What a day! I'd mentioned earlier about the upsurge in scam emails I have personally been getting, and heard from a couple guys who had been approached and asked me if I thought it was "fishy." As a result, I spent some time last night harvesting all the email addresses from my own Double Bass Classified Ads site, and sent them the following email: I also inadvertently sent it to the 2xbasslist. Amazingly enough I got emails from two guys who are currently engaged in deals like this. One had already deposited the check, but hadn't sent the money yet -- I don't know if he gave up his $6000 bass! Just got a second email from a guy who deposited a check today and was also feeling queasy about the deal. This completely blows me away! I only sent perhaps 50 emails-- if this is any indication. these bastards are taking a lot of guys off for big bucks! So, in the interest of making as many people as possible aware, I'm posting this here and elsewhere. Let's be careful out there.
