Need help with potential Jem purchase!!

Are there any jemsiters located in or very near charleston South Carolina? There is a Jem I want to purchase, but idk if I trust the guy whose selling it. I was wondering if any of you were local to that area, and could go check it out for me since I live 900 miles away. I just want to make sure it's legit before I PayPal him and then get screwed.

I just got screwed on a purchase. I used PayPal and a credit card so I'm set as far as protection goes. You may want to back it up with a card just in case.

Re: Need help with potential Jem purchase!!

I always make sure to do it that way, I just want to go even further this time since he's so eager to sell the guitar. Feels fishy but may not be.

If it seems to good to be true it probably is. Hopefully a trustworthy Jemsiter can check it out for you. That is a good price for that guitar.

It is a good price. He told me he'd sell it to me for $1,000 today because his truck broke and he needs money. That's what seemed shady to me.

Re: Need help with potential Jem purchase!!

I know the guitar in the pics are real, I did that whole reverse search and couldn't find them online, plus he sent me extra. It's just a matter of wether he's going to send it or not. I may pass up the deal, at least unless I figure out some way to verify.

Re: Need help with potential Jem purchase!!

I was considering making the run for that one It's still 5 hours from me though. I just can't swing it with school at the moment. Steal for sure, however, I figured a yocal would've bought it by now just to resale.
