I got one from edharp this morning.

Looking for SRT Wheels

Hi,

I can help you with a lead regarding your request. Please contact Davidson on [email protected] regarding your request. He is located in Florida and can arrange shipping. He is trusted.

Thanks

Immediately threw up a red flag for me.s davidson - I asked him to send me pics of the wheels and he indicated that he was just an agent and that I should contract the owner - a​
So I decided to play this out cause I had some spare time last week and contacted the email address and received a response from a Harris Davidson - I asked him to send me a pic of the wheels with today's date at which point he indicated that he was just the agent and that the wheels belonged to a Mrs. Williams Olivia.

He gave me a phone number of (224) 676-941x and I messaged the "owner" asking for pics - I received a text back saying that they had no time and that if I wanted the wheels, to send the money via bank transfer. I told the person who texted me that i thought it was a scam and left it at that. I then emailed Harris Davidson and told him I thought he was a scammer and he came back with "That's your cup of tea a$$hole. You should discuss better and stiop acting like an ANIMAL that you are. FOOL!!!" LOL

The reason for this update is because another new member is sending out PM's - user chopperjoe - this time the email address is [email protected] - so beware - or you can play it out and waste their time like I did :)

Please remember report any suspicious PM's - thanks to the user who reported chopperjoe.

If the mods are able to extract anything meaningful from this info, I've been seeing/hearing increased reports about an old foe with new abilities:

XRunner: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XRumer

This serves as the bot agent to infiltrate and setup the accounts. From there human operators can step in once an unsuspecting user has interfaced with the bot. -Again, don't know if that helps at all.

Bumping this up again. Remember...

DON'T SEND PAYPAL FUNDS AS A GIFT!

DON'T USE WESTERN UNION!

If you remember nothing else about taking precautions when buying stuff, remember the 2 points above.

Hello, thanks for the warning.
I haven't ever bought anything from this sight before. Do you buy chance no how i would go about paying for a item? Or can some tell me where to go to get this information, on a safe way of paying?

PayPal is plenty safe, just don't send the money as a gift. Pay the transaction fee for sending it as a payment so that they can cover you in the event that you are ripped off.

Galactus hungers...

Paypal is fine but use services/goods. There is a %charge but its worth it for protecting both ends. Read the buyer/seller protection tho. Some things may require a signature on delivery to use a protection.

Anybody use zelle? I like it because it goes straight from one bank to another. Instant money transfer and no fees

Bumping this up again so people can read it - DON'T SEND MONEY AS FRIENDS AND FAMILY VIA PAYPAL TO A STRANGER! WALK AWAY IF THEY ASK FOR THIS!!

Also, 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.

People who scam car people should be shot and then run over lol it is really disappointing the amount of scammers these days....I prefer to do business in person to avoid this or use something like Paypal where you have some kind protections...Never just send or wire money!

Can't you make it a requirement to post pictures with your username and date with the item? That would help for people who actually don't have them.

Did anyone flag these people to admins to follow up or post here to warn others?

Simple... don’t trust anyone with an account less than a year or two. It sucks for the legit people but better safe(ish)? then getting ripped off.
