My guess is that it's a liquidator who is marketing his service under the
guise of a business owner who has gone out of business, or possibly even
someone who is going to "broker" items that he saw on an ebay auction for a
price higher than he will have to pay himself.
That's just a guess, mind you, but there seem to be quite a few MMF schemes
that encourage such creative uses of shady marketing popping up these days,
and plenty of suckers who try to implement them. Caveat emptor.
Not really, I know people in Germany with an AOL address. And, I'm in
the US, and post from a German newsserver. But, just as in technical
groups when people ask about a problem and don't specify, that means they're
running Windows, if someone doesn't say where in the world they are,
they're probably in the US. Hard to say if this guy is clueless, a spammer,
and/or both, but in any case it's not looking favorable.

that most folks are who and what they say they are, and regardless I

You have no right to post assumptions about me with no basis for making
them. I believe you should post an apology for your unwaranted
comments, and please try not to be so judgemental in the future.
Obviously you have no serious interest in my equipment or you would
have taken 20 seconds of your useless time to e-mail me and find that I
am absolutely as I represent myself.
Don't you have anything better to do with your time than to trash a
legitimate post? AOL has served us well for over 10 years. What's
your problem? Had you taken less time than it took to write your
hateful post, and e-mailed me, you would have found that I am exactly
as I represent myself.
Who are you talking to? WTF is with people being all uppity while not
including any quoting or context here lately?
On the off chance that you're talking to me, no I don't apologize for
my statement that it's likely that since you don't say, you're probably
in the US.
So let me get this straight. You post a vague message with no useful
details, at least 3 people try to figure out WTF you're talking about,
and you're taking an attitude with the group?
No kidding. It never ceases to amaze me that people continue to post
"for sale" ads for items weighing thousands of pounds, to a GLOBAL
forum, and not a hint of their location. Then the guy replies TWICE and
still no location.
Maybe his customers couldn't find him?
Let's get this straight. There's nothing vague about my message. It's
short and to the point. Legitimate people should e-mail me for details
and many have and I've sold several items.
As to my reasons for selling, it's none of your gutter minds business,
but I'll say it anyway. I've been in business for over 30 years and
its time to move on. I have sold part of business to a customer and am
liquidating everything he doesnt want.
It would take far less time to make a legitimate inquiry about what I
have to offer, as many have done, than to attempt to trash me with your

A hell of a salesman, you are.
Yes, I am a hell of a salesman. I learned 40 years ago how to recognize
idiots. Aparently some folks are not aware that trucks run all over
North America hauling all kinds of heavy stuff, and there are even ways
now to get heavy stuff to other continents.
