Its funny...all the Bold's I have seen for sale...the price is always $250. Do the crooks have some system to their pricing?

Their pricing is based upon your greed to purchase an unreleased device below the cost of retail. It's a hook that has been used for many years.

They probably won't accept local payment/pickup either right? I bet they would prefer it if you would just E-mail them the ABA Routing Number and Account Number for your checking account, and then they can electronically withdraw the $250.00.........just like an electronic check!!! Steer clear.
