Hang on Gumtree UK - LOOKS LIKE A SCAM

Postby simsomsam » Fri Mar 15, 2013 9:53 pm

Hi found this (apparently) 1st Gen Hang (Zhi Diao) on Gumtree a few days back with a too good to be true asking price.

Advert = http://www.gumtree.com/p/for-sale/hang/1012138780

I could be wrong but I don't think this is genuine as when I contacted the seller I was emailed this YouTube link to a video of the instrument.

Video = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37vfKOFhQ9c

I have had no reply yet to my subsequent message. I debated about posting this up on the Forum but in the end I guess I want some friendly advice. I am sorry if this is a genuine ad from a member here, I just wanted to be safe rather than sorry and warn any others who saw it.

Definitely a scam .... that's our very own Don Marco, Saraz maker, in the video :lol:

Not a very smart scammer either - advertising a 1st Gen and then linking it to a video of a 2nd gen
