I think that's a great idea mrchi! I'm currently panless and spend a good amount of time looking for opportunities online, and I find quite a few dodgy adverts regularly. As there are bound to be lots of others like me, a place where scams can be quickly flagged up would be good. This should leave the swap/sales section free to do what it should be doing. I wonder what the Admins think?

He sells his used 3rd hand BElls as a "Hang drum" at the modical price of 75k pesos, that is 12K in dollars, stating that in ebay is costs between 5k and 12k in euros. Lies and more lies.... god... no words


The ad has been taken down.

Yes, actually it is against the site rules to publish public information such as your facebook account, due to the fact that people put free ads and don't want to pay comision for selling. I informed this situation and it was taken down. Nobody would be so dumb to pay that amount of money though... actually, 75K pesos is a bit more than 12K in dollars, it is something like 13.5K

I had the chance to meet this guy. He intended to buy my Halo, and also asked me if i could ask Victor for an instrument for him. Also since i'm building and i have 1 prototpe that actually sounds, he also intended buying it. I denied, and gave him my opinion about his attitude. You can imagine his bitchy reaction....

Marnamber - you don't sound enchanted with him. :lol:

The desecration of all that's ethical is something I find quite scary.

This guy is definitely getting what is coming to him. I heard of another respected maker that denied him a pan. Pretty soon he will have no choice but ebay, and then he won't have enough money.
