A Whiff of Rodent?

- and yes the (two crappy distant pictures) on the auction are ones of the real amp :thumbsup:

- what is the point of people scamming like this now if Paypal can freeze and recoup the costs from the seller, unless of course someone tries to poach off ebay and wires the cash??

Exactly. He has put PAYPAL as the payment method. Always a danger sign when sellers write such lengthy crap as a description.

A real '64 only needs ...... 1964 Marshall JTM-45 in superb condition.

Other warning sign is...... no guts shots. Yet there is a pic of the chassis out of the amp.

Lastly the amp has been photographed in a studio judging by the angled shot of the amp and white backdrop.

Photos are of the actual amp :shock: Well you would expect that wouldn't you.

Sent him a message asking for guts shots. With so many scammers around it only makes good clean Original Plexis more valuable.

Hard to see the point of auctions like this. It's either going to be shilled up or pulled. It's not presented like something pulled out of the shed and inocently offered. At least this one isn't asking to use an email listed in the description.

could be identity thieves

steal a paypal account and bank account, sell something expensive, and take the money and run!

I thought the text was familiar:

Lifted from LA guitar shoppe - our old friends too!

It has the same text on an Aberdeen Craigs list!

Must be my peculiar English use of sarcasm that did not translate :wink:

I did not bother - just reported it - glad to see they pulled it without any fuss.
