BEWARE SCAMMERS!!!!!

Postby Bartman » Thu Aug 18, 2011 7:00 pm

I just got a couple of PM's from someone claiming to be in the united kingdon, responding to a couple of wanted ads I've placed on this forum.

No right thinking person would think that I would bother to import a set of wheel nuts, and a couple of brake pins from the UK. FFS!
I know none of you are that dumb either, but just so you know we're not imune to scammers here either.
They don't call me the man with the rubber arm for nothing you know.............
