i put my guitar on craigslist and i live in Florida. Last night i got an e-mail from this guy sayin he wants it but he cant come pick it up because his child is about to have to have a kidney transplant and he has to stay with his kid for 2 weeks. so im just like wtf. and then he tells me he will just send a mover to come pick it up and send me a check in the mail.

then i said well where do you live because if you're close i can just bring it to you. he tells me he lives in Portland Oregon. what the hell. how did he find my ad in forida and how is he going to send a mover. is this guy just a fake trying to rip me off or rape me or some ****?

Most probably (and by that I mean almost certainly) a scam.

What's the big deal with Gibsons, anyway?
I've heard loads of Gibsons being played before
and they don't sound any more special than
any other guitar.

just tell him that you'll need to get the check and let it clear the bank checks entirely before you'll let anyone take the guitar.

You should never hear from him again.

he's asking for all my contact information first to send me the check. Should i give it to him?
#12
it's a scam, don't take any money from the dude. good move is to keep leading him on and then send him a threatening e-mail or a box of poop.

no, the cheque is very possibly going to be a very real looking but fake cheque. nearly happened to me once, ironically I found out about the scam on craigslist. the cheque would clear in your bank, but a couple of weeks later the bank would find out it is fake and charge you for it, with the possibility of legal action against you.

just tell him that you can wait for 2 weeks
