Mr rio2 doesn't show up as a member.
Not anymore, Joey took care of him
Got this odd sounding message yesterday based on my WTB post. Member is new as of yesterday. Fit pattern of previous scammers. Per profile stats he has been in conversation within the past hour, so still working it.
Watch out !!!!!!
Got a message from the same guy replying to my WTB ad Robertmain001New Member 0 0 0 Add Feedback Messages: 0 Likes Received: 0 Joined: Yesterday Location: New York Local Time: 1:49 PM Have you checked with Fraser in 22043 via email@example.com, he has 62 Savoy 440 Mopar mega block wants to part with. I purchased items from him in the past and they arrived in top condition.
Tell him you would like to buy a 440 Hemi block and wait on his reply. Lol
Scammer, I showed him the door! Thanks for the tip.
That Robertmain001 replied to my WTB post last night also, inbox was empty this morning
Just got one from lubafenniman in response to my wtb. Verbiage in pm identical to one mentioned here already.
Forwarded to Joey so he can follow up. It is best not to engage with these fools....use the Report button, and alert us without getting involved yourselves.
How can you tell if it's a scammer? I got a PM from the lubafenniman guy this evening. What the heck are they looking for? Sorry for the stupid questions.
Mostly we just get a sense of danger from what they post...the rest is up to technical wizardry.
I'm embarrassed to say I 'sorta' fell for one of these scams. But when it became apparent my money was going to a financial institution I had never heard of, I pulled my head out of my ass. I contacted Joey and he confirmed the scam. Joey also did NOT make me feel dumber than I already felt. Rather he asked how HE could better protect me from my own stupidity. Thanks Joey for your help and professionalism, and not making me feel like a complete idiot.
Hi all. I was contacted twice, to two separate ads I placed on WTB to contact a friend who has the exact part I am looking for. I never paid a dime to anyone. It just didn’t feel/sound right. Good job and thank you FBBO for the warning and picking up on the scam.
just a reminder
Had one respond to a WTB on the E Body Forum.
In a shallow grave in the desert outside of Vegas?
something like that
