well i need the carin x100b head. it is pure gold in my opinion. but it is only in the us of a. would it be possible for me to send the fundage to a person in america, buy it, ship it and job done? this sounds fairly dodgy to me. but if i trust you with my moneys i would definitly go for it.

I'm sure it's possible. Here in Australia, we can order amps at major music shops. Try that wherever you are.

EDIT: How have you tried the amp out if you can't get hold of it in your country.

yes, indeed it does look dodgy.

at best this is not a scam, but i doubt it belongs in this forum.
i'll report this, and let a mod decide whether to close it, or allow it to stay.

this is not a scam. this is asking if anyone has done this kind of thing and how it went for them. and i would be giving the moneys first anyhow so i dont see how i would gain from this "scam" anyway.
#7
hmm... well as long as he gave the money to the person first then at least you'd know its not a scam
#8
Yea im sure there are plenty of people here that are trustworthy, But you can never tell. I mean i would do this for someone. But trusting some random guy on the internet is a big deal. I personally would not be willing to drop down that much money...

but I guess you could order the amp yourself over the internet, have it shipped to someones house, and have them ship it to you and scan a copy of the bill for the shipping... possibly throw in a few extra bucks for the trouble someone would go through...and its very doable, but it would be best if you had family or some friends in the states...

Well Slatsmania bought a fulltone pedal for Gabe and sent it to him, but Slats is a very respectable member here and you have to take into account that he was sending a pedal, not an amp.

Bear in mind you'd also need a transformer to convert 240V down to 110V for a US amp.

So's Gabe.

And yet there's definitely still a leap of faith involved when you're sending money or goods to someone you only know from the interwebz. And yeah, shipping an amp is more expensive and involved than sending a pedal.

Don't take this the wrong way, but who in their right mind would do this?

This reminds me of the Nigerian scam they talked about on Dateline. The one in which the thief gains people's trust online, then sends them counterfeit American Cashier's Checks, convincing them that they can't cash it in Africa, etc. The unknowing person cashes a a few thousand bucks, wires it back, and a few days later the bank or FBI contacts them about the counterfeit checks.

If you really want one, search online stores! Ebay has a listing as we speak(type).

Shoots sorry about the link mods. I was just trying to prove a point though. This ridiculous request sounds too much like Dateline drama. Sorry again about the link.

I'll do it. PM me and we'll work out the details.
Just up front, know that I'll only do this if it's by the book. That means a legitimate, verifiable form of payment which must clear before I send anything. I will ship with a verified and insured method, and I will document everything legally and properly i.e. I will not label anything as a "gift" or misrepresent the value to bypass taxes.
If you're serious about this, email or message me.

As long as you send the money first, I don't see how anyone can have a problem with this.
I could do it for ya if Roc decides not to.
Peace.

SOrry I missed this thread.

But yeah as said, I truste Slats, youve made a lot of posts. I felt you we're a guy I could trust. I had Kerry sen me a Fulltone, since he had built me a pedal earlier, I trusted him. But since he wasn't around I asked you, as you said, you're a guy you can trust!
