Be Careful Guys....

So heres the story of people desperate to scam and make money.I put a wtb add here for a forester dsm intake manifold.Im thinking ive never had a problem with anyone on here and people are honest for the most part.Im looking for something very specific and old(FRH Intake).About a week after the post i get an email from a guy that says he has a forester intake.Im like cool send me a pic,price and where are you located.He sends me pic and its for a subaru forester and price is 220gbp whatever that is.never tells me where hes from.I reply that maybe i wasnt too clear on what i was looking for.I told him i was looking for a forester racing heads 4g63 intake.He then replies with a picture of a frh manifold.I found this very weird and google frh manifolds and low and behold i found a fs add from 2005 from tampa racing forum and it was the same picture he sent me.I told him to send me another pic with a piece of paper with my email on it and he never responded.Im like shit people go as far as trolling forums looking at wtb adds smh what has this world come to.

What has this world come to? Unfortunately, it's come to a lot of mental midgets who can't put 2 and 2 together like you did. Stuff like this wouldn't so common if there weren't so many greedy mouth-breathers out there. One born every minute.

Just another reason why legit gearheads are a breed apart.

Re: Be Careful Guys....

I've gotten those emails too after making a WTB thread, there was a thread in AG not too long ago about that.

Re: Be Careful Guys....

I am going to admit, if you post an add looking for a "Forester Intake", I'm thinking Subaru. Hence my reply to your post. Ignoring the part about the attempted scam and all, Forester=Subaru in my book.

Re: Be Careful Guys....

If you want to make a difference you need to share some information with us so that we can fight back. This isn't a headless corporate site. This is member run and member supported. But you might notice that the staff doesn't post WTB so we won't see this.

Post up some emails, screen names, etc.

fwiw gbp should have been the red flag... Unless I'm mistaken that stands for Great britan pound (or similar)... In other words foreign currency...

I've removed the WTB section from public (non member) display.

Re: Be Careful Guys....

And that led you to believe that they don't have accounts?
