Slimline Silver PS2 professionally modified with a "Ghost2" chip £95.00

Hi,

I have a Slimline Silver PS2 (UK) professionally modified with a "Ghost 2" chip:

<<< Images posted below; the [IMG]...[/IMG] tags do not seem to work anymore!?! >>>

I know these these photographs are poor, so please ask if you need any more.

The Version Information screen for this console reports the following:

Console SPCH-75003
Browser 1.40
CD Player 2.00
PlayStation Driver 2.00
DVD Player 3.11E
MAC Address 00:15:C1:39:82:3E

Also included is one official silver PS2 controller, the original PS2 cardboard box, and the (UK) AC adapter.

No "backups" are included with this listing as that would be against the forum rules.
I can advise a buyer where to obtain some of these items, if desired.

May I suggest £95 + £10 Royal Mail Special Delivery/packaging costs to a UK destination?
Not looking for any trades, thank you - payment by PayPal only for ease/speed/security.

Yes, I know PayPal charge a ridiculous fee for doing nothing, but sending cash & cheques by snail-mail, and accepting Bank Transfer payments has caused me so much grief in the past I am sticking with PayPal.

Should you wish to receive this item in time for Christmas, then PayPal is going to help here too.


Please let me know if you are interested. Or don't add a comment if you're not.

Thanks.

BFN,

fp.
Shipping/Payment:
Payment to my verified PayPal account only.
Despatch to a UK address by Royal Mail Special Delivery (fixed cost: £10.00 extra).

Hi,

Thanks for your interest.

Do you have any feedback on any other forum I can review, for example, payment history &/or trading history? Perhaps you have an eBay account, or you a member of another buying/selling forum?

I mean no disrespect, but given as the above post was your first [Welcome to HotUKDeals, btw!], I obviously do not wish to lose my console in some dodgy trade, as such occurrences are typical as this time of year.

Thanks for any reassurances you can provide.

If you do not have any recorded feedback, perhaps I could ask you to relay your personal details (Name, Address, Landline number, and so on) to me via "Private Message".

All other correspondence should be kept in-thread until we reach an agreed deal, though.

Hope you appreciate why I am being cautious.

BFN,

fp.

(Duplicate of the reply via "PM")

Hi,

Thanks for your message.

Of course I would expect payment first... but in advance of that please could you send me a message from your eBay account to my eBay account (same user name as here) so I can verify the details you have provided?

Is your PayPal account verified? Should the payment be in a "pending" state awaiting clearance for whatever reason, I will, obviously, wait until the payment has cleared until I despatch the PS2 & items to you.

Thanks for your continued interest. I can despatch tomorrow if we conclude successfully this evening.

I would also need your name, address (for delivery), and a contact number (landline, preferably). I can return the same information of mine to you also.

BFN,

Hi,

I'm received your subsequent "PM" informing me that you sent a message to my eBay account from yours. I also note your comments that your PayPal account is a Premier account.

I'm sorry, but I have not received any eBay-related messages at all.

Would you mind sending again?

Also, if you're prepared to send me 1p by PayPal, I'll send you one back again, just to prove the accounts are genuine.

I'm sorry for the hassle - I trust you appreciate why it is important to take a cautious approach.

BFN,

OK, noted, thank you.

No deal has been reached yet. So feel free to make an offer & I'll review each offer on the parties own merits.

That said, I so have a potential offer of £100 delivered subject to prove of trading history & relaying of the interested party's contact details (that I still do not have, other than PayPal e-mail address).

As you were experiencing difficulty contacting me from your eBay account, I sent you a message from mine to yours.

Have you received it?

Hi,

I've received your eBay-sourced message, thank you, and your subsequent "PM" seeking a conclusion to the sale soon as you wish the items for Christmas.

(Again, please note: All correspondence should be kept in-thread except sharing of personal data... unless you are the UK government & fancy a holiday in Ohio, or use unrecorded deliveries in the UK, of course)

I've just "PM"'ed my PayPal e-mail address so you can send me a low payment (say, of one penny), and I'll return this to you.

If you could also return your full name, home address & landline telephone number we can progress to a sale; I can call you on this number to verify it is active.

(Hopefully nobody else will come in & offer my original asking price before then).

BFN,

fp.

Got your PayPal payment of 1p, thanks.

"Seller Protection Policy: Ineligible"

as

"Postal Address: No Address Provided"

But PayPal did confirm you are a verified buyer.

OK, sounds like we have a deal at £100 including Royal Mail Special Delivery.

Or, rather £99.99 :)

If you'd like to send me the outstanding balance, your name, address & landline number (as I think I've asked for lots of times now), I'll call you to confirm.

Sorry for the delay... but I hope you appreciate why I am being cautious.

BFN,

PS. I'm going out in 20 minutes, and will not be back until at least 8:30-9pm.

Any payment made (to my pre-provided PayPal e-mail address) will be noted later this evening & I can then despatch by Special Delivery tomorrow, so you should get the console by Thursday, or Friday at the very latest (depending whether I despatch tomorrow morning, or after 2pm-ish tomorrow; although I will endeavour to visit a Post Office tomorrow AM).

Thanks again for your interest.

Hi,

Are you still interested, nrotherham?

Or do I need to refund your 1p PayPal payment?

Please let me know either way.

Yup... taking postage into consideration I made a loss on selling the console against what I paid for it :(

I got to keep all the titles I acquired with it though, but now have no modified console to play them on.

Ho-ho-ho hum.

Always the sign of a good seller, someone who is happier taking a hit when things go wrong.
You do make me laugh, 'counter representative' indeed!
have a great Christmas pal :)

Yes, I could've sent my Parcel Force for a tenner cheaper, but I know that if they damage or lose it in transit it will take 8 weeks to recover the costs.

I typed "counter representative" as the "Post Office" I went to is inside Asda, so I'm not sure who they work for... probably Post Office Limited (or Post Office Counters Limited)... hence "counter representative" :)

Either way... let's hope the PS2 gets there in one piece & makes the hassle & expense worthwhile.

Thanks for stopping by, billyX... hope you had a pleasant festive season too.
