    Is EBay that quick to remove fraudulent listings? I was told to give it 1-2 days.

    :wow: I guess not. I would think since he has it listed for 15K and it's not his item they would remove it immediately once they are notified by the owner of the item.

    Claims he is in canada and his brother is in NY and brother has the guitar. I said...PERFECT! I said. I have a cousin that lives there too, and I'd like him to check it out in hand before I pay.

    Well...brother is out of town to the jets game. Hmmm. So, no problem, send me a Paypal invoice...my cousin owns his own business, so he has the freedom to come any time your brother is available, and I will pay the invoice while my cousin is there. He can take it with him in hand, and you won't have to worry about shipping.

    Uh well uh ummm yeah o.k.. I will call you and let you know what a good time is. :laugh2:

    I will keep you guys posted. :laugh2:

    Well...:laugh2::laugh2: got em good. Man was he excited to have a real buyer.

    I had this happen to me once when I had a guitar on CL. Went to put it on EBay, and it was already there under another seller! :laugh2:

    The deal is, I buy it off eBay, then he in turn buys it from the forum and has them ship it to me. Kind of an underhanded "middleman" scam.

    He swore not true, talking about how they make duplicate sn#'s and such. He knew a little about guitars, just not enough to scam me.

    He swore he had the guitar. I said, o.k., text me a picture of the back of the headstock showing the serial number with a newspaper dated today or tomorrow and I will Paypal you $100 right now while we are on the phone. He laughed. Knew he was busted. He honestly saw nothing wrong with what he was doing. He said as long as I got the guitar I paid for, who cares! :laugh2:

    Ahh, oh well. Waisted half his night. :laugh2:

    He told me he just used the pics but he has a Pearly he is selling. I told him that was BS that I didn't believe he has any guitars. Then he said he was in the process of buying the one he stole the pics of. His story was all over the place. People like that should have their account suspended/deleted.

    So if his brother has the guitar how did he make the videos of it today???:laugh2::laugh2::laugh2:

    That guitar in the video has no nibs.

    Hi Skit, that video is of BG058, and has the original frets w/nibs, however small they are, the nibs are there.

    I am putting 2+2 together, and I believe this scammer is a member of this forum, as certain events that took place last night with certain information that was shared with a couple of members, I am confident that I don't need to be Columbo to figure out who this person is.:thumb:
