Terry--I had dealings with Nadine Molina and she tried to scam me. Claiming she couldnt talk on the phone because she was taking her chemo treatments. Wish there was a way to get attorney general after her

Default Another PayPal Scammer timmy.gally@icloud.com

I got bit on the GTR200 that popped up yesterday (June 4) for $650. It was from a hijacked member profile. I completely missed the big red flag: the PayPal email was completely unrelated to the posterís name.

Donít PayPal any money to timmy.gally@icloud.com. Itís a scam.

And here I was thinking somebody didn't know what a GTR 200 was worth. That was about $400-ish under NIB NOS value. Didn't occur to me that it was a scam. Doh! I don't buy or sell anything without physically talking to the other party on the phone. If they have a bunch of excuses why they cant take a phone call I write it off as a scam. So there is a very slight chance one of the deals I pass up might be legitimate but that's okay by me. I got to talk airplanes with a physical person before comitting.

Default Watch out....MOOR Halley Ray

think an accounts been hacked....

April 29th...sent this guy a FB Message complimenting an interior i saw..asked hi..asking where he purchased his interior from.

never did receive a response, which is ok

Oct 7..Recieved "are you still interested?" message. i replied "would like to know about your panels"...

The reply to that is "well the plane has a couple of interested parties on it so bu the time you get here it may be sold unless you are willing to put down a deposit so i could get the "plan" (not plane ) off the market till you can come look at it"

Theres a special place in **** for these people.

[ed. 'FB Message' ? That's not VAF, but FB. But yeah, trust but verify. v/r,dr]

balechrist3@gmail.com is currently trying to scam me on a WTB part I have listed here. I right clicked the google search image of the part he said he had and it was the same image found on ACS. That and it being pulled out of his Shenyang J8 that he flew for 1760 hours kind of made me realize what was going on.

Anyone have dealings with a Sheriff Burrell. He copied prop photos and serial numbers off a BAS salvage web page for a prop he has for sale. Wonít answer why he did this. Frustrating!

Default I was Hacked

Hey guys, I got an email this morning stating my VAF messages were almost full. I thought that was odd since I don't spend much time over here at all, and for sure hadn't been messaging anyone, so I logged in and noticed someone was using my account to attempt to scam people. I have since changed my password, and I hope this stops things from my end. I hope noone sent this person any money. Sorry for any trouble that was caused on my behalf.
