The fact is that some countries are known for hacking - Russia, Poland, the balkans, (basically any of the old "Soviet bloc" countries) Israel and France just to name a few are generally considered to be countries where the computer laws haven't caught up to the hacking skills - or the hacking is state sponsored.
I'd have no qualms buying from you (and may well once I get some issues sorted) but I'd only do it from a computer that had no personal information on it and would get wiped thereafter - regardless of where the seller is.
Not only that, but doing something like this on a clean computerdecreases the likelyhood that there will be some sort of port conflict. I can reimage the computer with a clean Win7 install in about a half hour - far less time than it takes to resolve a conflict.
As I said before I agree with you!!!
But I just did not understand why Poland was on your black list. I did a quick search in Google to see anything about Poland and hackers and identity theft and couldn't really find anything... But again it was just a quick search and I would really hear such stories living in Poland, wouldn't I?
So to sum up, if somebody feels better giving me access to a clean install of Windows I am absolutely fine with that and I even prefer it. Sometimes people have so many background applications running which make their computers extremly slow
