I've seen several fraudulent listings on Ebay for Musser vibraphones. It's easy to spot because the description says to contact the seller directly via Gmail and pay outside of Ebay.

Just thought I'd let anyone know since we are all looking for a great deal.

Yup, I've noticed this as well, especially since one of the posts is of a vibraphone that I own! This is it:…

I bought this on ebay back in January from a guy in Pasadena. The scammer has just copied the listing and reposted it as if it's still for sale. I've reported this to ebay several times, but they haven't seemed to do anything. I see it posted every few weeks. Beware!

Thanks for bringing this up, Glen. I am constantly reporting these. They get removed in a day or so.
I see 3 of them a lot; Deagan Commander II with pick ups and cases, the M55 that Roger mentioned and a beautiful M75 in custom foam cases.

maybe when someone reports it, they should post here and we should ALL go and report it. it will look great. we'll get them down quicker.

let them scam sax players.

These particular ones I mentioned come up ALL the time (like daily). Maybe put a button under the VW banner, or left side of page?

No, a button in VW to a VW page containing list of fraudulent vibes including copies of actual text and pictures that they post. Links to eBay won't be valid in the future; they take down the items.
