Warning

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

When I joined about a month ago I posted that I was looking for some RF7's. Well on the good news side one of the many great new friends I have made on here Like BillyBob has turned me on to speakers that were great deals and have helped me complete my system. 

Now for this warning. A person on here contacted me about his RF7's. I'm not going to name him yet because after telling him I was looking for Cherry per the post and he had maple...he gave me the Email of a man named Richard. 

Richard sent me pictures of an "A" set of RF7 ii's that looked mint in a great room. Everything looked clean. Great price I felt for 1050.00 delivered. Well he immediately wrote back ..ok put the money in my bitcoin acct and send me your address. Well I'm 62 and although I was born during the day, I wasn't born yesterday. 

While I sat stunned wondering how exactly this bitcoin thing worked...I wasn't about to send out money with no middleman or at least great references from here. 

He and...the first man then sent me Richard's phone number for texting to make it easier. I recieved 3 texts asking for my address  so we could get on with it. I then told both of them, which actually could be one in the same..I didn't feel comfortable about the whole Bitcoin thing and offered to come pick them up so I could hear and see them. 

This next move cinched it for me. Richard turns out was leaving to go out of town until March so that wouldn't be possible. 

This was long enough so I will cut it short. Neither one has contacted me back about me going "after" he returns in march. I hate to judge but this was surely a con. So please buyer beware.

That's extremely funny @bitcoin.  By the way if you are ever looking for work... CSI Albuquerque  could use a talent like you!!!

I want the Sansui amp. Who is your contact on here? 

I don't want to expose him yet because his lead to Richard may have been legit. I don't mind pointing a finger to protect you my new friends here because although he wrote me like 20 emails and 6 texts within a day telling me "Let's get this done" after I called his bluff and said...ok but I'm coming to see them cash in hand I have had zero replies except him telling me he was leaving to go out of town until March. Even after sending him a called your bluff text and telling him I'm reporting this in the forum. I also contacted the member here and he sent me 24 emails and now he has also dropped off the map. If he doesn't respond shortly I will post his member name here.
