    Hey Everybody,

    Please make sure you do not do business with Matty578. He is a scammer and will sell you something that will never be shipped. I bought a LSD from him and never got anything from him. So please be weary.

    Thank you

    Scammer Alert: Dudleytittle (Member 907752) - Future Rules Change Suggestions

    How naive was I trust this guy was genuine without checking his profile. I bought a brand new pair of E46 Amber Indicator for $30 shipped until I realized this guy has an account revoked by the forum.
    He uses this number 973-826-0454 to text me, and paypal address is makalir04@gmail.com (Paypal shows her name is Rose Makali). He also insists to use Zelle or Cashpay.

    Initially agreed to $30 shipped, but he "realizes" the shipping is expensive and asked me to cover additional fee or ask me to buy more stuff along the shipment.
    I said no, and asked for a full refund. If you can't cover the fee, why bother to sell at a lower asking price? This is not forum sales work.
    Anyway, he BS me with having the inconvenience to create shipment and time for quere with a BS photo, and decided to take away $10 for the inconvenience that he created. WTF?
    Fine, I know my $30 is down to the drain, so I accepted whatever he asked and see what he would respond, but he ignored me. Here's the conversation:





    This guy also has much more expensive item in his E39 wheels for $1800. BEWARE!!!!!!!!
    https://www.bimmerforums.com/forum/s...Style-65-1-800


    Here's some future forum rules suggestion:
    1. only member with at least 1 year of registration should be allowed to post in for sales forum
    2. each for sale post should require a time stamp (a piece of handwritten paper with nickname and date) to prove the seller has the actual item and showing the actual condition, just like reddit for sales rule.


    I learnt a very inexpesive but important diligent lesson, and will not deal with any of these low life animals again.

    Is Zelle safe to receive money from strangers? It's a great way to pay friends, family, your coworkers and almost anyone else you trust, but it shouldn't be used to pay strangers. If a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Zelleģ doesn't offer a protection program for authorized payments, so only use Zelleģ to pay people you know and trust. https://www.zellepay.com/financial-e...%20and%20trust.

    Want To Report a Zelle Scam? Here’s How: If you signed up for elle directly through Zelle, immediately call their customer support team at 1-844-428-8542.
    For unauthorized transactions through a participating bank, contact the bank’s fraud department.
    Also submit a report with the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center. If your financial institution or credit union denies redressal, file a complaint with the CFPB. https://www.aura.com/learn/zelle-sca...e-marketplaces

    Every forum I am a member of, except a Ford Model A group, has a "beware of scammers" thread. They are some of the most active threads, right up there with "best oil" and "what did you do today" threads! Sad.

    Suspicious new member

    Hey guys,

    Has anyone dealt with a member who goes by "Blythe247" ? It looks like their account is fairly new and I can't find much information them. They messaged me saying they have parts I am looking for but the pictures of the part look like they're borrowed from someone else. I asked for more pictures of the part and he sent me pictures of a different part.

    If anyone can vouch for this person, please do because there are several red flags already.
