Default Raising funds for a stolen guitar.

I am raising money to replace my friend's stolen bass guitar at

My name is Elle and I live in Essex.

A few months ago, the guitar my friend worked so hard to save for was stolen out of his car from behind his flat.

We caught the incident on CCTV, however the police were able unable to track down the guitar.

He worked hard for that guitar for two years, saving £2000. The police say it was a targeted attack on the car, and the guitar and equipment was a huge bonus.

Leaving the guitar in the car overnight was due to his neighbour recently having a new baby, and having a gig the next night he did not want to risk banging the guitar or the amp through the front door so late that night and so early the next morning. A thoughtful action which cost him dearly.

We have been saving and have a total of £500, but we are hoping to replace this for him on Christmas Day as a gift from all of us. He has had a rough year, with two family members being ill and him supporting his partner, who has been suffering with serious mental health issues. He works building medical equipment for hospitals and it will take another two years to have the necessary funds to purchase a replacement.

I would be eternally grateful if you could help us raise the funds to make sure his year ends on a high.

With all my love,

No way in hell I'd ever leave one of my guitars and/or amps outside in a vehicle overnight for any reason. Not even one costing 1/10th (or less) that amount.

This has all the usual elements of a scam... innocent victim, medical health problems, even has a tug at the Christmas heartstrings thrown into the story. I can practically hear the weeping violin music playing in the background.

Somebody break out a crying towel.
