FOR SALE & WANT ADS; From time to time, space permitting, will list customer ads. In the old days before the advent of the internet, Ads that were placed, were from people I personally knew and could vouch for their honesty and integrity. Today, with the internet, I receive ads from people around the world, whom I don't personally know. Therefore I advise caution in your dealing. I am sure the people who do place an ad are honest, but I want you to view the items and use caution in your dealings. This is not an endorsement of any product listed for sale. Remember -Caveat Emptier! Check things out before you buy. Caveat Emptor!
Well I never thought I would need to warn sellers, but there is a new scam going on with big ticket items that you should be aware of. It goes like this:"I want to buy your (piano, music box, organ). I live in another country and my agent will be acting for me." They give long-winded information in poorly written English concerning how the deal will be transacted, but they never ask anything about the item itself or the shipping details. They go on to say that they will be sending a check, always for more than the asking price, and want to be refunded the difference. (Why send a check for more than the amount?) Since they all use the same method of operation, they're easy to spot, but they are a nuisance. If you are contacted by such a person, report them to your local police and FBI and lets get these *#@$# (I cannot put the words here in print) off to jail where they can make license plates and be a productive member of society. Always confirm that the check is good, wait until your bank confirms the check is good, before releasing your merchandise......And don't send a refund or pass money to a moving company until you have confirmed the legitimacy of the check you received.
