    We’re getting more and more “people” sign up, post hello on a couple of threads, then start PMing people about parts for sale.
    These are scams.
    You have been warned.

    You lot make me laugh :):)

    The point baysearcher makes is still very valid. There are people signed up here with dormant accounts who simply make a token post to appear genuine when they see a wanted ad and then PM the poster offering goods that they never receive. They usually have a username with numbers such as mike123.

    As BS says ‘ be aware’!

    Tbf, poptop2 joined a spammer and his first post was hello.
