I received two messages from a Forum member in Asia,The first message appeared to be asking Me to help getting strings(E9) since there is nowhere to buy in His Country.
I replied saying that strings can be purchased from the Forum or else google "pedal steel strings"
His reply said that He hopes I can help He cannot afford to buy strings !!
I wonder if any other members have had the same request.

Billy, I can’t afford a new S10 MSA Legend and was wondering if you could buy one for me, I need the S10 as I am elderly and need something light. I look forward to you placing order for me. Oh Well Very Happy

All Scottish steel players are very wealthy

The three players, on this thread, are all retired ...and don't know how much they are worth

I received another message from the same player? He still cannot afford strings but seems to have advanced to C6 since He is now looking for Me to buy and send him E9 and C6 sets of strings.

Am I the only member here who has had this request?

Awwwwww c'mon guys & girls let's help. If we all get together and collect aluminium slugs. With the price of aluminium so high if we can get 4 tons together that should be enough for the poor chap. He'll have to pay for shipping.

I got the same message but replied that I don't sell strings!
Suggested Jagwire.
As it was through the forum I thought it was OK to reply.

BTW I noticed that all the members who got the request are living outside the usa, strange, I would think that the members who have the easiest acces to strings live inside the usa

No, I got this message a couple of weeks ago also.

I did not reply to his email, but sent a separate email to him (did not want to get infected).

I told him that I would be happy to ship him strings, no matter where he lives and that he could pay me up front.

Of course, I got no reply. hehe

And by the way, 99% of the product orders that I ship, regardless of what it is, are shipped within 48 hours whether I have the money in advance or not.

I sincerely trust our steel guitar community and when I am questioned about not getting a payment, here is my reply.

In the 30+ years I have been trying to help fellow steelers with Premium Product at a great price, I have only been bit once for $87. Found out later, the gent had passsed away.

I tell everyone that if you are going to get me, get me big, not for just a little steel guitar product.
Besides, if I get bit, that player will never be able to show his face or purchase though the forum advertising again.

Hey Bill, considering this is a thread about a potential ripoff “artist” and you have mentioned your own service policies, let me take the space to thank you sincerely for your long and continued service to so many within our community. Are you going to continue your accessories sales from Florida? Very best wishes.

In the link Donny Hinson posted look close at the steel players hat and shirt. He may get his strings from a Military PX, or a relative in the USA.
U.S. Navy hat and shirt says retired with a unit emblem.

I also got this message three times a few weeks ago. Sounds like a scam to me also.
