Beware offers from new members to sell you parts

All turboDodge.com members,

PROBABLE SCAMMER ALERT: tincan90

I just wanted to revive this topic from the "Parts Wanted" thread to re-warn our members to be VERY cautious about buying parts from any member that has very recently joined the forum, has '0' or very few posts and that sends you a PM asking you to contact them via email off forum.

These are all scammer tactics and your Spidey Scammer Senses (SSS) should be screaming inside your head that it totally reeks of scam.

I got a PM earlier today from a brand new member, '0' posts and an invitation to contact him/her off-form at email address "tincann1965@outlook.com" I did a Google search for this email address but did not come up with any results. I just replied to the Pm with the following:

"No thanks, new member, 0 posts"

Re: Beware offers from new members to sell you parts

He/she is a scammer for sure. This party also setup a new profile on a Porsche forum and the only posts they have are invitations for a party that posted a 'wanted' ad to contact him off forum...and he just happens to have wheels and an aluminum trailer and a phone mount for ultra rare Porsche cars. This is the same scam approach that I caught last year and warned a few members about that were going to send this joker money for parts he didn't have. On that occurrence the scammer had previously 'sold' an engine to a US soldier and then had the balls to come back and ask for more $$ claiming that 'his brother' wouldn't let him sell it that cheap. The phone number given was a pre-paid phone, the mailing address was a PO Box, and as it turned out the IP address on the email was actually in Africa. So the scammer, was doing everything he was doing from Africa and had an accomplice here in the US picking up the checks and money orders at the PO box.

Don't be fooled by new members claiming to have parts you need and that have 0 posts or only post in response to parts wanted ads.

I think our admins should close/ban this account/user. He is almost for sure a scammer. "tincan90"

Re: Beware offers from new members to sell you parts

actually it would already be done if there were a link to him in this thread as the quicker a scamer is removed the less chance for them to cause issues
