    An invitation to be wary. Very wary.

    Right now there’s a Pilgrim harp on ebay. I’ve already contacted ebay about

    this, and they promised me they’d investigate further.

    I sold this harp on ebay over a week ago. The transaction has gone through

    without problems, and the harp is on its way to its new owner, who lives in

    CA.

    The harp in the current ad is actually the same harp I sold. The ad uses my

    pics (without my permission) and an edited version of my ad, even down to

    claiming that it’s got a ding in the column (as does my old harp) and that it

    has been recently checked over by a qualified technician (as was my old

    harp).

    I would urge anyone that finds harps, espeically pedal harps on Ebay to move cautiously and gather all the info you can from the seller to make sure it is legit.

    I have a funny story, I bid $800.00 on a L&H pedal harp acouple months ago. The bidding reached $10,000.00 and the harp was sold. A few days later I got an email saying the buyer pulled out and the seller wanted to know if I was interested in the harp. I wrote back and said I only had $1000.00, (I was sure he wouldn’t sell it that cheap) He wrote me back and said I could have it, I was floored !! I couldn’t believe I was getting a pedal harp this cheap. To make the story better I live in Ohio and the harp was in Pennsylvania, about a 4 hour drive. So I told him I would come pick it up and pay for it then. I couldn’t beleive it when I got an email telling me he was in England and I would have to send the money there first, then go pick up the harp. Of course I refused. I guess it’s really true what they say, “If it’s sounds to good to be true…….”

    I sure am glad I tried to find some information in Google about the ‘Tsinghai Pedal Harp’ and got a link to this site.

    These scams are multiplying like Easter Bunnies, I’m averaging at least 4 – 6 a day for the used harps we have listed on our classified section and the scammers on EBAY are becoming just as troublesome as well.

    This is a little OT, but I occasionally use PayPal for on-line or private purchases, although I have stopped using ebay.
