay: sum250sl.   Not a scammer (at least not yet), but a huge PITA who I strongly recommend not dealing with.

Anyone know anything about the CL lister in Monroeville?

You will know his ad as it reads like a whos-who of the 70's hi-fi era...

But maybe, maybe - if you're really, REALLY lucky - you will get a one syllable answer to a buy inquiry. Most of the time - nothing at all.

Sure makes me wonder...

Watch out for mark schang <166a5093f6b230b4895716c0ee79e75e@reply.craigslist.org>,

Not saying he's a scammer but the guy is trying to nickel & dime me for some speakers, asking if they're fully functional which I already noted in the ad and thinks I should throw in the speaker stands to boot.

I don't get why people think they should get something for next to nothing when the price is already fair.

Tell him that you have another buyer coming over in an hour, he needs to move fast or lose the speakers.  His choice.
