This appears to be a favorite trick of scammers. As you know, there is a waiting period in order to post. Scammers don't have that patience. They simply wait until you post a Want To Buy ad. There's no waiting period needed for them to answer you.
One good defense against scammers is to only buy from and sell to those who've been here for awhile, and have a history of posting. Dan Empfield aka Slowman
Garagebos57 just tried to scam me on a shifter., be careful!
Ugh. Wish I had read this sooner. Garagebos57 responded to my WTB post for a helmet, the back and forth seemed fine and they had some previous posts but shame on me for not being more suspicious. I sent $150 and they had a few messages but have now gone silent. Been about a week and I never got any tracking info and even emailed the PayPal account but no reply. Guessing I got scammed at this point. Can we get this person/IP banned?
Yeah, I was about to post about this guy as well @Miller04
He ping me via mail using:Clifton Cali <firstname.lastname@example.org> He just sent me the first pic that shows up in a google search for the item I was looking for; in perfect condition, low price, no PayPal account and zero feedback,postst, etc.
