    Alright Fraud Squad, check out these two e-bay auctions:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=2502119245

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=2501365408

    It's the same pics of the same guitar, in two different auctions, being sold by two different sellers! [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img] Notice how one guy claims to be from Oklahoma and the other from Wisconsin? Somethings screwy here gang! What do you think, Fraud Squad?

    Going by both auctions I'd say the guy from Oklahoma owns that particular guitar.
    He came out with a reasonable starting price and had more than one picture.
    I'd just email that seller with the other seller's ebay auction no. and let him know that someone is using his picture, and may or may not have a guitar for sale.
    He'd probably contact the seller from Wisconsin and see what's going on.
    Sellers don't appreciate this kind of stuff, but it's pretty much up to him to contact ebay if there's a problem.
    You could even email both and see what's up. Contacting ebay first may not be a good idea because if they both have a wolf for sale and one guy is just using someone else's picture for lack of a digital camera then ebay may cancel both auctions and that will only hurt the sellers, even though both may be legitimate.

    As far as the other add to get a Hamer for free some guy is always auctioning off advice on how to get something for free and you'd be amazed at how many people go for it.
    It's perfectly legit for him to sell advice like that so ebay won't stop it as long s he follows through and delivers what he says he will...advice.

    You guys have way too much time on your hands...

    The Duran Guitar guy tried to sell the guitar earlier this month starting at $499 with no bids.

    Due Dilligence is up to the buyer... Just like when you buy a car.

    NO disrespect to anyone looking out for a fellow fan, but let these folks on Ebay walk on their own two feet. Damn. [img]graemlins/wtf.gif[/img]

    Interestingly, the Oklahoma guy ended his auction early today. No explanation given.

    Hmmmm. Whatcha think Fraud Squad? Do we put this one in the victory category, in spite of what our spicy pepper friend thinks? [img]tongue.gif[/img]
