          $1200. I guess it was too good to be true.

          But then again, maybe someone emailed the seller and then flagged it as spam so no one else could get it. If that's even possible.

            Definitely too good to be true.

            I did see a legit $1750 Andromeda less than a year ago. Part of a commercial studio liquidation sale (not uncommon lately). It went in less than a day.

              Total scam. I replied to the ad and this was the response I got:

              Hello,

              Thank you for your interest in my Alesis Andromeda A6 Synthesizer
              Keyboard. As mentioned on my ad , the selling price is US$ 1200.00 .
              It
              is a small price for this, but I need to sell it real quick since the
              doctors recently discovered that I have diabetes and I need money for
              the treatment ( like many of us, I am unemployed) . I recently moved
              to Hibing, Minnesota looking for work and I listed this on craiglist
              since I tried here to sell it with no luck. If you want to buy it , I
              will pay all delivery fees and we can do this by a very secure method
              for both . We can use eBay for this ( they will secure this
              transaction by using one of their lawyers to receive your payment and
              hold it until you receive the item from me and inspect it ) . If you
              want to know more about this, just let me know.

                There was a legit one in LA for $1500 a few weeks ago. I talked to the owner on the phone, but he didn't want to ship it.

                  So you're saying you don't trust ebay's lawyers??!!!

                  I'm sorry to hear these scumbags have gotten hip to the allure of the Andromeda. This is a disturbingly well written "script". Often there are tell-tale West Africanisms in these emails, such as leaving out the personal pronoun in sentences ("Am a petroleum engineer working in Nigeria...") and constantly using the term "Item".

                  Just in case anyone reading is new to this, Craigslist is only for local, cash and carry transactions, ebay doesn't run an escrow service or have "transaction managing" lawyers, and any transaction involving Western Union or Moneygram is a scam.

                    DANG IT! I already dropped my credit card in an envelope and mailed it to him. I'll be gone for a few days as I chase after that mail delivery truck across the nation....

                      My kids are already working in a coal mine for this guy. Too bad I don't have kids. I had to scam somebody else to get some for him.

                            Prices took a jump up when Alesis put the A6 in the 'discontinued products' area.
