Not going to name and shame as im a relatively new member (by post count) but i put up a wanted post in the classifieds for parts required and have received two suspicious private messages this week from “members” who have the parts I need, both members have zero posts and are new accounts and both have asked me to email privately outside the forum

You see alot of scammers on facebook these days and they seem to have found the forum, just a little reminder to do all the right checks before you buy that part you desire Thumb Thumb

Users should also be on the lookout and AVOID at all costs any contact from zero post members contacting them regarding parts for sale or wanted that originate from the USA.

Another fraudster "sonnhalterrobert" has been caught using the email matthewsalazar376@gmail.com

Never added to this before but in the last 24 hours i have received 2 messages from the same person for 2 parts requests i have asked for in the last 3 months.

Both came from this user (sonnhalterrobert) and PM read:

Contact Matthew in Missouri, He has a ***my requested part*** for sale. Here's his email matthewsalazar376@gmail.com

I imagine this is a scammer due to the identical email for both items...

As soon as we were alerted to this on the 25 Nov 2019, the offending account was banned.
