    Attention! Beware...

    Login to stop seeing this advertisement

    There is a scam going around on popular forums where a new member will send a private message to those who make "Want To Buy" forum posts. The scammer will say something like this:

    "Have you checked with holmes in 38901 via holmg72@gmail.com, he has xyz he wants to part with."

    The unsuspecting forum member will then make a deal via this email address and then never receive anything. I Googled this and found a similar report on Audi World. That post also mentions another popular forum had similar messages.

    Unfortunately, we've had one member report they've been scammed out of money. We've found two accounts that are sending these messages. They have been banned: alfredc72 and FUHolt3


    Naturally, do your due diligence when making a purchase over the internet. Both these suspicious accounts had very few posts if any, so that is a red flag. If you receive a suspicious message contact me immediately and I'll take action.

    I just read this report and that's why I am posting this at 1:27 AM. Please be cautious when buying things over the internet.

    From my perspective, scams during covid jumped. Maybe it's all the extra free time. I'd say to always pay with a credit card or Paypal, but the scammers have those guys figured out now, and I'm ashamed I got caught twice; once for my hobby ($55 refunded) and once for a pair of $70 jacks (no refund). I won't post details in the open, but it's brilliant.

    Just a heads up. I came across a scammer sending unsolicited messages to members. Their account has been closed.

    If anyone ever gets a suspicious, unsolicited message, please contact me at once.

    Naturally, do your due diligence and use common sense when making a purchase over the internet. A heads up is suspicious accounts have very few posts if any, so that is a red flag.
