    I read the mod's statement, but didn't see anything about making posts about seeing online listings that contain "red flags" as an item that may be stolen.
    Because they may not be stolen, perhaps they are just being listed by someone who inherited them or received them as barter pay, etc.
    I decided to search this forum for the bass, but it's not here.

    What do you do when you see something like this?
  2. On every posting there is A report option, click it and send A message to the mods of concerns

    I don't mean the listings here necessarily. I mean Ebay, Craigslist, Facebook, etc.

    I voted post it to talk bass, only because there are more knowledgeable bassists than I, who are familiar with a wider range of gear. If it was a bass like mine, I'd ask the probing questions first, and THEN post my findings to TB.

    We look out for each other here, do we not? If not, we should :thumbsup::cool::greedy:

    I'd refrain from calling out something like that without evidence. I get the idea of looking out for your fellow bass player but unless it was so glaringly obviously stolen, it's none of my business.
