Member “bricksclaude” sent me a PM on Tuesday "I recommend you get in touch with McShane Clancy on mcshaneclancy@outlook.com. He has a M38A1 Floor Pans for sale in mint condition…”

I was quoted $255 shipped. Then when I asked for a photo, I did a reverse image search and found it on the e-Willy’s page from an ad from four years ago.

I just got word of the scammer. Beware folks! He is recommending "Clancy McShane" as a go to for parts you might be in search of. McShane is using stolen photos of parts.

I've had 5 different guys try to scam me on my post for an M38 dataplate. It always starts with, "are you still looking, where are you located and what's your offer?" It's usually poor English and mixed lower case and capitals. The photo of the part they send is usually the first thing that comes up on Google images. Some of the names used are Fells, Alexandra Ching, Michaelthegreatman35, and WillsonSmith543 who also claims to be wills2308 on the forum. I strung wills along for 40 emails before I got bored. Along the way he gave me a postal address that turned out to be a private po box in North Dakota.

Kyle, thanks for the heads up email. flash0679259@gmail.com is one email being used by this particular scammer under the wills2308 username. He is now gone and that email banned.

I can't repeat this enough you G men, do not do business with anyone ew to the forum and if you are contacted by anyone off site please report it immediately!

I put a listing in the hand cart section looking for a drawbar and handle for an M3A4 hand cart.

Contacted by a member "vcatr" here via private message. Told me a Josh Gretzky had a drawbar and handle for sale and to contact him with the provided email.

I do. Josh gets back to me via email. Says he has handle and drawbar. $100 shipped and to pay via Apple pay card via paypal, I say I can do paypal. He emails back and says needs to be via Apple pay card.

I smell a rat. Parts seem cheap and the guy that pm'd me here on the G503 has no posts, however he joined in 2016. Odd.

Anyway, anyone heard of this guy? Seems if he has parts for M3A4 hand carts he'd be known here. Searched here and on web. Zero intel on him or his email which is: jtxpolt@outlook.com Seems like an odd email as well.

Anyway, I asked for some photos of the parts in the meantime.

Thanks,
Zeph

I put a wanted add up for the the F srcript battery clamp and the F script fuel tank bolts and had a chap called Rolf contact me via email stating he had the clamp, he sent me a picture of two battery cable terminals, I told him that was not what I was after. I sent him a picture of the battery clamp and he said he had one so I asked for a picture. Meanwhile I asked him if he was on the G503 and he said yes so I asked him for his G503 ID and he asked me why did I want that. I told him it was because he sent me an email and did not answer my post on the G. Needless to say he has dissappeared.
His email is rolfmax012@gmail.com if anyone else has had the same experience.
May I make a suggestion in that the email link is removed from the contact page and only the personnal message link can be used, at least this way only a G member can contact a G member.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. rolfmax012@gmail.com is not associated with a member here. I suspect he or an associate IS a member here and they work in concert to scam people.

Again, be careful dealing with someone you don't know and keep reporting them!

That is a thought however a lot of our members rely solely on email contact. I will discuss that idea with Ron and Ken.

With the help of a diligent member another scammer has been revealed!

His g503 member name is "vcatr" and he sent a PM, not sure how with no posts but he offered help finding a part needed and named "Josh" at email address jtxpolt@outlook.com.

Be careful guys!

Vcatr (email markanker367@gmail.com) has been banned as well as his email address.

Yep. That is what had my suspicions raised. A member since 2016 with no posts on here? Really seemed odd. If I don't know who it is, I like to see if I can find legit details on them. Couldn't find any on this guy either on the G503, or on the web.

Most likely a scammer from South Africa.
Insert the email shown here above in a Google search box.
This scammer is looking for requests published in various forum.
Liek in that German forum.

https://www.motor-talk.de/marktplatz/su ... 30835.html

He proposes to find and deliver the requested part.
