BEWARE of WTB SCAM response

Recommended Posts

I posted that I was looking for an Aquarius MODEM.

 

Just got a very suspect response to my add an hour ago and I posted this in the bad trader sub

 

BEWARE 

 

Sammy02  sent me a PM regarding a modem I was looking to buy.  Said he knew a guy who had one for sale and told me to text him for info.  The seller refused to give me his AA handle and insisted I send PAYPAL friends and family . (Huge red flag).  
 

Here is the message I got from Sammy02

     I purchased some items from lucky932 some days ago and aquarius computer modem is among the items he showed me that he wanted to part out with. Maybe you should text him to know if it is still available.. Here's his number 608-XXX-XXXX

 

I checked Sammy02 's profile and he just created it and has ZERO posts

I've banned the user and warned the 30+ users he sent a PM to that this is a scam.

Oh sheesh. Yeah I got I've of these too! Mine was about an Aquarius Mini Expander.

 

Also, now I know who Albert is 😊

Yeah, I should have been more explicit and stated that I'm the forum admin, but I was sending those messages out as fast as I could.  :)

THAT SOB just texted me back and said he did not get my PAYPAL payment.  He wants me to check that I got his email address correct.

Hope he does not get a ton of SPAM to that email 

 

I am texting him right now (608) 561-7362

We are talking about how awesome it will be for me to have a Modem for my Aquarius.  He seems very happy to sell it too me but is somewhat concerned that my PAYPAL transaction did not show up yet.  I told him it is probably delayed because iof the snow.  He does claim to live in Wisconsin

Feel free to text him if you are looking to buy something. He seems to have everything.

 

Hopefully he does not get too many texts tonight .
