Sorry, no plans for the new batch. But the schematics is available online and I can share Gerber files if someone decides to order the boards from China.

Ok, anyway I will not need one for now, as the ass who offered me one for sale in Denmark, showed up to be a scammer, and ripped me off for 100EUR. What a crap! Sad.

Any details of that scammer - so everybody knows and don't get into the same sutiation as you? (I think it is worth for community to know such ones)

I think this is probably isolated issue, locally in Denmark. I did put an ad in local ad paper. A guy did contact me and claimed to have a CX5M with SFG05. Explained about the computer (though it did sound to me a little as if he did read it up from somewhere - after recalling the talk later). We did agree on the price, I did a bank transfer and here the show stopped. Next day he would not send me the tracking number. The image he sent me of the CX5M was correctly time stamped. After checking the images exif data (pretty much was wiped off - gps coordinates, camera and so on.Probably the image was somehow altered to prevent it from being found with reverse image search. It must be one taken from internet. Nothing he ever owned. The phone number showed up to be a prepaid one. No matching address could be found. Name and email probably fake / temp. His mobile phone had connected a danish "paypal" account (mobile pay) which did reveal completely different name. Used google mail = no senders ip address. What I have left is the account number and bank name. I can try to give the info to the police. Bank will not help me as the money transfer did NOT go through a visa card. To hell with such assholes. Yes I know I should be more cautious, but never been ripped by a local here in DK, before.

Every transaction from your bank may be disputed and if you contact the police and file a fraud complaint, then the bank could refund you if you can prove that the transaction was sent to a fraudulent account. You might also want to contact the target payment bank and file a complaint to them. Maybe it was a hijacked account, then they will open an investigation on their own. If that guy was stupid enough to use his own bank account, he is f*cked. If not, you will help one more poor soul who's account got owned. It's no use to wait for the fate to punish that fraudster asshole, try to make the punishment coming sooner. Smile

I feel pity when i hear such things. Be careful, mate. I hope you can get everything back. I know this anyway is an hassle (and sometimes people just let it go because amount is not big comparing to the time and effort you spend to get it back - but that's exactly why that scammers have more chance to repeat this on someone else). I feel a lot of regret for what happened to you. Prepaid should be used with much care - and that's where it sometimes better to pay those huge paypal fees but get covered...
