If it wasn't for the fact that I just recently got this compaq, I'd of taken you up on the offer. I know how money problems are. Eck.

Also, have you attempted Ebay or something of the sort? People buy laptops and refurbish or take out parts from them all the time.
I posted on craigslist. I had two follow ups. One that I think is a scam cause they offered more than what I was selling it for and their email handle was moore toes. hahah.

and some other lady, but I think it's to big for her needs. I bet she wants one of those eees or the new dells, but they won't be droping in price for a while.

I havent posted on ebay because I thought you had to have some money up front to post it initially and I don't have any money for that.
I tried to find similar listings on half.com or amazon but didnt find any.

I think that if this laptop was reformated it would work like brand new. I never used it for anything other than casual user stuff. Web, upload pics and music, stuff like that. If you know anyone that can give my baby a good home send em my way. I would love to get out of debt by the end of the month.


anyways. end rant. Seems like you and I always get in convos on my LJ community posts. :)
Hi, thanks for your response.. Paypal is very easy and secure to set up.. Its just a few clicks away and all you need do is just refer to www.paypal.com.. I will pay $450 including shipment.. I actually wanted to pay you via Paypal because i am presently out of town(+447045737016) and the item will have to be shipped directly from you to my fiance in West Africa via USPS (Express Mail)..I will only need your Paypal email address only to effect payment for the item after you might have set up your account.. Thanks, i willwait to read from you as soon as possible in order to make payment right away..



thats a response I got on craigslist...sounds scammy right? Why would someone in west africa want to buy my computer.

PLUS. Isn't that where uganda is and stuff, I wouldn't want my computer to support some genocide effort!
Hm, that is kind of awkward. Yeah, I would deal with that business.

Sorry to hear the hunt isn't going well, I'll keep an eye out for ya.

Also, I quite enjoy our conversations. (Even though they've been about stuff like fail-ass financial aid.)

(and on a semi-awk note: I just realized I've seen you lord knows how many times on campus. I used to work for lolhousing and saw ya in the main office at times.)

Wow, I feel like a creeper. Oh well. Hai der, LJ.
Hey there saveasbroken. I posted my computer up on craigslist today and within 3 hours got this e-mail. It's totally a shi* spam mail. In fact, I replied to the person stating that I know they are full of it.
