Exclamation "Fake" seller, pay attention !!!!

I put an add regarding a fender malmsteen 1988 I was looking for.
I received this morning an email from a jemsite member : audio12 (AGUSTIN MUŅUMER)

his email is : [email protected]

he send me a pic of an awesome fender malmsteen 88, with RW neck and ask me 600 euros (780 dollars) for it, which is more than a bargain !!!!

I search the web and find similar post where this guy contact people who are looking for music stuff...

So, I prefer tell you this story and prevent any bad deals with him.
If this guy is a REAL seller with REAL guitars, all apologies !!!!
(I send him an email to get more pics and check his reliability, we will see...)

Best.

If you don't know if he's fake or not, what's the reason of this thread?!
If he's real, you could mess up his deals.
You can't just accuse people, you need to have proof.

Re: "Fake" seller, pay attention !!!!

I got an email from this guy today as well:

I read your advert on jemsite.com:

Hope you are doing fine..My name is AGUSTIN MUŅUMER from Spain..Are you still interested?Let me know and email me at [email protected] for details and pictures or send me your email address for more details thanks and wait for your reply

Unquote.

Sent by [email protected] Maybe that's his Jemsite user name. Will have a look and see if I can find a member going by that description and check his IP address.

No way was I replying to that email.

Re: "Fake" seller, pay attention !!!!

He replied to my ad that was requesting an Ibanez Universe. He also told me he was from spain. He tells me he can't steal my money and showed me 2 pictures of his wife and kid (with him in the picture as well). Now I don't know if any of that is true, he could have just pulled up somebody elses pictures.

I'm just letting you know that he's said it to me too, and when he posted the wrong universe (which was an exact one from ebay) he posted another one that looked like the one i wanted. His deal for an almost brand new Universe was like 800 dollars. It's unbelievable. I'm glad I saw this thread before I went through with anything.

Guys if it sounds too good to be true then it almost certainly is.

If in any doubt always ask for your Forum ID to be written on a piece of paper and photographed beside the guitar in question.

You can also visit the sellers profile page and trace their IP address. The wording/language of most of those emails you get should be enough to tell you that it's a scam.

Epic Oshikuru reference

True story - I made a Mixtape for my dad's commute with that song looped over and over and over... He still uses it ...... It was also my computer's startup song for about 6 months

Winning!!
