i'm genuinely sorry to hear that this type of thing happened here.

i know Keith goes above and beyond the call of duty and screens each and every member before approving them here, and to his credit, this place is largely free of scammers, spammers and trolls, and i'm thankful he is our first line of defense.

similarly, we are the next line of defense, so if something seems fishy, report it as soon as you can so this kind of thing doesnt happen again.

The guy has texted me trying to close the deal. If anyone knows how to send a glitter-fart bomb via text, now's your chance.

I once read an article about someone figuring out how to grift someone sending Nigerian-scam e-mails. It would take someone cleverer than I.

https://www.419eater.com/ Perhaps some of these tactics will help?

Thanks for the heads-up, Angry.

This is key. I tried searching peterdaniels in the feedback thread and that handle did not come up. That means that if people were dealing with this person they were leaving no feedback. This can prevent others from falling into the same trap. Dealing on the Classifieds is a buyer beware proposition. Also note that buying from, or selling to someone with no history and no feedback is ripe for getting taken advantage of.

I gotta take a second and throw out some huge props to my bank, USAA. They refunded me the full amount when PayPal had rejected me. All's well that ends well. Thanks again USAA!!!

Jimborello PMed me on my WTB add, based on the fact that he has no post and would not post photos of what he is selling in my WTB add Im thinking he is trying a scam.
