Default Beware of this seller!!!

Please be aware of Tom Newton of Hardwick Massachusetts. This guy is a dirty double dealer! Please dont waste your time with this guy. Heres the story. Late yesterday he posts a clean mij set on facebook marketplace.I send a message last night asking if its available and telling him that I got ca$h in hand. Early this morning at 6am he responds telling me it is available and he gives me his address in Hardwick Massachusetts about an hour away from me in Connecticut. I immediately respond telling him im about a hour away giving him a ETA In between 8and 9 am. At that time i gass up the truck and haul ass up there arriving promptly at 8:30. I knock on the door and this JERK looks like he just saw a ghost and he tells me that he just sold it. minutes before. i go but we texted! and he says its first come first serve. Its JERKS like this that make the vintage drum game not fun. So i got 2 hrs wasted and a half of tank of gas gone! So please if anyone comes across any postings from Tom Newton of Hardwick Massachusetts please ignore. The man is a 1st class A hole!!!!

I had the same thing happen with price.
CL listee has price for a set of cymbals.
Calls me and says somebody else says they'll pay more.
He tries to jack price up and I tell him go take a hike.

If you had the time and inclination I'd take him to small claims court.

I wouldnt go that far. But putting him on blast on this forum was enough for me. I just wanted to put the word out to fellow members here that TOM NEWTON of HARDWICK MASS is a real scum bag! Please save yourself the aggravation of dealing with this loser.

I would wonder if he actually had the set in the first place, and maybe trying to con someone out of payment long distance.
