    Potential Scammer Alert

    Hi All

    Please be aware of someone on here by username of paterson. He has contacted my mate this morning regarding a z20let engine, requesting bank transfer of £100.00 now and £400.00 upfront on delivery today via courier.

    Admins, tried searching his name, but nothing cums up. He hasnt made any post, so might want to look into this.

    I work in the banking industry, and I would just like to warn everyone regarding situations like this, always be sure of who you buy from and respectable members on her with decent post. Try to avoid using bank transfer as much as possible unless its trusted member etc, and it is very hard to track back funds and can take up to months for anything to be resolved.

    Just thought I should warn anyone who might have receive any messages from this person.

    People like this spoil it for everyone

    Well he's been about today!!

    Not posted, must be looking through for sales trying to scam folks.

    It's one of the reasons why another forum have closed their 'for sale' section down to members only. That way you have a little bit of information on the person to help if any reason should occur to investigate.

    I've checked and he's joined on another forum. Again, no posts. He joined nearly 2 weeks ago!

    He has got an email addy on there and it's not Martin or Nick
