This sounds weird. I have done deals with stachu forever and always been good.
(actually about to send a CSPPC to him for a CPU socket change in some days and I trust him completly)

Is it possible this is load of bollocks designed to make stachu look bad?

I personally have bought a blizzard 1260 from him in 2016.. that card was the reason i started the TF project but i never had issues with the card.

EDIT: I've removed Stachu from the subject until its proven a bit better

I agree that this looks really bad on him but locking the thread on a1k didn't probably help his cause.
Personally I've only had good experiences with him and only just today picked up some stuff he sent.

He already "helped" more that 20 persons to lose their money, what kind of help is needed now?

You are right, he exactly knew what he was doing, he admitted it all in the post.
Cynically admitting that in a post designed to keep some of the money.
One is sure I would never trust him to buy anything more expensive than box of matches.

I dont get this. All the people have to do is file an ebay claim and they'll get all their money back. even if they've had a "refund" elsewhere they'll get all their money back... This whole thing doesnt feel right to me.

also "untested" isn't that a more or less guarantee that "fucked up as hell"?

Also at these prices... why not just buy a brand new 060?

Hello everyone, just wanted to post an update about the user backintime32, the incident that started this thread. He contacted me recently and we had a long discussion. Bottom line is he apologized for everything, paid for the first card and bought another one from me.

He was determined to set things right. I am very grateful for this and consider this matter now closed. I removed his personal identification details as I don't think the incident should stay on his record, we all make mistakes.

Thank you again.
