Tell him to ship it to you for a complete inspection, that somebody in your immediate family just died and only owning such a fine amplifier will make you feel better because of memories. Tell him that after it passes rigorous inspection that you will gladly pay twice what he is offering since it is coming to you at such a time in your life. Assure him of your sincerity. He will recognize a fellow con artist and drop you like a bad habit.

From the real Manuel:

I sent the scammer an email from a fake gmail account telling him I heard he was selling an amp and wanted to buy it.  The fool sent me his PayPal account and wanted me to send him the money via PayPal friends and family.  I reported him to PayPal.  Let’s see if they do anything about it.

Thanks again for letting me know about this.
