Re: Real or fake Jem auction on e-vil-bay?

In the beginning, i offered the guy a chance to refund the money. then I come here and see that someone else got the same response letter as myself today. At this point would you still be questioning the chance of this being a scam? How many of these guitars did this guy get as christmas gifts?? Maybe he'll come clean and refund the money. But I'm not wasting any more time when I see these kinds of clues.

there's no harm in getting the paypal process started now - it's a fairly drawn-out process anyway.

Re: Real or fake Jem auction on e-vil-bay?

Rich wouldn't have bought it (lol) I think he was just questioning the seller about it (Rich?)

Try and get the money back from the seller first, no point in getting a negative feedback for being hasty.

Having said that, I've not just spent $1000 on a fake Jem. Do whatever feels right just don't slander the guy because then he has ammo and it could come back to haunt you, be nice and polite with him (until you get your money back at least). You are in the "right" here so just be careful how you tread.

Re: Real or fake Jem auction on e-vil-bay?

How did Rich have the exact same "word for word" letter as me then?? weird. It was a response from the seller when I questioned the guitar. I get that letter expaining that it was a gift, he took it to GC, plays PRS, ...word for word. Something's fishy, but I'll give him a chance to respond.

Re: Real or fake Jem auction on e-vil-bay?

I think Rich was probably telling the guy that it was a fake and not to charge so much for it and this was what the guy claims happened. Trust me, I wouldn't be happy either, but give him a chance first, then if all else fails, ****ing nuke him with whatever you've got, lol

Cool Re: Real or fake Jem auction on e-vil-bay?

Theres just to many of these fakers on Evilbay i spend at least a hour a day looking at the fakes & the rip off sellers, i'm so supprised how shifty these f#ckers are, my list is to big but i will look into finding any victims of these sellers on the web in sted of Evilbay & post it up on Jemsite in the hope no bros get done over buy them!

Jemsite bros its a new sport to get into, just type in your web search the name of the seller or other to see what you can dig up, the truth is out there!

Re: Real or fake Jem auction on e-vil-bay?

What I really dont get about this sellers is this:

If you know you are selling a fake, and despite that you advertise it as the real thing. You describe it as a /VWH, you quote Steve Vais name, etc, etc,e tc knowing its a fake. Why dont they go the extra mile and post pics of a real 7VW?

You are either honest or a sumbag, make up you mind!

Some of the Chinese sellers do unfortunately.

I hate to say it, but as a rule of thumb I'd never buy anything from over in China (BTW that's just me looking out for myself, certainly not being racist) Having said that, I think the market has been flooded with these things now so you should be cautious no matter where you buy from, but I guess that goes without saying.

Re: Real or fake Jem auction on e-vil-bay?

I don't know, the whole part of the story about taking the guitar to Guitar Center and the sales reps there completely and utterly BS-ing on the authenticity and pulling a selling price out of their @$$es seems quite realistic! lol

+1 on that. That part of the story does sound real because the GC people don't know diddley.

Re: Real or fake Jem auction on e-vil-bay?

A lot of people wrote this guy telling him it was fake and to revise his listing.

It was the GC part that made it absolutely believable

Yeah, I've seen C02060876, C02060825, C02060834... but generally they are C02060??? except one I saw was S05050396 (which was odd).

I've been reporting fakes to the counterfeit link on e-bay. At times it seems like I'm pissing in the wind... but it seems like the best thing to do (besides also sending the seller and buyer's messages).

Not sure if this would help, but maybe if you guys spot a fake, shoot it to e-bay using the link below. I guess it can't hurt.
