A common scam has been reported here involving a situation where you may receive an unsolicited private message/conversation telling you to email someone for a part that you're interested in purchasing.

The scammer may then show you fake (but credible) photos of the product and have you send money for it. Of course, the part is never delivered and the paypal account closed down to avoid chargebacks.

If you receive private messages resembling this, please report it immediately (using the Report function in the message)!

Unfortunate that there are scummy people in our community that are trying to break the trust on these forums :doh::doh: hopefully you guys are able to ban their entire ip from using this forum in case they are actually a member of the 10th community

Yep, checking the usernames and google search, I was definitely a target of the scam.

The person uses these identifiers:

Karen Schultz
[email protected]
985-243-3361
$redyred547

I was sent a DM from “JoseS”, who strangely enough now I can’t find the DM from them.

Because that spam account was already spam-cleaned, which includes deletion of all their PMs sent.

Cash app. It's gone....
If you’re unsure, always use PayPal invoice. Even if it’s a trusted member, it’s always best to use PayPal invoice. Seller is legit and trustworthy, until they’re not...
