I'm curious how exactly this scam would work, he lures you over to look at his kit in hopes you have 4 grand stuffed in your pocket and then robs you?
I know ebay has some sort of buyer protection policy. Clue me in.
Honestly, I don't think it's a scam, but more of a clueless seller. If you look at both the CL and eBay posts, they are both from the same area/city. The pictures that were posted here of his actual floor tom clearly show hardware/cosmetic issues that don't justify the asking price. I'm just at a loss as to why he won't post pictures of the actual kit. Others have mentioned that the ads have been hacked. I don't think that's the case here.

What we really need is to find a member who lives close and willing to check out the kit, complete with pictures.
