I have a WTB post up on here looking for a rear window for my premium soft top. User Robert65 sent me a PM telling me to email [Scam Warning - Please Report to Site Administrators] because he has a tinted rear window for sale. So, I emailed Matthew and got a response with a photo of soft top windows and a price of $200. When I told him I only send Paypal via Goods and Services, he sent me a link to a fake Paypal account (paypal.me) and said he only accepts Paypal as Gifts. RED FLAG SCAM ALERT! What an idiot. Do people actually fall for this shit? A quick google of his email address yields lots of scam results. Please consider this my PSA.

Thank you for posting this PSA / warning. That user has already been banned.

Going forward, if anyone should receive any private messages with this general patttern (unsolicited PM asking you to email a random unknown email address), please report it to us using the report function in the PM. Thank you.

New scammer: Redyred547

I contacted the email and they insisted on moneygram.

I reported the pm as advised. Just making this public so the scammer doesnt get anyone.

Thanks
