'90 JEM777VBK on Houston CL - scam

If anyone sees a new listing on 3/7/11 for a '90 JEM777VBK on Houston Craigslist for the super low price of $700, beware that the listing is a scam. It was brought to my attention by another member here, but the guitar in the listing is one I bought recently. The picture of the guitar on that strange hand wall hanger and the entire description is lifted directly from the eBay listing. It was item #250766380356 if you care to look.

Hope I saved someone from getting ripped off!

Yeah I noticed it because of the green strings thats why I PMed you to make sure.

Here it is. I'm not sure how a scam would work locally though, unless hes ONLY willing to ship which would give himself away instantly sinces he does have it listed on craigslist and not on a forum where its normal.

I think a lot of scammers have picked up on the fact that there are search engines that will search Craigslist so they can get responses from all over the country. In that case it would be even easier than eBay to scam someone.

We're both perfect examples of that......but we're not easily tricked!

I got my BFP and 7PBK from other states using that thing. Its always important to ask for detailed pictures.
