    Has anyone been receiving messages from no post guests telling you that someone from another state has the item you wanted and leaves their email address only. Seems fishy. The one time I reached out to one of these recommended persons they wanted payment thru pay pal friends and family, which we all know you can't get refunded for a scam.

    Yes, many have been getting them. If you get such a PM, please report it so that we can nuke the account from orbit.

    Yeah man, that scam is nothing new but some people still fall for it. It's a shame you can't wire them dog shit in a box.

    I concur with Streaker.

    Please report those PM's. They are scams meant to get your stuff through fraudulent means.

    I try to weed out those individuals when they register at PAFOA, but sometimes you just cant tell. There are certain "trademark" things that show, sometimes not.

    If the mods beat me, they will ban the user. I then followup and ban their IP address if it isn't from a legit Internet Service Provider. Banning ISP IP's is fruitless and waste of time, IP's can be changed in a matter of a few seconds from ISP's just by power cycling the modem.

    Now proxies and fly-by-night VPN's, I ban the entire assigned block issued. I do try to leave open legit and subscription VPN services if I can identify the IP as such - but sometimes they aren't labeled as a legit company in the DNS registries and such.

    I've gotten quite a few. They're easy to spot: "Contact John in Tennessee he has *insert exact WTB title you posted*".
