    Scammer working the car forums


    If you can leave two black stripes from the exit of one corner to the braking zone of the next, you have enough horsepower. - Mark Donohue

    In such case click the report button, even when you get a PM, then it will be reported to the mod team and we can make action immy and ban them.

    Please be especially careful when new registered members w/o any post send you PMs/ post in a search thread and mention to contact someone else. Today a member reported this and we banned the scammer and deleted all his posts:
    xxxx has reported a private message.
    Reason: Guy claims to be selling an e32 750il 3.15LSD, sent me pictures from an ebay ad for an e36 m3 LSD. Created the bimmerforums account the same day he sent me the message which was a bit suspicious to me.
    Sent by: xxxxxxxxx , Original Content: Email Micheal in Miami, He has a 210mm 3.15LSD for sale. Here's his email michaelrobert101970 @ gmail.com

    There were a lot of posts/PMs by that scammer on the same day
