Anyone suggesting their own, non-standard escrow service is probably riping you off.

Jesus loving hell, it's obvious the person who wrote that email is not from the united states. Don't gently caress with whoever this professor is, it's not him, and you'll just be harrassing some innocent guy.

Uh yeah, I'm in college. Even professors that arn't native english speakers tend to be able to speak the language better than the writer of that email.

Tell him that $2100 is too low, and ask for a price over what it costs to get one of them brand new. If he agrees, it is definately a scam, and you can feel free to harrass him all you like.
It has been already proven this is a scam.
