Hello,

Sorry to make this thread outside of the normal "What's it worth" one, but I need help pretty quickly.

Someone if offering me a CIB Little Samson for $350 and I need help spotting something a copy that is fake. Check out these pics. The price just seems too good to be true.

No board pics: no buy.

pictures are too small to really have a good look. Sure looks mint but how can we tell if it is legit or not from those pics?

Do you think PayPal would cover me if I could prove it was fake?

I would have proof claiming that it is 100% legit.

I'd say "probably" they would cover you... but it is a gamble. I'd want to research past examples of this and find stories online from folks who tried to use PayPal to cover themselves after being duped.

I was gonna say, 350 is an absolute steal for a CIB Samson...if a deal is too good to be true, it probably is.

Damn Bootlegs and scams, I really also worry about legit carts with fake boxes and manuals to bring up values. Cause what if the board was real, could someone prove the box was fake or would they even bother to find out be reselling it?
