Seller has 0 feedback, email from seller is selling a Panasonic Smart VIERA TX-P50ST30B for £399, i know its an older model but price sounds just to good to be true, price includes shipping and 2 year international warranty. amazon have asked that the payment be made via them into a Greek bank account, im just hesitating here, advice pls ? thanks

im just not to sure on this one, e mail from amazon.uk saying to make the bank transfer to someone in Greece ? that makes me suspicious. £390 for the tv with postage, this tv is still selling at £699 Panasonic Smart VIERA TX-P50ST30B 50-inch Full HD 1080p 3D 600Hz Internet-Ready Plasma TV with Freeview HD, something fishy i think even though i would have the A-Z protection, im pondering on just giving this one a miss !
Bought some thermal copy paper last week and it was fake,seller has 4.6 feedback on over 300 sales, now I have to go to post office to return it and wait for my money
my experience with market place has been a joke, Amazon didn't want to offer any help when my item didn't arrive. lost my money. I don't know what Amazon fulfillment is supposed to stand for.

Im so glad i wrote to you guys as now my mind is made up, was also doing a bit of searching online and some folk not having good experience's. the international warranty its meant to come with, it will probably be in greek lol I sure wont be buying. the tv's that were showing last night have all mysteriously gone, yeh something sure fishy, would rather pay the extra money and get piece of mind, will update the post with any replies from seller as have mailed her ant told he no thank a lot :0)
sound dodgy, best to keep clear.
i would say too risky! tc

If it is fake/counterfeit, it is illegal to post.
Can you risk losing that money?
Never bought from the market place, but if you pay on your credit card, you should be able to make a claim off the credit card should something go wrong.

I spoke to someone at Amazon and was told to post it back and it would be ok because It was a return

no who am i kidding £400 is a lot of money to lose , ive done a lot of searching online re being scammed on Amaz and it can happen so defo no to this deal , thanks all , back to looking for my new 51 ich tv lol
Just because it is a greek bank account you will still have your amazon protection on the purchase and some protection if you pay by credit card. Much rather deal with Amazon customer service at any level than for example buy from a Ebay and Paypal.

They are asking for the payment to be put directly in a Greek bank account which by passes an Amazon representative ! No TV in basket stating the tv from this seller is no longer available from this seller. Also the order number is not to be found. I have since spoken to amazon live and its a scam, my gut was right, they now need the emails etc
thanks to all for your input, thank fully i never parted with any money
