Re: Amp Scam - $1 (Vancouver)

condition: excellent
You may have seen ads for vintage/older Fender amps that were either being sold for an estate or in need of repair. They’re always based in Vancouver. The latest is a silver face Champ. As someone learning amp repair, I’ve reached out to the poster of two of these ads.

It’s a scam, folks. The person will offer to let you cut in line if you just send them the price of the amp with PayPal friends and family, effectively leaving you zero recourse when they ghost you. If you try to pay PayPal goods and services, they’ll use the nonsensical lie that they can’t possibly take full payment that’s refundable, because they’ll have to ship the amp. Uh huh, sure.

Don’t take the bait. Scammers suck.
