His claim that there are no numbers on it is patently false if he has
a real Diebold machine. I stand by my bet that this is a hoax, in
which case by definition he is a crook. His semiliteracy and
demanding for $20 for a phone call is consistent. Notice that his
message originally said that *you* could call the seller; then he
thought better of it and incompletely edited the offer saying that
*he* would call (for $20). I would not send him a phone card if I
were you.
