Heads up!

Ok theres a Jem777 SK on the bay being sold from here in my part of the woods and he has it on cragslist too. I contacted the guy and asked for him to call me because we can go over the deal. Now on such a large amount you dont take that in cash and meet someone unless they give you warm fuzzy.

Well 5 emails and I ask that he call but he just emails. The last email was him saying he wanted me to send paypal and then once clears his bank we would meet...... For a local deal? I may be wrong in thinking this but if someone your dealing with dosent give you any contact info or bother to call you and then wants you to send money and wait three days before getting and number or address seems big time shaddy, even more so being local, dude, im like 15 mins from you?!?!

So if anyone is bidding on this guitar on the bay Warning!! Danger! I smell scam!

Re: Heads up!

Yeah something doesn't smell right, but on the other hand maybe he's just being overly cautious. Either way I would steer clear of anything that didn't feel right.

Re: Heads up!

Stop the music! I got the guy to agree to meet me! So its looking better.

It seems he was stuck in meetings all day. So I will feel sheepish if all goes well.

JJEMMER777, you might have to take my Jemsite police badge away LOL

Re: Heads up!

All went ok, seems the guy is a bit disorganized seller. We met up and didnt have any problems. Felt kinda bad being I walk away with a very good shape early 87 SK for $900! No fadding but I need to clean the dead skin off her and give her a setup.

So feel safe to bid on his stuff but you may have to give him some time to reply.

Yeah, so I can use it on you!!!

Ya dawg

Nice snag!

You're a very mean person though! I think you should offer him at least $ 100 more! Or else I'll offer him $ 500 more

Congrats BRO!

(just remember.....I know where you live)
