    Are you sure this isn’t an urban legend (citation/link please)… if it’s true how did the guy even notice he was taken.

    They are people who like to buy used. I have a neighbor who is always asked for used laptop. We always have good laugh of those people, but we made good money. I sold all the laptops from my friends and we told to the customers: they are old, no warranty on any thing. They don’t care because they think they are making an excellent deal.
    Sometime a new one is only 100 bucks over with 12 months warranty. So the buyer of this life time deal was certainly one of those deal lovers.

    This is why you don’t buy stuff off Craig’s List.

    Dumbasses are treated like dumbasses, only a complete idiot buys a laptop from a stranger at a fillingstation. Got what he asked for. This is non-news.
