    Beware of the scammers

    Heads up about the dishonest people on here trying to rip people off with a scam where they pm you to contact buddy who has parts and pull generic pics off web. Only one shot of part and press for the sale.Just donít be naive to the to good to be true deals where the guy has a new and used one.Ask questions that someone selling the part would know the answer too.Most legit people donít mind and will talk with you on the phone as well.
    With that being said I want to give credit and thanks to the many folks on here who opened their stash up and sold me parts to finish projects as well as invaluable advice from their experiences and mistakes.
    Thereís only a few bad apples in the bunch just have an open mind to it and use good judgment when buying.

    If they tell you to contact their buddy and give a Gmail address you can pretty much guarantee its a scam... and they don't accept private messages... made me mad cuz I wanted to mess with one..

    This guy was dumb as a rock. I kept sending him pictures of what
    I wanted and he sent me pictures of intake manifolds and regular
    updraft exh manifolds.

    He would text me between in the middle of the night.

    Later he wanted an additional credit card payment for all his hard work.

    Re: Beware of the scammers

    Looks like this is a growing problem the administrators need to address by limiting the ability of new accounts to private message other users, Ive had two private messages on the same parts wanted from spammers that joined the site just days before.
