    Excerpt from one of those giant block of text yard/estate sale ads...

    "Singer sewing machine's with the pump no electric pugs works great and a brother,white, ones too with hand carved drawers just two of them other is portable."

    Must be one of those hydraulic Singers with the manual pump...I'd high tail it up there if they had the electric pugs but without them the machine is probably useless. You hardly ever see them separately on eBay.

    Don't bother looking for the machine or the cabinet, this pot head only has a little book in very poor condition

    Before you scoff

    Imagine what your portfolio would be worth is they get this price!

    Well according to CL
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    It looks old but I ain't so sure. Does that help any?
    Would you prefer "Might be a sewing machine or something like that but I don't sew so I know nuthing!!!"

    I could probably get by with at least a picture, if for nothing else, to make sure I am not buying wine or cheese.

    My bet is that you'd be happier with wine or cheese!

    LOL. Did you message them about their "silver and gold (okay, a bit of black) - RARE" machine?

    So let me get this straight: You lied to me (it's new, well not really)? you don't know what it does? And you don't have it? (I will get it later on) and I'm reasonably sure no one on this continent writes a phone number that way.

    Sounds like a heck of a deal. I better jump on this one.
    they put the phone # that way so that it doesn't get picked up, lots say test + #'s . the # is 1-780-224-8773. rather than write seven 8 zerotwo two four-887Three or something like that. no scammers need apply?

    No. I figured they would (rightly) feel really stupid.
    When I pull anyone up on something they usually just get angry at me, like it was me who made them this dumb! Guess that's just shooting the messenger.
    I haven't added it up but I'd imagine the Singer 66 is the most common model of any sewing machine ever made in history.

    Someone can neither read nor write, nor take photographs but knows numbers...2 and 5 at least.

    I looked through the other listings and I think it's code. Someone in stuck in a paneled room somewhere, apparently strapped to a massage table (there is no picture of that either), with a mirror nearby....

    They "know what it's worth" but make them an offer. Always makes me want to offer $20. They have 3 listings for this too.
