I don't know who's who anymore but from the picture I can see "Coastermonger".

Craiglist's link:
http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/sys/3710377659.html

A quick google search and I found an eBay link:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Avalon-ASIC-Batch-2-Bitcoin-Mining-Rig-BTC-/321096474742?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4ac2d76076

eBay user: Coastermonger
http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/coastermonger?_trksid=p2047675.l2559

These link to the fact that the machine is maybe in Indiana and some guy in orangecounty is trying to sell it as well? I emailed the guy from craigslist and gave him my phone number and we talked for an hour. I recorded ~30min.

His number 760-705-8888 - Apparently scammers use this phone number after I looked into it!

He said:

  • He was in the underground business for selling FPGAs
  • He just relocated to Nevada
  • The price was negotiable and so he lowered it to $2000...
  • Called me the next day and said someone was also interested in buying it for 10BTC but I can have it first for 10BTC.
  • He wasn't technical so that's why he's selling it.
  • He knows Coastermonger in Indiana.
  • I asked him how is he selling FPGAs if he wasn't technical. He said I know how to put the motherboard / graphics cards / CPU / RAM together on an FPGA - LOL!

The whole point of this post is to warn everyone. I don't know if this is Coastermonger or someone trying to scam through him etc. Coastermonger's phone is listed in the eBay page. I tried calling but no pick up.
