Disregard post of SL30 FS by me. My account was hijacked. No such item FS. Password changed.

[ed. Joe, I saw you said your account got hacked. I've locked down your account temporaily and will reach out shortly via email. We'll get you back online shortly. I deleted the SL30 listing. v/r,dr]

Got a private message from williams3 saying that someone he knew had what I was looking for, and to contact them at A quick google search showed that email is used for scams on several other forums.

Hilarious that williams3 profile says:
love to sing

Yeah, I bet...

[ed. I just banned that williams3 account. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. v/r,dr]

Default Scammer responding to WTB

Texted me from this number: 320-349-2168

Seemed legit at first - providing basic knowledge of the equipment.

Asked for gift cards -then reluctantly provided this PayPal:

Provided cropped version of other’s eBay photos for “his” stuff

The coming of the internet has been a miracle. It has put the knowledge of the world at everyone's fingertips. But at the same time it has brought us all into personal contact with the darker side of humanity in that we are all now constantly exposed to criminals. I am not exaggerating when I say that I am personally subjected to attempted scams via my email and text messages at least 3 or 4 times every week. It's just astounding.

I know that it's better for the psyche and the spirit to have a glass half full attitude to the value of humanity rather than a glass half empty attitude....but the sheer number of these internet criminals makes it tough to remain positive.
Actually it's very helpful of them to provide another clue that they are a scammer It's surprising to me that they continue to use tactics that set off alarm bells for most people, but I guess it must work for them some of the time.

Default Possible scammer as well

I responded to an ad for a prop with a very similar theme - cancer treatment and having to sell everything. Got one set of pictures of the prop and very vague about records. Next set of pictures were of a different prop.

Default Scammer

I posted a wtb ad in the classifieds, I get a pm from morrisondarren239 telling me he bought some items from coaviator360 and gave me an email link. I emailed and got a suspicious sounding offer for a cyl. No idea of hours or info about it, just a will you purchase question at the end. I see this morrisondarren239 guy in another scammer post. Just wanted to put it out there.
