More WTB Scam

Another guy lurking around the WTB posts:



Emailed him not expecting much and got this:



Things smelled fishy so gave him a fake address and asked for pics:



More fish :/ searched google images for a 3.2 harness and lo and behold the exact same harness is for sale... in the UK.



Asked for his PayPal:



Iím sure the email and PayPal details change pretty frequently, but they seem to copy and paste the same message.

Paypal gift is as secure as western union for getting your money back unless YOU KNOW THE PERSON AS A FRIEND OR FAMILY. Dont ever send this way or you risk losing your money. Pay the 2.9% plus 3.99 fee then your safe 99% of the time. GLWSearch. Thanks Rob

These same guys are running the same scam in response to my WTB listing. The paypal gift card request seems to be a favorite of scammers.

Hello Robert,

Thanks for writing, apologies for the delay in response. I have for sale a pair of black '68 Door Panels in excellent condition. In very good shape. Willing to let go for some extra cash. It came off my '68 911.
I am asking a $130 (price shipped) .I am in California and will ship via UPS. The asking price includes shipping and will take payment via PayPal gift payment .
What's your complete shipping address? Let me know if we have a deal and I will provide my PayPal.

Thanks,
Michael.

Had to make sure it wasnít that low grade aluminum crap they used in 83





I also hear porsche specialty tools are expensive and hard to come by :/





And youíve got to be careful who you buy from on EBay, scammers everywhere!





I also tried to scoop up those door panels, but I guess he didnít want to pass around to many good deals :/



He/She/They are certainly persistent, Iíll give them that!

Yeah, the guy is a total scam bag and got me for $130. I was too trusting, have already taken my lashes, and will never EVER do the 'PayPal Gift' thing for someone I don't know. I hope he develops terminal paranoia, ending in meeting up with the very wrong person.

I do a lot of PP gift but only to the people I know or long time posters. A lot of times I'll add in a couple dollars to cover the sellers PP fee if they are already giving me a good deal. 99.9% of the people on this site are super. You just have to think for a moment before someone offers you that irresistible deal.
