    Hey all,

    These two ads by "RCBOALS" are fake, and a scam. He was hacked here on TDPri, and has been unable to sign on and delete. The scammer is trying to get suckers (like me!) to send $$$ either PayPal F&F or other untraceable method.

    DO NOT BUY!!!!

    https://www.tdpri.com/classifieds/martin-gpc-16-2019.9004/

    (He has a Hagstrom for sale that is NOT a scam......although I would beware for the time, as he is locked out of his account)

    If you don’t mind me asking, how did this come to light

    Did you try to buy something and have some red flags come up

    Or Do you personally know this member

    I thought his asking for ONLY PayPal F&F, even after I offered to pay the fees, was hinky. So I did a Google search and found the real RCBoals thread on Gretsch Talk....as linked above. I messaged him and he confirmed.

    Also if you look at the ads I posted, vs his real Hagstrom ad, the differences are obvious.

    Also, yeah......the prices are too good to believe.

    Thanks for the warning. On another note I changed my password too.

    The Waterloo seems to be gone, but the Martin is still up for sale.

    I’m kind of stunned that none of the mods have dealt with this.
