I bought a pioneer SX-1250 off craigslist. It was listed at $800 and I thought I was getting a good deal at $750. I had the seller send me videos of it working prior to buying it. I did share with the seller that I resale most of my purchases and 10% goes to St. Judes Childrens Hospital. I thought he agreed to $750 instead of $800 from a good place... After getting the receiver home, it did not pass protection mode. Physically it looks in good condition and I don't see anything obviously wrong inside. But at a minimum I estimate it will cost me $200-$300 to have repaired, perhaps more. So I probably did not lose all my money... After looking again at the video he sent, the guy gave me a different receiver than the one in the video he sent. The wood grain is clearly different. And the one he gave me has a scuff on the etched SX-1250 and the vidoe does not. Also the one he gave me has some dirt and a dead bug behind the glass, the one in the video does not. I should have sniffed his out as I asked to meed at Starbucks so I could do a quick power on check. He objected and got frustrated. He said why did he spend the afternoon making and sending the video. He stated he would sell it to another buyer for the full $800 who would also come to his house. He was only selling it to me as I was first in line. So I caved and agreed to meet him at the original location where I would not be able to test it. Lesson learned, do not get overly excited when buying something and not check it out in person. I requested a full refund and I return the receiver. Also offered a 1/2 refund and I keep the receiver. No response from the seller from email or text. Who has more than one SX-1250 to pull this type of scam anyway? Pretty good scam I suppose. I am still hoping this is resolved fairly but it does not seem to be heading that direction. I'll file a police report but will be surprised if it goes anywhere. Still also hoping this was sometype of mistake and not intentional act. Be on the watch out for a big and heavy set guy in a black ford flex with custom wheels in the Bedford / Fort Worth, Texas area. If it proves to be a mistake and resolved fairly, I'll post it was.
