    Manuel responded to me (the real Manuel, different EMAIL)

    I'm not selling a 220. Someone saying I am?

    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.
