    Time for a new username!

    I agree with the other posters. That machine is probably hotter than a two-dollar pistol!

    There is never any good reason any SN is removed from anything.
    NOPE! Only reason to remove serial numbers is because its stolen. Why would anyone want to remove serial numbers? No other reason I can think of. I mean with that being known, I think I would want to get my money back for two reasons. One if it was ever serviced. It would suck to be something legit on your end, and then be nailed for recieving stolen goods. Its just not a very good thing. I dont know any other reason anyone would want to remove SN's. And it if could possibly be indentified they would take it right off you and give it back to the original owner. But I am no expert.

    The problem for you if it indeed is stolen, is that you can go to jail possessing stolen mechandise. I mean who buys a machine without a serial # in the first place??
    And if you contact police and it is reported stolen you are out of your money, they will return it to the person it was stolen from, and then you are out whatever you paid for it.

    Fist get your refund from the seller, then contact police.

    I second that. But its not worth it when it can be taken right away from you no matter what he paid. Not to mention buying something with removed serial numbers is going to be hard to explain to the authorities and chances of facing charges would be very very likely.
