Ibanez JS Blackdog on the bay...legit or scam

What's your opinion on this one guys? He sold a Jem7wh and a JS1200 the last 3 days. Now he has a JS Blackdog and another JemVBK (I think).
All are only short 3 day lists and seller states that he is getting married, busy, etc and will ship all guitars sold by Nov 15 so all bidders have to be willing to WAIT for MORE THAN 30 days to be shipped! I boiled down to it leaning to a scam on my point of view.I was wondering what you think...

Legit, Nov 15 is 12 days away? That is less than two weeks?

He has two neutral feedbacks... LOL look at what they were

Looks legit. He explained that the holiday season may result in longer delivery time. I don't like the idea that "the cheapest delivery method will be used because bla bla bla" At least give the buyer the choice

Ha! Ha! Actually most of his feedback is from selling stuff like that.

Re: Ibanez JS Blackdog on the bay...legit or scam

Somebody got a steal, or, did they? I asked for fresh pictures with my ID to prove he actually had it. After a bit he told me to give him a couple hours and he'd have his brother take some new ones. When he finally sent them they were more of the same that he already had on the auction, nothing new, and nothing with my ID. AFAIC he could have taken them from somebodies Facebook page, which is what I replied with. He never answered. I lowballed it and underbid, and if it had stuck I would have made him shoot pics or I wouldn't have paid. But I knew that was going to sell for pennies. He "pretended" like he didn't care what it sold for, but human nature says that's impossible. You spend $5k+ on something and you care what it brings, and you try and maximize that return. Still smells fishy.

He seems to have a lot of copies of the Kama Sutra, so at least it'll be good as he screws you.


zing!

Re: Ibanez JS Blackdog on the bay...legit or scam

The Blackdog belongs to steeledge78...got a confirmation and reply from him. He said he will report to eBay but unfortunately I think the bids went through. The black Jem was copied from a listing being sold in Europe. I just hope this guy gets the whip sooner or later for having the guts to scam people who work hard or "ask politely" (lol) for their money to buy nice guitars. I don't know where he copied the Js1200 and the other Jem.

Re: Ibanez JS Blackdog on the bay...legit or scam

Hi guys,
I bought the js black dog yesterday, I didn't pay yet.
Do you think that I need to cancel?
Maybe he just copied the pics from google.
THANKS,
Arbel.

Yes I saw that but maybe he just took the images from google.
We talked yesterday, he seems nice, I asked today to send me pictures, he didn't answer yet.

Re: Ibanez JS Blackdog on the bay...legit or scam

1. He's a liar. He sent me extra pictures taken from that page and claimed he had taken them.
2. It was dirt cheap, only because the auctions were extremely suspicious, and he couldn't prove he has the guitar, that's the only reason you ended up high bidder.
3. If you're looking for problems go ahead and pay. He could send you a box of rocks, it gets to you outside your claim window [as per his "shipping schedule"] and you will get nothing.

Don't be dumb.

Re: Ibanez JS Blackdog on the bay...legit or scam

I know it looks bad but many people taking pictures from google,

He answerd my last message, told me he is moving right now and cannot take the pictures, and that's why he also ship late.
I asked him to take pictures of that guitar with him and a well known newspaper when he can, hope that's good enough.

Re: Ibanez JS Blackdog on the bay...legit or scam

It's an excuse.

It is not enough.

Require pictures of the guitar with a piece of paper in the shot with your ebay ID, the date, and SOLD TO written on it. Since he's an already proven liar, nothing else is good enough.

Re: Ibanez JS Blackdog on the bay...legit or scam

I sent a second letter. Asking him in addition to the newspaper to take pictures of the guitar with a piece of paper with my ebay ID, the date, and "sold to" written on it as Rich suggested I will. THANKS Rich!
