  2. This another version of the "Nigerian Money Order scam".

    They put up pics of a real vintage instrument at a stupid price..and when you ask to come see it they start the same old bs "I am out of the country on business but you can send payment to...."

    I have seen another recent post like this with a CAR '65 Strat for $4500

    Just for our amusement, here's the "copy and paste" reply from [email protected] , also known as Mr. Scammer... Enjoy...

    Hello there,
    Thank you for your email.I'm an US Air Force Lieutenant currently stationed in North Dakota at a military base.Back in 1957 my late father-in-law purchased this guitar brand new, in hopes of becoming a great guitar player. However, after a few lessons, he realized it was not going to be his thing, so he put the guitar away in it's case for safe keeping. He kept this guitar over the years, and it was rarely ever taken out. Therefore it remains in like-new condition. My father-in-law recently passed away so i am selling it cause i will be sent back to Iraq and i don't want it be lost in my house.It will be shipped directly to your address.
    The asking price is $2500US, shipping included. You will receive it in
    2-3 working days at your home address. The payment is fully refundable. If for any reason you do not accept the unit or if it has scratches, hidden defects, or it is not as
    advertised I will even pay for the shipping back to my location if you
    reject it but i'm sure that it won't happen cause it works and
    looks perfectly.
    I believe it's a large transaction and would like to conduct the deal using an authorized third party as eBay using their Purchase Protection Program , so that should eliminate any trust issues.ONLY AFTER you receive the guitar and you inspect it, eBay will release the payment to me, in this way we are both protected.
    If you are a serious buyer and still interested in this guitar please reply with your full name and shipping address so we get the ball rolling. I will forward your details to ebay and they will notify you regarding our deal.
    Thank you,
    If you need more pics just ask.

    so how does he get money out of people then? If he puts it on ebay that's actually true, buyers are protected...

    This is not your typical ebay. He will make a escrow website and pretend that it's from ebay. Then your money is gone... This has been around for several years now...
