There `s absolutely no restrictions on this forum like minimum post count so it`s a playground for scammers. sadly

recently I posted a few "want to buy" posts for my 930 project, I was shocked when my inbox filled with scammers!, I had to spend a lot of time to filter out the genuine sellers from the scammers. I think something needed to be done to at least limit their activities here.

I don't seem to have a problem with scammers. I'm a 50 + years exotic dealer so probably think I've have heard BS before. Same with when I drive a 930 with my dealer plate.

I usually look up a local Porsche shop near the seller and ask them if they will take a look at the parts for me. Scammers lose my number pretty quick after that.

Great idea. Why didn't I think of that.
