Scam Alert

3 users have contacted me regarding my WTB post, and have attempted to scam me by "only accepting zelle" for payments. I have done enough buying/selling stuff online to know the signs, but these guys were quite convincing. Someone more inexperienced could have easily lost hundreds. User names and phone numbers below.

**Never use Zelle for an online payment unless you know the other party**

Darekr - 830-507-3857

Nlo96 - 541-371-2917

deebeemerman - actually used PMs on here and not a phone number. Was extremely convincing up until the copy/paste zelle payment request message.

Darekr tried contacting me as well when I inquired about some wheels on Blessm's thread. Couldn't give me any information on said wheels and then stopped replying when I asked again. :

Be careful out there.

Darekr replied to a thread for Remus exhaust and I fell for it…

Good news is his account was flagged as fraud and they were able to stop the payment.

I got lucky.

Now that I know how not to buy something online…

How do I go about buying something safely on here? Been a lurker for a while but don't really know how to safety buy through members classified

PayPal goods and services end of story there are a few people legit people that don't accept it but those people have verified accounts and tons of itrader rating so just be careful and look.

Good post....there have been a few of those recently. Bottom line don't entertain offers unless it's the OP and always use PP G&S for pmt, funded by your cc.
