"Found in a church basement during renovations.." no way they could be dishonest.

Sadly the biggest penalty would be possesion of stolen property. You have to be super careful with how you get it back by having indisputable proof the horn is yours if you go to law enforcement like a police report or bill of sale. The serial number though is usually enough. Good luck.

Part of me doubts the seller actually has the instrument as he's using photos from TubaJohn's TubeNet post - same carpet.

Since it was stolen four years ago, is it possible it was recovered, that TubaJohn and Jose are one in the same??

Now I am intrigued...
Who needs four valves??

PM to 58mark:

Hello Mark
Have you considered removing today's "stolen tuba" post in the main section? The horn in question Conn 2x seems to have appeared in the "off site deals". Then discussed in 'tubenet' from cl ads it appears that the seller knows something about tubas so he might be on the site from time to time, this might interfere or compromise investigation and recovery.
Thanks, Joe

If anyone has a quick contact to Mark run this by him, thanks,Joe

PS Good sleuthing TNFJ and best wishes for recovery.

Yeah it's mine. I didn't even notice they're the same pictures I took. That's in my old house! I'm going to contact the seller because this is very strange. May be a scam but who knows. Luckily insurance has long paid for this horn but I'd love to get it back still if this is a legit post. Thanks y'all

Definitely a scam. Seller won't allow play testing just wants to ship it outright sight unseen even though he states no shipping on his ad. He offered to send me a check so that I can earn his "trust". Lol

Aaaand just like that, poof, both ads magically disappear. He gave me some weird address that didn't even resister on Google maps after he finally agreed to let me play test it. Then checked the post and it's deleted. Thank y'all for looking out! These scammers need to get a life

Not to mention that a Houston ad said something about a church basement. Churches around Texas don't have basements!

I was thinking the same thing. Maybe he actually meant the Alamo basement, and that THAT may be where all our stolen horns are ending up. Who would have thought?!
