re: Anti-Fraud Thread: verify a guitar, seller, fakes

Check it n00b... your guitar is from China!

Seriously though, I was maybe thinking that it'd be worth someone either creating an e-bay account (or just use their own I guess) and post links to this thread in auctions, similar to how Snakeman did last year? It wouldn't cost much (probably 10p) just to do about 2 auctions a day so it's nicely spread out and people can see. So you'd put something along the lines of...

Quote:
E-BAY WARNING ON FAKE GUITARS (please click link)
as the auction title, then..


Quote:
Recently the has been a bunch of Chinese guitars, blahblahblah, etc.

http://www.jemsite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=49018

Warning: If you use Buy It Now you will only be winning an e-mail containing this very link.
and put the buy it now at either one MILLION dollars (raises pinky) or 1p so that people will get it first on a price search.

What do you think?

Scarey.

Seen this listed loads of times, raising suspicions.

Look at the feedback too.

Yeah they've gone that extra mile but it's still a blatant fake.

Even though the auction ended, I always wondered about this one 7419396750

I'm new to Jem's, so I can't tell but maybe somebody here can.

Thanks in advance.
