If you get the money in your PayPal account I don’t see how it is a scam. I’ve done many deals this way.

Banks like to have agreements making the customer the bagholder if anything goes wrong, allowing them to suck from one account to cover something in another, even if it was the banks carelessnes that allowed the fraud. That's why it's wise not to use the same bank for everything. If you maintain a balance in your PayPal account, that balance is always hostage. I don't know if Paypal will also try to suck from your linked non-Paypal accounts, if something goes wrong and it wants you to be the bagholder.

Note from Steve Herschbach. This member was a scammer who joined the forum and worked the system to place a rip off ad. It was rather sophisticated compared to most so I moved the thread to this “scam thread” to preserve the discussion.

Hmmm, you pulled the ad without responding to my perceived and possibly incorrect issues. Maybe I offended you and if so I am sorry but if that is too much for you to bear it’s ok by me. I am taking the lack of response as confirmation and pushing the ban button. Assuming at this point you are a scammer I have to say your guys command of English and your ability to mirror conversations is getting pretty sophisticated. Good to know... Thanks!

Looks like the detector and "Rods" are both "no longer available"..........:ph34r:

My BS/scam detector was screaming like a GPX on a manhole cover.

  Steve I don’t know where you find the time to be so vigilant along with posting your comments and advice and still have time to detect and have a life.  I assure you it is appreciated.

Thanks, Wes.

Thanks Wes, I appreciate that. Detecting is a small part of my life and not the most important, but I love it. It does get crazy at times but then so do I! :laugh:

Bottom line is outside of just wanting this to be a safe place to trade gear I really do detest thieves. :angry:

      I was looking around the new Minelab website and I noticed they now say the Equinox is single frequency on Gold Modes, is this some sort of error or are new Equinox 800's coming without multi-IQ on their gold modes?  I found nothing wrong with MultiIQ Gold modes so I don't see why they'd change it.

      Equally adaptable for all target types and ground conditions:

      Used Cherry Pick settings from the Handbook for  a brief session in a local park.  Found a penny, the handle of a spoon.  If it ever was silver plated, that is long gone.  Then found a quarter-sized disk, a token of some sort.  It says "Where a kid can be a kid" on both sides and one side was stamped OTTS.ORG.  I  just tried that website and it is apparently closed.  There was a message to the effect to leave your contact info if you have any business with this site.
       
      Question:  is there something more than the Lesche Predator but less than a shovel -- a mini shovel, perhaps?

      What are peoples thoughts on Ferrite Choke's/Core Filters on coil cables?
      I noticed that with my QED detector a Ferrite Filter came with it to clip onto my coil right up the end where it plugs into the control box.  As I have a few coils I clipped one on each of them as I had a few of them laying around, I was a couple short so I'll have to buy some more to do every coil. 
      Seeing the QED uses them I was wondering why other detectors don't so I googled images of coils, Well it turns out they do...

      Above is a picture of a CTX 3030 coil, note at the end where the cable plugs into the detector is the Ferrite.
      And then the GPZ 7000 also has one, but Minelab did it the better way by putting it on the wires inside the control box.  This method would work better as the wires there aren't already shielded so the ferrite can work its magic better.

      Above is the Wiring Loom, C-Box Coil Connector for the GPZ.   This is the perfect method in my opinion, the wires loop around the ferrite to give the best results and there is a shield wire going down onto the connector.  This could possibly be a method the QED could use in future upgrades to give the best results as putting it over an already shielded wire would limit its effectiveness I would think.
      The filters probably do a better job at helping prevent EMI out of the detector than coming into it, but it would be interesting to know peoples thoughts on them.
      I'm going to order a few more clip on ones to put on my coils I use on the QED anyway as it must need them, these are the ones I'll get, simple clip ons...  5 for $2 🙂

      My detector has been having some problems lately. I have a teknetics liberator. The other night it was chirping periodically. In the morning it wouldn’t turn on. So I checked the connecting points and put a fresh battery in and the power button still didn’t work. When I put the battery in it would turn on automatically but then would turn off after a short time.
      Has anyone ever had experiences fixing this?

      Say I'm trout fishing today and find a 4" quartz seam loaded with visible gold (Googly 'gold in quartz and it's as good as anything on page 1). But, the land is already claimed by an armchair 'miner' that actually just uses it as loooong term camping/fishing/hunting space without campground antics and charges plus it's close to a deer layover area. Say I know this for sure since I met his grandkids and son years ago during hunting season and taught them how to snipe for gold on that very stream since the 'miner' was oblivious as to how.
      What would you do;
      Tell him?
      Wait for him to lapse his claim into abandonment or die?
