After short and easy negociation on price, this guy called Jerry thomas insisted on arranging a local pick-up by his courrier company and ask for my home address, phone number, etc.

I found this requirement a little bit suspicious so I proposed him to pick-up the goods at my office. Never heard from him again.

Be carefull sellers, maybe a new way to get info for break-in. You never know...

Seems it is a scam from the search I did on google.

Hey Folks,

Just to be clear, it ain't "this guy". These scams are perpetrated by groups rather than individuals. It is organized crime we are talking about here!

Happy Trails!

So just wondering. If you give these guys info like your name address and that.
What can they do to you?

This guy tried to hit me up too. I was suspicious at first, but when he asked for my mailing adress including country, I knew it was phony baloney.

Hello.... this is CANUCK audio mart. Ha ha.

I'd report it since it is a virtual certainty that it's a scam; plus the fact that the guy might actually send over his accomplice to try and pick up your gear. The money order is undoubtedly a counterfeit one. Best to report it to the police. They might even want to try and pick up the accomplice to have a little chat with him.

there won't be an accomplice. Let me take a wild guess, he sent too much money and wants you to send the extra to a "shipper" through western union.

He sent me a 2700 dollar money order from Winnipeg for my 450 dollar item and he wants me to send the rest thru West Union to somebody in Ontario. I have never agree from day one but I don't know how he could get my address. Should I go to the bank and check out the money order ?

check if the ink smears...if it does its fake, banks don't print their cheques using a ink jet printer. I had one of those fake cheques ..it was the same scam where I had to send the difference
