CON ALERT - JEMSITE TARGETED

These adds had been posted in the classified and other threads here 8/30. They were quickly pulled down by moderators, but you never know who was gullible enough to jump. He wrote me direct within minutes of posting them here. I'm reposting them below for posterity, but hopefully to warn off anybody that has actually contacted this guy. He's a terrible con man. Absolutely pathetic. If anybody has communicated with him and your spidey senses haven't gone on high alert, find a nurse and have yourself checked for a pulse.

He'll send you microscopic random pictures of the guitars he claims he has, although he can't seem to send pictures of the actual guitars. Pricing should be the first clue. Love the $4599 BRAND NEW UV77RE, especially in the UK, where he actually claims he has 9 of them, but can't send a picture of even one [except for random shots, Colter McCorkindale's group shot from this board, the factory close up of the NAMM guitar [which I own], and the factory catalog guitar shot in open case].

He claims to be Spanish living in London, the guitars are his, then they're at the shop, then his boss has bought 2 more UV77RE's when he was in South Africa for the World Cup, and 4 of them came from Spain. Yup, sure. Evidently he's my biggest competitor with nearly 10% of worldwide distribution!!

It seems his ID was mod deleted but if one could check if his IP is still available and run his location it would be a service to all.

A quick Google search will show you he's also active in electronic "sales" [or should that read cons also]

At any rate, be careful out there, this guy is a moron, but there are some very good and convincing criminals that have targeted and succeeded on this board and the internet in general.

Re: CON ALERT - JEMSITE TARGETED

And yet another reason why I will never buy a guitar online. I'm sure there are some very trustworthy vendors, such as Rich here from what I gather, but still seems too risky.

Re: CON ALERT - JEMSITE TARGETED

I forgot to add

He's will to ship you the guitar for inspection if you pay half of it up front.....

One thing true about all cons, half a con is better than nothing. It costs them nothing but time.

Here's his IP address, thanks Glen

He's in the UK, watch out guys, or, play with the jacka$$. I've toyed with him long enough, time to send him packing.

I just love his "boss" standing in front.

Seems like a cool boss, but I can't help but think that I might know that guy from somewhere...

Hell, maybe he's my boss too!

Sweet guitar though, you should try to get your hands on it Rich, it sounds like a great deal for eighteen bucks, or whatever he is asking for it

I just think it's awesome when people try to sell you your own stuff. Priceless.

I wouldn't go that far. I got my Jem 7VWh off Evilbay, from a very reputable vendor in Canada, 100% positive reviews, Power Seller, and within minutes of handing over the credit card details, got a phonecall to verify the card holder to be correct and knowing of the purchase. I was very impressed.

You CAN buy online, just do your homework on the seller first..... If you can't find enough information about them or if they've made a lot of people happy and such then keep looking.

Incidentally I saved myself $2500 Australian Dollars by getting it online. They're over $5500 in Australia, which is absurd. My mate thought the deal so amazing that he did the same.... again with no problems and ultra fast shipment.

In fact, I've gone as far as saying that "I will never buy another guitar off the shelf in this country again.... all purchases will be online when it comes to guitars"

Re: CON ALERT - JEMSITE TARGETED

What an absolute balloon!!! You should have said “wow, your photographic edge is so vibrant – I love the way you capture the action... that’s just how I would take a picture”

Obviously not very bright :
• Rip some pictures from a website
• Email the guy who took the pictures in the hope he has developed the most severe form of amnesia known to man!
• Watch the cash role in

I’m gonna email this guy purely for the entertainment value – total legend!

scanning a ip address only shows post code (zip code) it wont tell you his house number.the only people who can find out where you live using ip address is the police.
