    BEWARE of SCAMERS on the forum

    I have recently been contacted by 3 scams after posting a WTB add. Be carful, this is how they do it:
    -they send you private message informing you to contact someone at an email address they give you. Then you email them and they send you pictures but only accept payment with paypal gift or other insecure ways.

    These are scamer and emails they use:
    jergra tommorgan017@gmail.com,
    FranBee francisburton1500@gmail.com
    swarez67chrisjh365@gmail.com

    All joined the forum the same day they contacted me or a day before. The only safe way is to use paypal with buyer protection or better yet to meet in person with the seller.

    Thumbs down Scam warning

    If you recieve an email from a new member with 0 posts referring a friend/email that has your needed parts beware. They had a few parts I needed and sent pictures but only purchased 1 to see if legit. They still haven't sent part and want me to order more to save on shipping. Beware as scammers like this that spoil the site for good people enjoying their love for cars.

    Yes I have been contacted by this goon that uses multiple alias He had quite a few parts with pictures so I wasted $30 on 1 to see if legit. He wanted me to purchase all of them to save on shipping. Still hasn't sent part and still requesting to purchase more parts. Johnmain, Elvis Dotsun

    I have reported the ones that came my way. And they was revoked quickly.

    They tiped contacting following:

    dbana1712@gmail.com

    chrisjh365@gmail.com

    melissabrown1500@gmail.com

    But I guess is about pointless listing up what mail adr they use. Because they use so many and it is real easy to auto generate one new one for each scam with little efford.

    They are so easy to spot tho. They even use pictures from this forum to illustrate the "part" they have for sale.
    One even sent me pictures of wrong item and starting to try convincing me it was the right one I was after (first picture on Google using name of part I WTB). When I confronted them they sayd sorry, wrong picture. Here is the correct one.. That one was still the wrong part, and picture nr 2 from the Google search

    currently have "markle" trying to scam me sending me to georgerust34@gmail.com

    The message from stevko above is exactly the same message I received from a scammer directing me to John Morgan <johnmor221@gmail.com>. Same schmuck obviously.

    This guy just PM'D me, I reported it but watch out for these these types of messages. They are scams, and they seem to be happening more often.

    I repeat: when you get such an PM, click in the PM on the report button and report it to the mod team, then the mod team will take action.
    But with your post above without user name just mentioning: Got a PM telling me to email errolmontiero6@gmail.com Throw it in the bin
    we cannot make any action, as the user name is missing.

    All you have to do is report them. I left the forum for a while because the scam attempts were too much, but it seems they won’t stop.
