Was approached by a man driving a new WHITE SUV in the parking lot of Home Depot in Kapolei, HI island of Oahu. He stated he was an AV installation technician with a local AV company and was on his way to an installation but his boss had made an error in the order and he had an "extra" projector that was worth $6500 and he wanted to sell it for $500 before he when to his next job. The brand was VisionMax model was HD3K. He even had a receipt showIng the price of $6500.

I was very skeptical because why would this random person who was essentially stealing from his company want to sell this supposed top of the line projector for $500. I told him a friend of mine may be interested and he said I should call them right away since he really had to get to the job site asap. After I called my friend and attempted to explain the specs of the projector he stated "I install these everyday let me explain it to him" and he did his pitch to my friend. After he was done I got bal in the phone and my friend stated he google the model and nothing came up how ever he found the website and a different model number Visionmax HD2K. He then googled HD2K an found a scam alert stating exactly what I was experiencing at that moment. I told the scanner that neither I nor my friend was interested and he stated that what if he sold it for $200 and I said no thanks. He was still persistent on the fact that he had a receipt showing $6500 an was just trying to help me get a great deal. I again declined and he left quite upset. Thank God foe the power of the Internet.

congratulations,

AUTHOR: Ronny g - (USA)

..for being skeptical of some guy in a parking lot selling something he openly admits is stolen property. Anyone can forge a receipt.

You used diligence to avoid being scammed..he would not have to sell a $6500 projector for $500 or $200 if it was worth more.

However you should not have even given this scammer the time of day as even if the internet search did not come up as a scam, or the projector model did show up online as worth $6500 (which could have been a phony website if it did), purchasing something this way would be a crime.

Even though the "story" the guy in the white SUV told you was the same "pitch" all these parking lot con men scammers use, for the sake of discussion let's assume it was true..

Someone initially had to have purchased it..just because his boss made an error in ordering does not give an employee the right to sell it in a parking lot. So anyone who would buy this projector, is guilty of a crime as well. Don't get me wrong..you did the right thing in the end..but it seems by calling your friend even though you were very skeptical, does imply you may have considered purchasing it if your friend said it was a good deal. Could have ended you up behind bars.
