Scam warning!

Post by InhumanJ »

:!: beware as I have a posting looking for a rear subframe and was reached out to by user elonandy via direct message on here saying they know someone with one. When reaching out to that contact email. Payment options were odd offering Zelle and Apple Pay. Apple play flagged the payment email as a scam. Took another look at the users profile on here and they have been a member for 10 hours. A quick search of that email on google brought me to this forum post on another site where users were also taken advantage of by this scam and flagged it. Posting this to help save you all the trouble.

Link to that forum post which show the email addresses in question.

Report the scammer to the admin and they will block him. I got a few messages from a couple recently too.

Yeah I recently had some scammers reach out to me about some want ads that I posted in the Buy Sell Trade forum. Already reported to the admins.
