I just found this ad on my local Craig's List today:

Brand New Sony A7R III Camera Digital and lens! - $800
Mirrorless Digital Camera With Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM w/ Godox!!!
(Never Used)!
Camera really new 0 clicks and works perfectly.!

Really... 0 clicks yet you know that it works perfectly? And for only $800? I had to double check that it wasn't posted on April 1st, but it was today's date.

How gullible do they think people are? Oh, wait a minute... there was just an article about a woman who sent $20,000 for good faith money to someone who texted her that she won a Publishers Clearing House drawing, so they are out there. Common sense isn't so common!

A year or so ago myself and the counter clerk at Krogers tried to talk a lady out of sending $2000 with Western Union to a lawyer so he could get her grandson out of jail. The clerk refused to take it and was still trying to explain why when I left but the lady still wasn't believing her.

Just picked up a VG-C77AM c/w with 1 battery & a genuine Sony handstrap for £50 delivered from CeX. Vgc but unboxed.
Already had a cheap knock-off grip but that has been a bit flaky at times - will now be demoted to the back-up body & this will see me right if I ever upgrade to an A99II ...

Even here in little ol' NZ (small market where asking prices tend to stay ridiculously high) we're starting to see this.
2 weeks ago bought a Sony 500 f/8 reflex for NZ$350 (US$233), and this afternoon I'm going to pick up a (used) Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di USD, model A011S for NZ$585 (US$390).

Good prices, Pirate. I paid a little more a few years ago for my copies of the first three.
Miranda F & Sensorex, Sony A58, Nex-6, Dynax 4, 5, 60, 500si/600si/700si/800si, various Sony & Minolta lenses, several Tamrons, lots of MF primes and *far* too many old film cameras . . .
