We had a few exchanges of email and I asked the right questions about CB. He assured me it was because he was upgrading to PROTOOLS. He seemed genuine but clearly he is not. He claims to be in KENT. Gumtree deleted his ad after I reported it but he just keeps re advertising and the price is going up. Currently its £170.
Report it to Gumtree.

The police don't think I'll get anywhere but you never know he way be an idiot as well as a thief.
So now I need to sell my granny etc to buy my copy.
