Beware of scam artists this particular season. I tried ordering some very expensive jewelry for my girlfriend, and all I got in the mail was a danged old prewar banjo.

If it was a Kay, no matter what war, you got scammed for sure.
Thanks for posting that.
I can show this to my Wife so she knows that I’m not the only person this happened to.
Sounds like a cover for guilt. My father would buy a new tool. My mother would question its purchase. He would reply, “I got it for you! Oh my! You can’t use it? I will just have to use it.”
Which old prewar Gibson did you buy? Those are too rare to be not noticed. They are tracked to the current owner. This includes anonymous. Anything else Is “chump change”.
Well at least your girlfriend can wear a banjo around her neck. You cant play a tune on jewelry!
I gave her rings and all my money , where she ran off to. I’ll never know . “It’s a lonesome feeling” . Gary you may be on to something. It’s hard to run with a banjo around your neck . Scam you say ?? Sounds like something my wife needs to know after the fact …
I can commiserate with your switcheroo story. I ordered a $25 pair of knitted wool socks for my great-great grandmother and all I got back was a piece of colored paper, a 1909 Honus Wagner baseball card. What would my friends think of a grownup man with a (geesh) baseball card? Now, if it was a banjo card, I may have responded differently. In order to avoid the possibility of adding injury to insult, I threw the (insert expletive) card into the fireplace, lickety-split. It was a cathartic gesture and I feel a great sense of liberation from the entire matter.
Will F, was she the Railroad Lady that Keith Whitley, JD Crowe and Jimmy Gaudreau sang about? "She hocked 'em for cold cash and left town on the Wabash..."
That’s her alright !
I kn remember my dad gave my mom a table saw for mothers day. Said 'Honey its to make you new kitchen cabinets with!'. The divorce was shortly after.
