awya1475 I just got one also. 1 post .
friend has one . got an email from a guy in Virginia.
my 1st thought was to look here. low and behold.
I guess there is no way to stop this. maybe a warning in classified area to watch out for this ?

Re: Watch out for this scummer

Good idea Len. I too experience the same. I leave quick + feedback and get no return.
In the future I will do the same.

Re: Watch out for this scummer

Used to leave feedback after every transaction , mostly selling and fir every 5 or 6 sales may have received 1 buyer feedback on average. The way I do it now is when I send the tracking number, I add in that feedback will be left when feedback received. Now the ratio is very close 1 to 1 instead of 6 to 1.
If buyers are too lazy to follow up with feedback when the item was received then I too didn’t find the time. Works much better now.

I have known Sammy and his dad for many years and I've never known them to be dishonest. As with all transactions, do your due diligence and be careful but let's not get carried away. His lack of personal information looks suspicious and he is now aware of that. I just left him some feedback for some servos he helped me out with. Now we can welcome him back to the hobby instead of trying to chase him away. lol

47120 Oh I see I will have to update that. As I have been using my phone.
Thank you
Sammy

Ironically, your name and location are absent from your profile. 🤔
