Stagis for over $1500?


Recommended Posts

I am not listing this in the For Sale, because I am not the one selling these and people usually look there for decent deals.

There are a few Stagis listed on ebay for over $1500. One of them is a "or best offer" which means that you can offer a price much lower than listed:

(I bought a Frontalini equivalent for $60 that was listed for over $200 that way).

 

But the others are by this seller named: "Roxy*Media" where that is the "Buy it now" price

One is a 48-key English. Last time I bought and sold Stagi 48-key Englishes, it was for between $400 and $600.

This one is a 30 key Anglo, and all NEW 30-key Stagis that I see are listed for a much lower price:

I can find Lachenals for less than this. And since when is there a such thing as a "Vintage" Stagi?

 

I guess I am just getting old!

Are these scams too, or just someone "whistling in the wind"? You see many 'tinas way overpriced on ebay. They generally don't sell and just keep reappearing! The owners just don't seem to learn! The definition of stupidity is to keep doing the same thing and expecting a different result!

That crazy roxy*media* guy has re-listed the overpriced "vintage" Stagis, for the same absurd prices. I thought I would attempt to send him an email asking why I would pay $1,664 and $1,521 for concertinas that I can buy new for under $1000 anywhere else. But when I tried to "Contact the Seller", it eventually brought me to a screen with this message:

 

We're sorry we couldn't find an answer for you. Unfortunately, due to the high volume of messages this seller receives, they are unable to respond to your specific question right now. We suggest reviewing the item again to see if your answer is in the seller's listing.

I notice he is also offering a Castagnari Lily melodeon for around double the new price from The Button Box!

Hmmm....

I tried contacting him, using the links in ebay. I was going to send him an email asking why I would want to buy anything for him, when I can buy the same thing brand new elsewhere for less. But, I got some pop-up screen saying that they cannot send messages to that user because the volume of messages being sent to that user has been too large.

He is at it again!

This time I noticed that there is a box to enter the quantity that you want order, and it says: "10 available". Also, this time he has it classified as "Electronics".

 

This has to be some sort of scam, and whoever or whatever is posting these does not seem to have much of idea of what a concertina actually is. I am not sure how to report this as a scam since I am not sure what I can use as evidence.

 

Maybe somebody else here, who has more time to examine this ebay posting can find something incriminating and report this clown.
