seriously.. what the hell is wrong with people.. and the looters and price gaugers in the hurricane hit states.. these people should all be bound, gagged and then shot.

That sucks. There is always somebody trying to scam. Like WC Fields said - there's a sucker born every day.

 

Roger is cool to authenticate his work. (and I'm sure any of the reputable builders would do likewise if asked. I myself got involved with helping a guy buy a used Kinal, and it was Mike Kinal himself who put us in touch.

There are new scams all the time.

 

The last one tried on me was:

 

I am selling a bass. the buyer contacts me and says his client "in state" owes him money (more than i'm asking, almost double) and that he'd like to have the money order sent to me and i give him the difference and the bass. Well before it comes he'll have an "emergency" of some kind, ask me to send the difference (and try to convice me to send the bass as well). the money order will arrive, and it will get accepted by the bank, but after being checked out it will be deemed a fake and i'll have to repay the money that was diposited in my account.

 

ppl are such asses, there is nothing worse, and no other creature does anything as bad and vile as humans do.

 

:END RANT:

Check out my work in progress.

I don't know if this has been mentioned before (I did search). Scamming Sadowskys, is anything sacred any more?

Anyone received one of these dodgy messages?

Part of my day job is assisting people process mail fraud complaints. (don't ask me about UPS or FedEx, they have their own procedures) You might be interested in a similar scam.

 

A few months ago I helped someone report an eBay scam. He was selling a vintage baseball card and had just received payment for it when he discovered another seller was offering the same card on eBay. He came into my office (with the actual card) and we took capture scans of the eBay ad. Apparently the other seller did the same thing and posted an identical image, complete with the control number on the plastic card holder the card was in. The complaint is currently under investigation.

 

If there's time, ask the seller to send you additional photos of the sale item, or better yet the item's serial number (which I ALWAYS post in my ads). Suspect any ad with fuzzy images.

Yeah, there have been a lot of completed auctions materials used for scams. I have to wonder if the most organized ones are using 'bots to harvest the photos and text. I was just reading about repeated Manley ones a few days ago. I haven't bought anything on eBay lately. But next time I do I'm going to really be careful (like I do with the internet - I just had someone really trying hard to get into my computer just a few minutes ago).

Just kidding - I couldn't hack my way into a paper bag.
