Default Scammer Alert!!! Please read

Received a text from phone number 919 289 9080 . He found my number on the parts wanted section . Said he had a 69z radiator tag I was looking for . Knew it was a scam . Called him and he sounds like a foreigner. Said he owned a z and sent me some photos off the internet. Baited him with questions and he fell for it . Watch out for this scum bag !

I received a private message from a member named “Gaul” that responded to my wanted ad, saying he had the 1970 Chevelle bench seat cover I was looking for. He email me a blurry photo, and then sent me another photo from that same 919-289-9080 phone number (of a completely different seat), d’uh.

Meanwhile, my LS6 Chevelle survivor is still looking for a better seat cover… please excuse the shameless plug. ;-]

I got a message as well. I ask for photos of the item, the DA sent photos of something that was not even close. Be aware.

If you purchase a part from anyone on this site or others even from people you know. make sure the email they give for PayPal matches the person....and stop using pal f and f. unless you are sure of who you are sending money to. just an fyi

I just got hit up by "gaul" as well on a wanted ad I posted. He gave the email address [email protected] com . Admin needs to boot that guy off the site ASAP.

Thanks for the heads up guys. Father-in-law got hit by a scammer for a new computer last week.

I ALWAYS google the phone number and email when buying something off someone I don't know.

I would recommend the next time someone posts a scammer, put the name, phone # and email in the heading. That way it comes up in a google search.
