Re: Watch out for this scummer

I received another one from him today, on a want add.
I replied, Go away! Not that it would do any good.

Re: Watch out for this scummer

I got scammed. It was just for $15.00 USD by Paypal for a sealing iron that never arrived. I let my guard down for this scam. When I replied to the given e-mail ,he sent back photo and everything- looked real good.I just wish I had seen this thread about the scam before I got sucked in.It seems they are picking on the items in the wanted section. It was a good lesson learned for me. Don't reply to third person PM's. There is also other heads up for this scammer on the other websites that I visit. I feel sorry for the other guys who lost a lot more cash than I did. I will be more careful from now on. Be on your guard guys.

Re: Watch out for this scummer

Right on all administrators, do the best you can. You can't control and monitor every thing all the time without paying someone to do it as a full time job earning a living. They live among us and learn to prey on all of us.

Its funny that nobody mentions the scammers on this site that are good standing members. I'm talking about the ones that misrepresent what they sell.
The site can't be responsible for anyone trading in bad faith. That's why its buyer beware.

Cheers Floyd
