No, definitely a wind-up, says so on the box.

That's a standard shipping service being used isn't it? $90? Why?

8O    WOWSERS............    8O

I would not want to pay just the shipping alone, much less the BIN of $10,000.
As an aside; I would think that a normal person would feel he should ship for free if the BIN was used..... :roll:

The rest of this morons auctions are similarly rediculous.

The seller has just listed ANOTHER of these "One of a kind" products. $10K again, well it's a unique item after all!

Maybe it will be hand carried by a courier on a budget air flight!  :)

pernicious = wicked

con = swindle

This was weird not much for its price, but rather... have you ever seen so many snipes on a meaningless module?

He told me the $60 was for 10,000 in insurance. Can you insure for 10k?

Dead you can but only for verified values.  I think the Post Office, Fed Ex, UPS, etc...usually only insure for $100 unless the value is for something that has a concrete reciept, like say a $5000 Dinning set or something, or if you have a bonified piece of art or collectible that has a certified value (Baseball cards or comics are an example of a collectibles that can have certified values, or a painting sold at a prestigious auction).

I dont believe you can just insure it for any old amount, because that would have the word "Scam" written all over it hehehe.

You can only buy insurance up to $5000 from USPS. The guy is a complete doink, look at the crap he sells, dollies and star wars goodies.  Do we look that dorky to people outside our hobby when we pay $2000 for a woodgrain?  I guess so.  Difference is, Doink's items are graded and placed in unopenable plastic containers (check a few of his higher priced auctions), the true mark of Scamdom the world over (overpaying for grading services).

I reported that tool for excessive shipping.  I would love to make that guy an "insulting" low offer like $1, but I would not want to pay that shipping on the case that he took me up on it!

Mike, Im not 100% positive but I think you can get more if you send it registered mail, like 20-25k or some such.  The only reason I remember is a couple of years back I helped my father ship some artwork he purchased in Hong Kong.  When they discussed insurance the Post Office agent said it could be covered up to that amount but to collect my dad would have to prove value.  I could be wrong though if things changed, as they do on me all the time   8O  

Your right though, that guy is a doink   :lol:
