See post #9 in this related thread in the Garand section of the Marketplace for explanation about new users awaiting account comfirmation, with zero posts for whom a member search turns up nothing...ghrkhril12 is one of them.

http://forums.thecmp.org/showthread.php?t=196769

And as per my last post, that user has been removed.

This goes beyond the spam PMs mentioned previously...these are outright scams! These folks are actively "casing" forums and targeting folks with specific items they are wanting to buy.
Report the PM to us immediately if you get one!

The verbiage of the PM will be similar to one reported to us tonight:

Yugo m70b1 parts kit

contact me for pictures and details,james_honeycutt3@aol.com




All of these users have been banned...but, it can and probably happen again.

.
This lowlife SOB is at it again. Same email address as above but username is gennub5.

Needs an immediate ban.

Payment address given was:

Denise Avery
3781 highway 77
russellville AL 35654

Thank you...he was brought to our attention and removed on the same day, along with about 4 other alias usernames he had registered.

Thank you...per the other thread, he too had previously been identified as a scammer and was removed immediately after he was reported on the 29th.


**
Based on IP addresses, the same individual was responsible for both usernames above. He will be back.
As has been mentioned here in this thread a few times, as well as the other thread in the Garand Marketplace section, take the listed precautions and they won't succeed.
Users who are offering to sell something and have zero posts should be a huge red flag.
Any questions, PM me with the username.

Exclamation * Warning *

Skulls up for everyone...

There's another scammer trolling the Marketplace, looking for users who post their e-mail address in their ad.

Ignore and delete any email received from this address:
jamesjohn3k7@gmail.com


Any questions, please let us know...

Rob

Yep.

List your email in a post, and the world can see it.

You are open for all kinds of scammers.

Keep your email to PMs, the scammers don't see it, unless you give it to a scammer, hope you do not. Only give your email to trusted, did I say trusted members.

All,

We've received reports of members receiving spam PMs from a username of "AdminGiftCardRaffleMOB"
I've removed that user, 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
