i got an AMAZING april fools joke like this

said basically, arp 2600, seems to work. been sitting in my moms basement, all i can get it to do is bird chirps. no emails PHONE CALLS only with my number. needless to say i received over 100 calls and texts that day and the next from some really hilarious and desperate/excited people hoping to score a great deal. had to turn my phone on airplane because of the annoyance. an amazing prank :yay:

just to show that there is some humanity left in the world..

I actually AM getting a 2600 placed in my studio so that I can learn how to use it and then teach the owner... all while we work on a mostly hardware deep house/dub techno live project.

its like, pretty much, the, best thing thats ever happened to me.

of course.. we'll beleive when we see this thursday.. but the dude is a great friend who works at a violin repair shop doing multi-thousand dollar finishes and his dad apparently bought the thing for his mom when it was new.... been in storage for a decade or more, he says he has the manual and everything. (not a synth nerd at all, in fact he is just barely starting to get into electronica in general).

fingers crossed it actually comes with him, turns on, and sound great!

Well, you can tell from reading it that he's not American, and not a native English speaker. Neither of which rules out a legitimate deal, of course. But this pretty clearly seems like a scam.

Saw this one a while back on Mpls CL. Never jumped on it cause I didn't have the cash at the time. Glad I didn't.

I told him i would only do it as local pick up or if I get to pick the escrow company. Why post it for sale if you are going to leave the country.. did he take it with him? (unlikely) so i should be able to pick it up locally.. it's sketchy as hell. hahahaha. I can't even take it seriously but we'll see..
I also requested his full contact info. I would never do a deal like this with out confirming his address and talking to him on the phone. I'd also need to see it first. so many factors. Which is why i'm having more fun with this than anything.. It's not legit.
The fact that others here have seen the exact same ad in other cities is clear proof that this is a scam. There is ZERO chance that this is legit.

BUT - you can have a lot of fun, if you're interested - go to www.419eater.com for helpful tips and tricks on how to totally mess with scammers, waste their time, annoy and confuse them, scare the hell out of them, etc. Even if you don't want to go through with it, the site is awesome.

I had thought to do a similar thing but for a West Village NYC apartment below market rate to get back at a shitty boss. Didn't end up doing it. Perhaps I'll inspire someone here...

Not sure someone would do this unless they a) have WAY too much time on their hands and little imagination, or b) are a sociopath who get off on messing with people's emotions. I have seen other similar "jokes"--the $100 moog modular--truly hysterical wastes of everyone's time. Not. :roll:
