I got one from stephen91 stating his friend has a part I was looking for and gave me his email address. [email protected]
After exchanging a couple emails with them I could tell something was not right. The pictures of the part they sent me were the first ones that came up when googled. They were from a business in Florida and this person said they were in Texas. So I asked them to call me. Someone actually did call me, and I could tell it was a scam.

I banned stephens91, 2/10, and he joined 2/9 because he screwed another member. He may have joined under another email or name previously. Stephens91 never posted on the site, although he signed up as a member. There are scammers everywhere and I would be hesitant to purchase something if a member has no history or posts. Get their name and address and google it determine if they are real or a scammer.

Also if you put your email or phone # on an ad, anyone can contact you directly.

Love to see this person get their just due.

I received a response form Stephen91 about a speedo reducer that i had posted on this site. He asked me to send a payment to; [email protected]. Asked him for a picture of it and he sent me a known file picture of the reducer. That’s when I realize it was a hoax. This happen about two weeks ago.

I had a wanted ad on Team Chevelle and someone with '0' posts and joined that very day sent me a message telling me his buddy had what I was looking for. I never responded. Some people were getting scammed over on Team Chevelle also. Sorry to hear you got screwed.

Google that phone number and you will see that he's scamming other boards as well.

Here is one of the emails he used [email protected] and said his name was Scott Elsdone. He got me for $150. He knows car parts quite well but writes a little like he is from South Africa. The weird thing is, once he got my money he continued to email me several more times. Usually a scammer will move on the minute he gets your money. After looking at my PayPal history it stated it was a non US transaction. It would be nice if PP would tell you that BEFORE you hit the send button.
