      Agree with Rod but most scammers stick out the minute you get them on the phone , or to many red flags . If itís legit the all the small things make sense

      I received a bunch of replies when I posted a wanted ad for an LSA supercharger and all of them were worded just like that. It was even worse on other sites too.

      at least with paypal, you could pay, then put a hold on the payment as long as you don't call the money "to family/friend" to avoid fees.
      but if it's to good to be true, it probably is.

      We used to have a minimum post count before someone could put up ads. Not sure why that went away, but might help a little to bring that back.

      I don't know if I agree with that....its not uncommon for people to join simply to sell some parts. The buyers just need to be "smart" about the dealings. Scams are all over...even on Ebay/FB/CL and I'm even starting to get scam Paypal emails....And here we say voter fraud is a impossibility lol.

      I have something in the works for setting a minimum number of posts and days before you can post in the classifieds secition. I think during an upgrade long ago that didn't get set back up.

      I have never been crazy about people signing up to sell something and then going away. Sure some people will just make stupid posts to work the system but I think it will weed out at least some of the scammers. If it doesn't work it will be easy to turn off.

      The recent scam attempts have been coming not in the For Sale ads, but through PM messages.
