    Selling in the Member Classifieds - Brand New Members, Zero Posts

    I've had 2 different guitars for sale in the member classifieds and had two different members (or not), with zero posts, inquire about the guitars immediately after opening their accounts. Strikes me as fishy at best. Anyone else experiencing this?
