    Default I got scammed on this very forum last week. BEWARE!!!

    On my post looking for a butter knife, some dude messaged me saying he had 2. Was only going to give him $15 since they are not that much new. There were so many clues I should have noticed. He asked me to use Whatsapp to communicate and Cash App to pay. On Whatsapp he didnt seem to know what a butter knife was.

    Anyways, then he asked me what else I needed, so I asked if he had a chin spoiler. I was thinking it was a scam, almost said send me the butter knife then maybe we can do more business. First he said $130 for the chin spoiler. I said I'll do $50 and he agreed. Dont worry about the shipping he said. He didnt either. I asked him for a pic of the chin spoiler and he sent one-sure enough I just found the pic using a google search and scrolling down a little bit.

    He told me it was shipped then never gave me a tracking number. Then didnt reply for 2 days until tonight, he gets on and says he was on his way to ship and fell to the ground with low blood sugar, and could I send $20 more to get this shipped. I said I would send a UPS label and that was all I heard from him. Supposedly his name is Donald Lunsford but who knows.

    If a seller on a forum can’t use the forum to communicate and doesn’t accept PayPal, I buy elsewhere, period

    Sorry to hear that happened to you CVS. ALWAYS use PayPal for any transactions with anyone online. It protects both parties from being scammed. If the other party refuses to use PayPal, just walk away from him/her, and look elsewhere.

    I received multiple responses from different members ( probably the same person) in regards to the Down Under Bracket and the Modified Inner Fender. But, what caught my attention when I checked the profile was that this member on EACH MEMBER NAME had a JOIN DATE of August 2020. Same response to call/text on WhatsApp. This idiot is a scammer. I never replied.

    Sorry to hear that happened to you Chris. Pay Pal is a must with strangers. You should post up the users name also.

    If this is a member/s here on this board, then you need to take all the screen names to the Admin here. Or at least take each screen name and report them as scam. Other members could be effected by this the longer it goes on. The admin has the tools to prove/track all this. I, for one, would love to know the screen names.
    I am almost always working on a bike. If you have questions and need an answer quickly, just call me. 317-507-0940. Always up late. There will be time for sleep when I am dead!

    That screen name was just created 3 weeks ago and they had been online within the last 3 hours looking for more victims I guess.

    If you feel someone is spamming or posting fishy stuff, just click the report button on the bottom of their post. It will go to the Admins and they will look into it. I would also say to put the info out on the FB groups as well about the name. There a lot of folks that dont come around anymore.

    For all those saying to use PayPal, you can use ANY bank card and stay protected. You think PayPal will save you? What happens when you pay with PayPal and instead of shipping your parts, someone ships you a brick in the box? All the seller needs is a tracking number showing it was delivered. That's all. PayPal ain't ****.

    Another thing about PayPal, I have been trying to contact them for MONTHS on the phone. Nope. No one there. All communications are via chat. Of course no one is there either because they're backed up. So you leave a chat msg, they reply a couple of days later. So you reply thinking they are there...... Nope..... They moved onto another left msg from someone else so you reply and you guessed it..... A couple of days later they reply back.

    So let me tell you guys something........ PHUCK PayPal. Better use your bank card where you can go to that branch or at least call them and they answer a damn phone.

    I currently have a thread up looking to buy a couple small parts, hopefully from someone parting out a 9, Im in no rush for them either

    But a PM I got, first message was “message me on WhatsApp” and I remembered about this thread.... needless to say I didn’t buy from that guy!

    I created a WTB for a M109R2 headlight assembly.
    I've been receiving private messages for the following, all have accounts that was recently created and are trying extremely hard to get me to respond. I just ignore them.... Be aware!

    You can text or message me on whatsapp if you are still interested

    He is also working hard to scam on many other sites. I'm a member of 4 snowmobile sites and Isent a WTB request... he is pushing hard pressure on me as he constantly create a new profile and telling me he has the stuff I'm looking for. I report as a scammer but still continuing playing his scammer role...

    As an admin on another site I can tell you that blocking IPs does no good. If its dynamic then they use release/renew IP and if its static then they just use a VPN to mask the IP
