Oh, further checking shows it looks like a bit of a scam. I'd keep clear of this.

Warning about Gumtree. There are innumerable scammers who post ads there. I've been caught out myself once. Great community trading site, horrible for trading between parties not in the same location. If you're in the area, have a look at this '645D' yourself.

I think that's why he chose Hull as a location. Hull is all very nice but it's a bit random. Discovered the very individual photo also appears on a Hong Kong ebay listing so walk away....

The 645D has come down in price but not to this extent! This isn't even an error. Either a scam or someone with stolen goods who diesn't know the real value

It's just an attempt to direct you to a scam website. The Hull thing is just a place they picked at random. No 645d here......

Nobody gets the price this far wrong. I'd be interested in how this deal will work however to the seller's advantage. What happens if you ask for the address, then tell the seller that you will visit for a look before going any further with the transaction?
