Watch out for these damn scammers! I ban them and they sign up again... it's a never ending cycle.

Just joined up... zero posts... knows a guy and gives an email to contact. DO NOT REPLY and either report the post/message, post their name here or send it directly to me so I can ban them.

Yesterday I banned a scammer who was trying to defraud one of our members. The member was smart, smelled a rat and PM me his screen name. I sent an email to the scammer pretending to be the member. He replied that his paypal account was hacked and had to shut it down. He also stated he would like to receive payment via money gram. As soon as I saw this I banned his account here. USERNAME WAS: km0pop. If you have been contacted by this member do not, I repeat DO NOT send him any money.


Recently there has been a huge increase in scamming bastards attempting to steal your money!!!

Please be on the lookout for anyone who has zero or very low post counts and sends out his email address. Biggest common scam tactic is to tell you to use money gram for payment, giving some bullshit reason why he can't use paypal.

If you get a PM from someone who fits this description... DO NOT SEND HIM YOUR MONEY! PM me and I will ban their account on the spot. :fact

Got another one. I actually got two when I posted about needing a rear wheel. Don't know where the second account went though.

Name is julianrichard14973

Thanks... just banned that account. I probably banned the 2nd account. When that happens you won't be able to see the scammer's info anymore.

Please be aware of shady peeps trying to steal your hard earned cash. They will have just signed up have zero or low post count and want you to contact someone via email. This is a SCAM!!! Just be smart and don't fall for their traps. Their new thing is just posting in your WTB with Hey or Hello. If someone matching this description contacts you via PM, please PM me the username or post it in this thread.

Scammers have now started to create for sale threads. One said R1 Part for sale. ROFL Really you can't even give your part a name?

Another just put Engine in the title and said for sale in the text. Watch out for scammers they are dumber than a box of rocks. Just be sure not to be dumber than they are as that's how you get scammed.
