I just found this story funny and decided to share it here. I was over on DPReview reading a thread where a guy was all excited that he got a great deal on some m43 gear (actually, it was more of a steal than a deal, but a win is a win, right?). He wanted to share his excitement with others on the deal he got (nothing wrong with that, we have a similar thread here on these forums). Said he found the deal on Craigslist, and when he met up with the individual it was an elderly man who had trouble getting around due to hip issues, and couldn't use his camera gear anymore, so he decided to sell it and let somebody else enjoy it. Nothing wrong or fishy about that story, we've seen it here where elderly people switch to m43 because of the physical demands of shooting with larger format gear, and eventually they need to sell their m43 gear or give up photography entirely. The initial responses were pretty typical, congratulating him on his purchase, telling him he got a great price, blah blah blah. Then this guy chimes in and asks if there were was any bill/invoice/receipt. I replied back saying that this was an old man making a deal on CL, and it was very unlikely that there was any proof of purchase. I was thinking he was just being a jag-off, questioning the OP as to whether or not he actually got the gear for that price. But then it took an odd turn, where he said that the gear might have been stolen (mind you, this is a man who can't really get out and take photographs anymore, yet someone is thinking he might have stolen the gear and made a quick get away with it). Someone else then chimes in and says that maybe they're a drug dealer, or selling it for drugs. Again, this is an old man who probably doesn't live near a major metro area, and we now have people talking about how he might have stolen the gear and is flipping it on CL to fund a drug habit. At this point, I called these people crazy, claiming that they likely have watched one too many conspiracy theory shows on the History channel. They come back with "why didn't he take it to a pawn shop, or sell it to KEH?". I just had to laugh at this (although it is kind of scary), and question as to whether this is really where we are in our society today. Are we going to question an old man with a physical disability why he's selling his gear on CL, jumping to conclusions that he's stolen it and is using it to fund a drug habit? It's obvious that there are people who are this delirious, but am I the only one who thinks these people are a bit crazy for jumping to this "stolen and selling for drug money" scenario, just because this man didn't have receipts for the stuff he was selling?
