    WARNING - we've had a number of scammers lately

    Buyer and seller beware! We've had reports of some very odd scams forming on the LXForums lately. Please, do your research before exchanging $$, parts or services with anyone. Do some extreme vetting of your own. Check their rating, check prior posts, get referrals, use an Escrow service, phone a friend. Also, do not enter your user name and password into any links or odd looking URLs. The latest scam involves someone who cloned the LXForums and was asking people to log into. I'm assuming to get login credentials to run other scams on the site. I'm talking about you Viperking (you little prick). If this happened to you please change your password ASAP.

    If something seems weird please report to the staff and proceed with caution.

    -Dave

    I received a PM from Viperking concerning a trade for my grill that I have up for sale. A link was posted on the PM to show some of the items he had for trade. I deleted right away.

    Bump for visibility.

    Also, for stuff for sale here and on other forums, remember that if you're buying stuff from a stranger, never ever send money through PayPal as a gift or via Western Union.
    Make sure seller can provide you pics, preferably with their user name and date shown on the pic with the item. Get a phone number and call them if necessary. Too many scams out there. As said in an old TV series - "let's be careful out there"

    Thanks for this thread, it prompted me to post iTrader feedback for a deal from last month.

    Feedback is one good way to let other LX'ers know who the honest guys are.

    If a drunk guy falls in the woods and there is nobody around to hear it, did he make a sound?

    NEVER send money via Western Union for a purchase from a stranger! Even they recommend using their services only for friends or family and state in writing that there is generally nothing they can do if you have been scammed using their service.
