Hmmm got a reply and it definitely sounds shady. She's kinda skipped the whole thing of shipping, and whether or not she wants items I mentioned were avail seperately or not, but I don't think there's any harm in testing the waters or having fun.
USED 6.5" WIDE SCREEN and touch screen motorized mp3/dvd capable head unit. 50x4 with 3 preout's capable of playing nearly any type of disc or format. 1 aux A/V input and 1 aux A/V output.. Unit has tons of features included, with the ability add on endless more. I also have the Alpine full-speed iPod cable (KCE-422i) and the alpine bluetooth cellphone interface module (KCA-100BT), available seperately if interested. Items are used but in excellent condition!!!

Hi,how was the condition of this item ? can the item be suitable for a Xmas gift?and i want to know if you accept paypal
I then replied with: Hi Sandra,
You may view pictures of the IVA-W200 at the link below. I donít readily have pictures available of the iPod cable, Bluetooth device or wiring but I can take some if need be. There are some marks on the unit from where it was installed, but the interface itself is in excellent condition. The wiring has been cut a little as it was installed, but is definitely useable.
Today I received this email (from a different email address for some reason): From: firstname.lastname@example.org

If you get screwed by the seller and the money came out of your bank account you are not going to get all of it back. Paypal refunds like 80% to you and like 6 months later. With my credit card I can call them up and have them issue a chargeback and i get the money shortly after I call and then the credit card company puts the pressure on paypal. Paypal then has more incentive to take care of things because the credit card company takes their money directly from paypal.
