Thanks to ZdaMan (y)

We banned another scammer!!! sophia charlotte was the name and is now banned!

Continue to be on the lookout... new members with zero or very low post count with bad English trying to send someone's email addy for you to contact.

And another scammer gets banned thanks to Gearheaded!!! (y)

mg217 was the name and is now banned. Once again, he just signed up 3 hours ago and sent a private message to Gearheaded stating his friend had the parts he was looking for and to email his friend. Keep looking for these morons and send me their names so I can ban them!!!

Hey Kevap

Please look into this member for us

Just got a message in my email from him

“ I can help you out with a lead. Please contact Anthony on [email protected] regarding your request. He is located in Texas, and the last time I talked to him, he had 15-19 R1 Aftermarket 3/4 Exhaust for sale. I purchased items from him in the past and they arrived in TOP condition.”


I am not sure if this is true info or not but smells like big o SHIxxxxx to me! And with the recent scam outbreak activity, I want to be on the lookout for other fellow riders.

thanks much

Hey thanks to both of you... hard to tell who legit.
Actually it is pretty easy. Just look at the date they joined and their post count. If you see someone who has been here 6 months and has 100 posts... you can feel confident buying from them. Even more so if they've been here for years and has 1000's of posts. Like me for example. :p

The post count thing kinda makes sense however there are of course exceptions. I joined this Forum back in 2006 and only have about thirty posts.

I read more than I post.

You're good due to your join date.... it's the combo of zero/low post count and join date to look for.

I've banned a few more... one even PMed me and said his friend has the parts I'm looking for and here's his email. But get this.... I don't have a WTB thread? I replied to someone in the wtb section though, so I'm assuming that's where he got my name from. I think I'll go make a WTB thread just for scammers to PM me. LOL

Thanks for looking out for us! And also those who’ve reported these! It sure gets old always having to look out for this crap. But I guess it’s just the way of the world. 😢
