Exclamation Scam Attempt !!

10 days ago, or so, someone claiming to be John James attempted to sell me an item for 3K !! It was an obvious scam using fake photos, had very poor English, and had no clue what I was talking about !!
The e-mail they used was [email protected] I guess the world is full of crooks ! Be careful !!

He/They responded to a WTB thread of mine for a non repro scope and mount. We went to email and he sent a couple of pictures and when i asked for more there was no response. A few days later i did a google image search on one of the pictures and it turns out they were from a auction on another site in 2006.

Many thanks gentlemen.
Definitely the usual warning flags...did a little digging and found his IP matches those of previous scammers, possibly same guy, so he's gone.
And appreciate your persistence kkd, despite other's attempts to hijack your effort...hope you don't mind, but cleaned that up as well as it was non-additive.

Had a PM response to one of my WTB posts from "tizoapp" - [email protected]
Just joined, zero posts, broken English... I suspect it may be a scammer mods you may want to check it out.

Good morning Joel.
Sorry for the delay in circling back on this. In addition to your post, we received some reported PMs from other members regarding this user...confirmed he is a scammer/spammer and was removed that day.

Same for "xethubao" if anyone received any PMs from this user.

Exclamation

All,

We've received reports of members receiving spam PMs from a username of "AdminGiftCardRaffleMOB"
I've removed that user and doesn't appear they are an active scammer, but if you have a PM from them regarding a raffle and a gift card, do NOT open the link included in the PM.

Any questions, please let us know.

Regards,
Rob

Thank you for the heads up Daniel...IP matches previous scammer and the email address doesn't match one provided for registration, so I've removed him.

Thanks,
Rob
