Default Warning Scammers Active on the WTB section

I have had multiple attempts by a scammer or scammers to enter into a sale of a part I had listed in the WTB section. I asked for pics of the item and then what name they use on here. None have been members. There are other things that signaled a need to be wary. Just a heads up.

I had similar experience last year when I was looking to buy a Marvel conversion. Also make sure to search the internet for the images they post to ensure they are original.

Shazan256 played a well orchestrated game. Almost got me. Provided a lead, but had Spoofed another member address. WTB is a dangerous minefield. I'm out.

I just got 2 emails from a Kevin Samuel and McRaven Kevin regarding my WTB ad. The first email just says I have the item requested. The follow up email had a picture of the wrong item and a generic description of the right item. They just make emails with their names and can keep making new ones. Look out for these guys

What a shame when cockroaches like these guys can ruin a trustworthy community like the CMP WTB.
Be Prepared

This number responded to my WTB post I created today. Said he had a remington stock and sent pics. First thing I did was Google the number which returned hits for scamming others on WTB forums such as Allis Chalmers..I think thats how its spelled? Anyways, next I did an image search on the images and it returned multiple posts, none of which were current or linked to this burner number. So I decided to play along for about 2 hours, asking more questions that I knew they could answer easily but I got bored and finally agreed to his inflated price. When he thought we were getting close to closing the deal, I told him I need additional pics of the marks or cartouches on the stock AND his cmp user name so I could p.m.him for "verification." That was about three hours ago, crickets since then hehe. I have too much time on my hands. I wish we had the ability to post these scam warnings IN the thread in which we were contacted so that others may see it instead of here, where it may not be seen.

Fortunately, there are other commercial sites to buy parts and stocks. I would rather deal with the community, when it turns into a detective act to make sure you donít get burned then itís time to stop.
