    Default SOLID SNOW WHITE ATARI 2600 TELE SYSTEM--It's a fake!!

    Several weeks ago I asked for information on AA about a white Sear's Atari that was listed on eBay. Here's the link for the completed auction:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...e=STRK:MEWA:IT

    It went for the absurd price of $495--which is very high considering that many people on AA though it was a fake. I've checked the completed auction a few times to see if the seller left feedback for the buyer or vice versa and no feedback has ever been left either way. Today I checked the seller's other auctions and I came across this one:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=8127291697

    In this auction he's selling some broken toaster style Nintendos but there's two that are painted--one black and one white. I think these were either practice for the Atari, or he was also thinking about doing the same thing with a Nintendo. Thieving scumbag! The seller is
    pinheadkid. I would put him on your blackball list!

    On the other hand, that's a pretty good paint job
    I don't know about leaving the joystick top and front plate like that, but very impressed with the sticker removal and replacement on the bottom (one corner IS lifted though), and the telegames on the front looks VERY good.

    The lot of NES stuff auction isnt a bad deal actually. 7 units working or not and a bunch of games is worth 70 dollars.

    But the Atari auction is insane. Nice paint job though

    Wow! I just noticed (Didn't see it in the original thread) that seller lives about 30 miles "up the road" from me! I would've liked to have contacted him and seen it firsthand.

    This email was sent by an eBay member via eBay's email forwarding system. If you reply to the email, your response will go directly to the member and not through eBay.

    Message From eBay Member

    If this email is an offer to directly sell you an item without bidding on and winning the item on eBay, please report it to us immediately and do not respond. An offer to sell an item directly to another eBay member through email violates eBay rules. It is also extremely unsafe to purchase an item through this email system regardless of the seller's claims or feedback, as you lose the benefit of eBay's purchase protection programs and risk losing your money.

    Never pay for your eBay item through instant cash transfer services such as Western Union or MoneyGram. Such services offer Internet shoppers no protection against fraud.



    Dear hovocgsx,

    I did not purchase the Atari. Seller would not answer whether or not it was painted or not- just said it was white.

    Please respond to the question on eBay by clicking the button below.


    Thank you,
    svhcox
