That's an astonishingly good price - maybe too good.

Perhaps it was originally from some guy in Thailand who wants a bank transfer...

We have enough members in Melbourne - one of them can offer to drop by and see it!

At that price I could fly to Melbourne and pick it up - and still be ahead!

Yes, but after a 24-hour flight, do you think it will still be there waiting?

EDIT: twitch, Voe, DanielT74, and many others live in the area, if anyone is truly interested in seeing if this is a scam.

Looks like it was either sold or withdrawn.
