    Anyone here willing to buy an ECM for me, and forward it across the border? Ebay seller won't even sell it to me cause I'm registered as Canadian.... I'd just want you to buy it for me, recieve it at your place, then when you get the chance, drop it off at the post office to ship it my way via USPS air mail :)

    Of course, I'll cover all the costs of the ECM and shipping :D

    Here is the link:

    Thanks!

    Hey this sounds like one of those Nigerian scams! So are you going to pay me the money by certified check, for an amount $5,000 more than the purchase price?:D

    I'll do it, unless somebody closer to the border pipes up (shipping might be cheaper for you that way, I don't know)

    I was gonna offer $247,023,128.34 US dollars from my late second cousin's great aunt's brother's friend's uncle who was the king of Calgary. He left me his fortunes to invest in a trustworthy individual like yourself due to some saddening circumstances, but if all you want is $5,000, then sure!

    However, shipping should be within a few bucks from anywhere in the states, so I'd be happy to paypal you the cost of the ECM + shipping to your place as soon as you've paid the ebayer, then the cost of shipping my way right after you've re-shipped it :)

    Sure thing, I wonder if I can just pay for it using my name and info as the billing address, then yours as the shipping addy :thinking: If not, no biggie but just a thought, unless the seller pukes at it.

    Nope, seller won't ship to Canada at all, won't even let you place an offer etc if you are registered as Canadian :(

    Thats why I gotta go through someone in the states...

    Looks like garlicbreath beat me to the punch, but if that doesn't work for whatever reason then I'm up to the task :thumb:

    I've found this seller is really slow to respond, usually takes him a couple days... be best to just do the buy it now option before it ends on Wenesday, or someone else snags it
