    Thank you! I just called Billy at Rocknrguitars and he confirmed this is in his possession so the CL guy is obviously stealing his images. I will do what I can to notify CL and/or post a "Scam" listing on cL when I get home tonight.

    Again thanks for all the replies - that's what I love about MLP.

    Seller just replied to my latest email "I'm not local payment would have to be through PayPal."
    So I asked him where he is located.

    I'm wondering why that add is still up. I hope the person won't succeed with this scam and victimize someone.
    He/she isn't very good at it though. With a price like that there is bound to be something wrong. As in "If something seems too good to be true, it usually is".
    Glad you asked here first, OP.

    These kinds of criminals need to have their "wang" pulled off, and auctioned on CL. No one would buy it, but a lesson learned.

    Thanks. I just filled out the fraud/scam reporting tool on CL too, so hopefully it will be removed.

    I'm sure it's Chinese for something, what I would not know.
    My use of the word (not related to anything Chinese) is meant for the male anatomy known as the penis.:D

    I hope this clarification is useful.

    What? It's Craigslist, of course someone would buy it. Not me, I'm just saying, but some wack-a-doodle would be all over something like that.
