Hello,

When this ad appeared I reacted immediately with an offer to buy this telescope. Payment only by Paypal. I also asked for his address and telephone number in order to check his identity before sending off the money. After 5 days I got no reply,even after a reminder mail.
Ginomy has no ratings and his offer was very tempting at this low price. His silence is very suspicious so I gave him a 1* rating.
I think this ad is a possible scam, so be careful. I hope I am wrong...

While its great that you reported the potential scammer it has always been the rule here that you dont issue bad ratings against someone you did not actually complete a transaction with....Just a heads up.
