A buyer doing a pretty good impression of an awe-shucks newbie wanted to buy my mount, but only communicated over the message system, despite my request that he email a response to my ad. He wanted to do a bank transfer where he would hand the phone to the clerk at the bank and I would give the female voice my account number and possibly my life savings. When I balked and tried to get him to go thru his claimed Praypal account, he in turn backed out of the deal. To date, I still do not know his email address or contact info, leaving open the possibility it is fraud.
"--Granted, that's a worse case scenario. The destruction might in fact be ... limited to our own galaxy."
