So I put one of my old pedals up on craigslist (Boss ME-50) and I get an email from some guy named Tony the next day.

He sends me this offer, which for some reason I found a bit strange.

I'm interested in the Boss ME-50. I can offer...

the items in this post:

PLUS
Dual 8" Car/Truck Ported Sub Box Enclosure (SEE PIC)

Let me know.
Tony

I tell him no thanks, so he offers me a roland 8 track recorder/workstation thing. Again, only pictures from where it was sold.

Then in another email, he asks what I would be interested in, how long I've been playing, what I play, etc.

Then I get this...

I sent you links to a couple of posts I had up on Clist yesterday that including a number of "extra items." Did any of those items appeal to you??

Some of those items below.

Full Band/Length Backing Tracks
Blues Guitar Course
Sound Effects
Chord-scale-mode software.
Guitar / Music books on disk.
Audio Loops
Cakewalk Guitar Tracks Pro3 PC recording software
Yngwie Malmsteen Book/CD Instruction
Paul Gilbert instructional DVD

Tony


And this is the one that really makes me think all this stuff is either stolen, or he's going to rape me.


I do not have a distortion pedal.

I'll throw this offer out, delivered to my home since I don't drive due to Multiple Sclerosis:

>Dunlop GCB-95 Wah pedal with power supply (New in box, never unpacked)

Should I keep talking to this guy? It just seems kinda fishy to me. How could he have all of this shit new, unopened, and ready to go?

Listen to your inner voice.

If there's a little something inside your head that says: BACK OFF DUDE!

Then listen to it.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

This guy sounds legit. Go ahead. Go pick up the stuff from his house. Take no one else with you and leave your cell phone home.


He paid me to tell you that.

I opened my eyes and found my mother standing next to me with my sheets in one hand and the other hand over her eyes. She said, "Why are you naked!" and i quickly tried to come up with an answer, but all i could get out was, "Feels good man."

If you REALLY find something that you wanna pick up, make yourself a friend who's a cop and can legally bring a gun and go with you to pick it up.

If the cop thing is not a possibility, do the same, just change the phrase 'legally bring a gun' to 'illegally save your ass need be.'

Just be honest and tell him there is no way he has all that just ready to go, and that he will need more proof if he expects you to be interested
