Someone on melodeon.net has pointed out that the same concertina is apparently being offered on Gumtree by "Gillian".

The OP in this thread is a new member with no profile.  This may be entirely genuine, but they don't appear to know much about concertinas.

The seller's name on Gumtree comes up as "Henrietta" when I click on the link above. Very strange.

Originally, it was 'Gillian', and came up with a supposed photograph of the vendor and a puff for the Prison Service.

Then it was changed - as you say - 'strange'.

 

I think that though the title has been changed to 'English' on GT, it's not possible to do that here?

Neil, you need to understand there are a lot of scams around concertina sales, often using photos taken from a genuine sale, so people here are by default suspicious of any new advertisements which appear inconsistent or contain obvious errors, as this one does, and especially when posted by a new member who has provided no other information about themselves.
