    Default Amusing scam attempt

    I put an advert up on a website a while ago for some valves including ECC88 and Siemens Ba. I've had an email from someone called Sergio Garcia, he's sent me some photos and I managed to get a price off him of 250 "delivered to my doorstep". Wondering if I should play along a bit.

    Tell him that you'll take them, as long as he comes around to fit those Siemens in your amp to test that they work OK.

    Some real high tech looking valves there. Maybe he is on to something we don't know about?

    I imagine the Siemens would have a bulky heater supply, maybe that's the thinking.

    Yes, i would play along for a bit. Maybe 18 holes to start with.

    But make sure you get the rules right. of course you will want a handicap as your game isnt up to scratch at the moment.
    explain that you’ve been feeling a little under par, and that you keep seeing birdies.
    Don’t mention all the bogeys, as that may frighten him away.

    Of course you will want to drive a hard bargain, but just be careful he doesn’t hook you and then deliver a slice when you least expect it.

    Good luck. Head down and follow through !!!!!!
