Well well well...looks like laptop_broker is lurking in these forums....I just recieved an email from him. I'll let you guys come to your own conclusions...
My reply is at the underneath
"Yup…sure did post it. I find it highly ironic that other people have the same “problem”. Unfortunately you are incorrect that it’s libel or slanderous as I stated that I would create a website that lists all of our correspondence that I have. If you want to rip other people off, go ahead but hopefully they will learn from my, and others misfortune. What’s funny is I would going to email you the link when you sent this email. I think two totally different people, in different states that have been lied to by you in regards to the same item only solidifies my case. In the meantime, I will post your email to that topic and let people judge it themselves. Have a nice day!

This look familiar?
So, did you buy from laptop_broker last night? Thats the only person to have ever sold a 9800 on ebay. If this is true, he has been jerking me around for two weeks. Let me know.

You too! I purcased a 9800 from him on the 12th and was told he would ship it in a week because of a funeral. Well it's been two weeks now and I'am still out of almost $500. We have been exchanging bitter emails back and forth after three attempts to collect either the Radeon or money. If you guys have any questions about this guy please feel free to email me. All I can say is STAY FAR AWAY. I have kept all our correspondence and emails archived if anyone wants to review them. I demanded a refund which amazingly is in the process. If you paid via paypal, don't let this game get past 30 days otherwise you'll be SOL on recovering your money. That's so ironic that other people have been waiting the exact same amount of time as I. Hopefully my refund will be posted very soon afterwards I will make a website that shows the emails, the hassles, and the excuses that have taken place. Luckily I only live about 60 miles from him so worse case I would of taken him to small claims. Get your money while you can
Go ahead, make a website slamming me, keep posting this kind of stuff. Liable/Slander is very, very easy to prove. Making a website would just further my case. I don't know why you keep forcing the issue, but just keep it up.
