Re: (tracking someone) selling stolen guitar on e-bay?
What if someone stole your guitars and tried selling them on ****? If the victim of the theft is ever surfing around and sees something- you can get in serious trouble. **** isn't necessarily an accountability-free environment. How's this for a freak occurance- the OR at one of the hospitals I work at had some cameras go missing (working for the sterile processing dept., we're always the first to blame) and the thief was eventually caught, arrested, and fired. How? The sales rep for the scope company was golfing with an MD friend who was bragging about how he bought some cheap surgical scopes from the 'bay- the same model as the ones that we were missing. The rep. checked out the auction listings, which had the seller's location in our area (the thief was one of the surgical techs).
I know your situation and items may be different, but it's red herrings like this that should make you weary of selling stolen goods. You don't have to rat your friend out, but keep your nose clean.
