BEWARE OF SCAMMER
#1301184 - 08/15/06 11:20 PM

The scammer's ZIP code is 60151 (Maple Park, IL). The scammer might have a last name Rapier, Ebay name PNBSVT and an e-mail address PZSVT39@aol.com. He never paid for my HU (I put my ad in the Classifieds re the Ebay auction), kept lying and samming under different pretenses.

BEWARE!!!!!!

I dunno, Matt. I've gotten a few rearry weird emails like that; that're hard to understand; but they were legit. Send 'em someone else's info and see what happens.

Definit scam. Anytime they use the word "advert" it's a clear sign of a scam.

Rule of Thumb

If the English is bad and the spelling is messed up than it is probably a scammer. If you tell him something and he completely ignores it he is probably a scammer. I posted a thread last month about this.

Dan

BTW i got the same email except it was David COle.

I received the same type of letter and just ignored it.
It is a slimey British scammer.
They are the only ones that use a word like 'Advert"

Absolute rip off.

Don't anyone give any real information or they will give you a check that bounces or leave yourself open for some other illegal actions.
