Scam for first Gen PANArt in LA craigslist

Postby dblink » Sat Oct 12, 2013 6:49 pm

Ive been in contact with seller from craigslist about purchasing a Hang and getting some weird feelings.

Here is the craigslist post:

Here are some of the extra pictures he sent. Do any of you recognize them?

He put it in Ebay Buyer proctection and got an email from it. I contacted ebay, and said it needs to be listed through the site, so have a message out to him to see if he will list it properly.

any ideas or help?

Thanks everyone (we need to keep each other safe out here)

ask if you can meet up and try it? or if you are too far away, maybe someone else on the forum can try it for you?
