Thefinn, thanks for the latest alert Thumb

For anyone looking for parts for sale, please be alert to scammer who send you a PM offering you parts for sale.

These would be via members who have no posts to their name and example messages are the following.

Quote:
"Email Michael at pz994488@gmail.com regarding your request. I'm sure he can help. I bought from him and I was satisfied with everything. Jonesville, NC 28642.. This guy is TOP Notch".


Any deal offered would be very low and below the market price however payment would be requested via a Bank Transfer, which can not be refunded.

THIS IS A SCAM

Should you be approached by PM from a user with zero posts, then cease all contact, do not send any money and contact site admin '911uk' so that we can block the user.

Members should always conduct necessary due diligence on any parts sale, especially with any transaction outside the UK, paying only with a recognised 'refundable' payment method

The same buyer fraud protection applies, especially in terms of the payment method, avoid western union, money gram and a bank transfer.
