Beware of scam artist

It was brought to my attention on Ukulele Underground that a member by the name of BabiiDrew671 claiming to be from Washington state has copied a picture of several ukes from this blog and posted them up for sale. This is a scam and please do not deal with this person. If you see a "for sale" picture that's taken off of this site, do not deal with that person. I have never actually sold a uke with pictures from this blog. I've always taken fresh pictures of all ukes I tried to sell. It's disappointing to find that someone out there is trying to take advantage of others using pictures I've posted. I sincerely hope that no one has been affected.

that guy actually PMed me asking for a ukulele trade. I assume he planned to have me to ship out my ukulele at the same time he supposedly shipped his. The only problem is that his ukuleles did not exist.
