    Quoted from mamemaster:

    Update - a connection of mine who knows both of us jumped in and smoothed things out after I told the seller I was going to move on. It was really nice (and unexpected!) of him to do that....I trust this particular contact of mine and he's been a good guy to buy from in the past.
    I would be happy if this works out.....if it weren't for my contact I would have not even considered moving on this....

    I dont care if your mom was the mutual friend. He pulled a scumbag move and I would have said no thanks. I can appreciate the 500 bucks your saving but, you said you can buy it new. It's not a piece that's only comes along once a year and you need to jump on it. I'm a pretty easy guy to get along with but when someone jerks me around it becomes an instant black ball on all future deals.
