**** JS1200 scam.

Be careful guys,there's a JS1200 **** scam happening.

I bought a "Buy it Now" JS1200 on the Bay today,thankfully I hadn't yet payed.
I got an e mail from **** Security Centre telling me the sellers account had been compromised,they cancelled the auction,removed the guitar from ****,and suspended the seller who BTW had 134 positive feedbacks,and 100% feedback since 1998.

Incredibly enough half an hour after my purchase was suspended a new auction for a JS1200 appeared out of the blue.
I'm convinced it's the same guitar,the pictures posted on my auction had the same backround as the new auction,a grey floor to be precise,and a blue interior case.

The seller on my auction could not speak English very well,the seller on the new auction also speaks and writes English badly.

Im convinced it's a scam,judge for yourself.

Do an **** search for 'Ibanez JS1200'......you'll find one listing.

Tell me what you think.???

Re: **** JS1200 scam.

Yes,....7353579754 is the new auction that appeared within minutes of my auction being suspended.

Here are some pics.

This pic is the Auction I won.

So is this from the Auction I won.

Here's a pic from the new auction.

Do these look like the same guitar to you.?......dont you tihnk it's too co-incedental that both sets of pics have a grey floor backround,both have the blue interior hardcase,and both sellers have trouble speaking English properly.

Maybe I'm being over suspicious,but I reckon somethings not Kosher.

Re: **** JS1200 scam.

Well i would assume that all new JS1200s would come with that hardcase sinces its an ibanez prestige case. but it does seem pretty suspicious dosnt it? i think the carpets differnent between the 2 photos though. the old one has dots and looks more white, whereas the new one is totaly gray. plus the wall colour is totally diferent. also i cant see any objects out of the old ones in the new ones. its up to you though mate
