    Quoted from La4s:

    About 6 months ago I was the first at an estate sale to look at a machine in which they originally wanted $2000 for. I left my offer, which was signficantly less than the asking price. The guy running the estate auction said he had been getting calls and higher offers all week. Two days later, I get a call asking if I would still like the machine at my asking price. Maybe the the guy was b.s.ing me about the offers, but if they were real offers none of them were serious, otherwise I wouldn't have the machine today.

    The people that run these estate sales are such lying sacks of sh-t. It's almost like there's a script that they read:

    - Whatever condition the machine is in, they will ALWAYS tell you that "we were just playing it last night", or that "it was just working this morning", even if it's obvious that the batteries are dead or worse and the machine is unplayable.

    - They will ALWAYS tell you that they already have "several much higher offers" from people that are ALWAYS coming in from out of state.

    - Their ads ALWAYS state "no previews" and "no early birds" but even if you're first in line on the day of the sale, half the time the machine is already sold.

    Don't believe a word that they tell you.
