Wusthof on Craigslist... Real or Fake?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey Guys,

 I was looking for some knives on Craigslist and found below set of Wusthof Gran Prix II 12 pcs for $150 in Dallas, TX, which is way below market price. I was about to buy it but then I saw same exact item in Austin Craigslist as well with slightly different price & description. 

I got suspicious and tried to search internet to see if there are any reported cases of fake Wusthof. Didn't find any.

 

What do you guys think?

One of the listings has been pulled, which is not a good sign. 

 

I wouldn't recommend buying a set of knives in general. For many reasons that have been discussed to death here before.  There's a lot of filler blades in there and the design is generally not considered ideal by most cooks anymore. 

 

And it's suspicious on a few levels as you noted.

 

Avoid.

as the comedian sez  . . . . and here's yer sign:

 

"Cash and no negotiating."

 

buying _anything_ over the internet "cash" / money order / wire transfer / bank check /  PayPal "gift" is _the_ NUMBER  ONE sign of fraud.

 

use a credit card - NOT a debit card

or

PayPal but NEVER send money "as a gift" for goods because PayPal will tell you to take a hike.
