I deleted the rvkits14 and gibbsquintarius accounts. Thanks for the heads up.

It’s interesting that he’s selling a finished empanage kit a finished right wing but is also asking what’s still available on the “cleaning out the hangar” thread.

Default I got taken by a pro...please be careful out there.

I did a post on the B website for a wanted ad. I posted needing a canopy for my RV-7.
Guy calls and gives me a story and he was very literate and I felt so lucky he called.
I bought into it. He said he was clearing his dads stuff out in CA and his father had died of covid a while back. Gives me a story about the RV-7 he had and the previous RV-6 with a leftover canopy still in Van's box.
Says he was just going to toss it and a friend had messaged him about my ad.
The prick was a fast talker and since I was talking to him by phone, I thought it was legit.
These scammers are good and I learned a good lesson at the expense of 550 bucks.
Whatever you do. Ask and verify then verify again.
If they get pissed let it go.
Never again. I just wish I could find the guy... oh how I wish I could find that crook.

What's the process to finding out if a long time member here is scamming others? He's had more than enough time to contact me after I paid over a week ago (25 AUG) and he has contacted another buyer, but hasn't actually sent anything that was paid for by us.
Sadly sold my RV-8 but enjoy life by living on my airport with FREE campsites & FREE facilities for all visiting pilots to enjoy while I putt-putt around in my OnSpeed equipped Wilga waiting for a used RV-15 to hit the market
