ive just stolen this from anouther forum
Theres a guy doing a scam at the moment kinda like Fusion Dude pulled here a while back. He posts up saying he has a garage full of car parts to shift, all very rare, desirable stuff. ANd great prices. Only accepts Paypal and if anyone wants to collect he goesa bit quiet on them. Usually claims to be rebuilding a V8 Landrover but whatever the forum is (Opel Manta, Mk1 Astra, Ford Escort) he's got piles of stuff for them from an old project.
Needless to say people get excited, pay him hods of cahs by Paypal and then he dissappears...
Examples of him in action
he took the Escort guys for well over a grand before he was busted.
Please keep it in mind that forums are no more trustworthy than the local rag and probably far less safe thean eBay.
Be wary out there. If it seems to good to be true it probably is and if someone won't play ball with cash on collection then run a mile.
