You've heard of "scam baiting?" With a little "rip-off baiting," the Mirage
has been reduced from $500 to $400:
Me: Hi. I have a B&N Nook I'll trade for your Mirage kayak. Let me know. Thanks.
5055555555: Can you send me pictures of this
Me: I could this evening, but here is the URL, if it helps: NOOK Simple Touch┬« - Frequently Asked Questions, FAQs - Barnes┬*&┬*Noble
5055555555: How old is your Nook and is it the Nook glow light or the Nook HD and how big is the screen
Me: Only a couple years old. Used very little. Simple Touch (model just before Glow Light). Screen is 800x600, 6" diagonal.
Me: Here is a better URL: BARNES & NOBLE | NOOK Simple Touch┬«
5055555555: Does it have google play?
Me: Not currently, but it can be "rooted" to do so.
5055555555: I'm not interested in doing a straight across trade due to the fact that I'm selling the canoe for 500 and the nook I can get for under 100. So if you have a little cash along with the nook then we can talk
Me: Understood. You do realize it is a 35-year-old design that hasn't been manufactured in 20 years, right? If you can get $100 for it, I'll give you my Nook.
5055555555: Yeah I'll take $100 and your Nook
Me: Sorry, you misunderstand me. I don't think it is worth more than $50 in today's market, sadly. I'm just suggesting you lower your expectations a bit.
5055555555: I'll find somebody that can appreciate it
Me: I don't expect it, but I'd love to know what you do eventually sell it for. Seriously, check this out: 2009 Jackson Fun Kayak ++
