SOLD! Minelab GPX 4500 Pulsed Induction

Recommended Posts


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!

Not that I would have purchased this machine Steve but THANKS for keeping an eye out for these type of things.

Zap, Pow!!  The Forum Warden strikes again 😁

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:

You could require a phone # and physical address for people placing ads on the admin side hidden from the public. That might discourage some the scammers.

And then I have to verify it how? It's a free service I offer and I am doing more than most out there to deter scammers but the bottom line is it is 100% on the purchaser as far as I am concerned. There are very simple ways to protect yourself but people are easily hooked with offers of good deals and common sense goes out the window. I can't be responsible for any of that, and as a free service if I am to be some kind of 24/7 monitoring service..... kiss the Classifieds goodbye.

I appreciate the suggestion, truly, but I think we just had a couple isolated incidents. There were no issues here for years and I am sure this will pass. The scammers do get the message that there are easier forums etc. to go after than mine.

      I don't know if the Z7000 has been counterfeited.  Always a concern for Minelab gold detectors.
      This was only a 3 day sale, which probably contributed to the low sale price.  I noticed this lot a couple hours before the close and could have posted here then, but I have a dilemma when it comes to posting auction info (not so with buy-it-now lots).  Suppose a forum member already knows about the item and has either already bid or plans to bid.  Is it fair to him/her for me to generate competition (and thus a higher cost)?
