Potential Scammer, again, Xmas time.

So, it doesn't directly concern Jemsite, but better safe than sorry right.

On*bay, there was this auction for a jem 10th, number 571.

It raised every red flag on Rich's list, but hey, the guy was supposed to live close to me, so I went for it and the auction was mine.

As soon as it was over, the auction disappeared from the site and the guy comes to me through mails and asks for wire transfer, like yesterday.

I gave him the benefit of the doubt for over a week, many chances to come clean, and offered a transaction through escrow.

No answer.

So, if a Philipp Raeder (possible pseudo) wants to sell a Jem10th n571, chances are it's a scammer. Watch out. I still hope I'm wrong though.
