I took a counterfeit check for some gear I was selling. The police are pursuing it as a fraud case, therefore I seriously doubt they will be of any help in recovering my stuff. Seems like stealing is stealing but oohh well..the law is what it is.

Where you come in is if you spot my gear somewhere let me know. If your selling stuff privately don't accept a check for any reason. This is a new scam going around, people working classified ads with counterfeit ID and checks.

My gear is:
G&L L-2000 series E, electric Bass. White with rosewood fingerboard. serial # is B0211297
Ampeg SVT 400T Amp, rack mounted in an SKB 5 space rack.
ADA Bassline 2-10" speaker cabinet with horn 8 ohms
Legion Sound 1-15" speaker cabinet, 8 ohms

The Perp. goes by the name John R Armstrong. 520 Folly road box 325 Charleston, SC
Check was on Heritage Trust Credit Union Charleston

WM Late 30s early 40's black hair small fancy Van Dyke style facial hair about 170 pounds slim/medium build. Working the Irmo Columbia Area apparently. Got me out of The Carolina Trader. drives a late model Mazda millenium, light blue.
This cat took me for $1350. be careful and be aware. I will reward a solid lead if you come across one. Please pass this on to your friends.
Thanks!
Jeff

Jeff,

That bites man! This must be why I keep all my gear. Same kinda thing happened to a friend of mine in Atlanta a few years ago. Checks and money orders are being counterfeited more in the last several years due to the rise of better technology.

To piggyback with Jeff's dilemma, TAKE CASH ONLY! If they had the money to put on a check or money order in the first place, they could have given it to you that way. Unless the person is someone you've known for years and have a certain level of trust with, I would not suggest taking anything other than cash.

Thanks for the condolescenses and the leads.

Cash Only doesn't work either. Every time I spend anything bigger than a $20. It gets marked with a pen at retailers. Now they are marking $20's, too. Trust but verify. Get all verifiable information from any one you deal with, buying or selling. That's the best defense against fraud

Info is that John R. Armstrong has been trying to sell the gear off in the Columbia area, so keep your eyes open in pawnshops, used instrument dealers etc.

I got one week to claim it if he moves it, but then somone else gets rooked.

This guy is apparently a pro and has a collection of stolen items by some reports.

This guy may be from Belvedere, SC. He is probably living somewhere in Irmo, SC, perhaps with a younger brunette female. The Mazda Millenium may be hers.

Thanks, Y'all. I may be a sucker but at least I got friends, and I sure appreciate every one of you!!!!
My Best!
Jeff
