    I have this WTB thread:
    http://www.sevenstring.org/forum/guitars-sale-trade-wanted/261443-rg7620-vk-other-old-mij-rg7.html

    I got a PM from this user:
    SevenString.org - View Profile: Tetra

    No posts, greetings from Sweden vs. Copenhagen at the profile - nevermind, I wrote him a mail, asked for images. He sent me some, the first 3 from this auction:

    Ibanez RG7620 VK 7 String Guitar w OHSC | eBay (ebay item 151214778907 if link doesn't work)

    I asked him whether these were his own images, his reply:

    Nice try. If he offers something for sale to you, do not waste your time replying him.

    Bank transfer to a complete stranger? Why not birthday, social security number and tax information?
    Good catch man!

    I had this happen to me once on here a while back, but I reported it directly to a mod and forwarded the message on to him. Guy was gone the same day. Keep vigilant, we get idiot scammers on here from time to time! :agreed:

    I've gotten these, too. Just report it to a mod when you get these so they can ban the asshat. (And it should go without saying that you never send $ to these guys, but I'll say it anyway just in case because, you never know :lol:).
