    Default WTB: TWSBI ECO transparent orange

    Looking to purchase one of the TWSBI ECO transparent orange models. Iíve recently become enamored with orange pens and thought this would be a good place to start. If you have one laying about youíre wanting to part with let me know.

    Aahh, good luck with your new affliction. I became enamored with orange pens some years ago, and eventually succumbed to a full-blown addiction. The addiction presents itself as the amygdala overpowering, and even disabling, the prefrontal cortex. There are some preemptive actions you can take, though, such as putting your assets in a trust fund and appointing a trustee who is not a pen addict.

    Seriously, though, there are some incredibly beautiful modern orange pens. Delta made some really nice ones. And the TWSBI orange is pretty but very had to come by. Enjoy the hunt and your catches. And welcome to FPG.

    There's at least one person who almost always responds to WTB posts, claiming he or a friend has just that thing. You need to beware. Being a senior member here with a 100% feedback score indicates that he/she isn't likely trying to scam you.

    Stands on Feet is giving you excellent advice. There are usually a several red flags to be aware of with the scammer(s): 1)As Stands on Feet stated, the scammer will say that they/or a friend has exactly what you are looking for;2) They will provide an email to contact them/or the friend; 3) If they provide a photo, it is usually just one, is copied from somewhere else, and frequently is not even the pen you are looking for; and finally, they have likely joined FPG very recently, or more likely, changed their avatar name recently.

    There are tons of great folks here on FPG, just keep your radar tuned for the very few #%@%#&%*$ bad apples.

    If I do get an offer that looks legit I might have one of fine folks check it for me if thatís OK. I donít typically buy used pens except some vintage occasionally. Iíve been off pen forums for a good 10 years so Iím pretty much new at most places 😁
