    You don't need to give this out normally

    Is the laptop 'clean' or does it have a 'history' if you know what I mean?

    The person probably wants to check if it's been reported stolen and if it's clean you have nothing to worry about.

    Bill, thanks for responding. I think its clean. But how would i check out that
    information. I should go check it out if its possible. If its clear, i might let them have the
    service tag privately.

    At least i know i dont have to give it out if i dont want to.

    thanks

    Is it common for someone to get caught on ebay selling stolen items?
