I would never respond to an email from someone responding to a wanted post on here... a PM, sure...as long as they have an itrader rating and seem to contribute regularly.

You're lucky you were smart enough not to send him said money.

Indeed!! A friend of mine got scammed out of a $30,000 car, And the funny thing is The bank cleared the check. Two months later They came back to him and said the check was bad!! These guys are getting so good that they're sending watermarks, And laser etched Checks that even confuse the banks!! The only way I do business now Is through PayPal. And don't before Fooled by sending the money through PayPal as a gift, Then it's not insured!!
It makes me sick when people try to scam On honest people That are just trying to Pursue a hobby that they love!!

Be well
Jim.

I got a respond to a wanted ad I had posted up from someone telling me they had the part and to email them at: randdshelley938@gmail.com. I sent them an email... It felt a little strange (they were brand new and no posts...) so I google'd the email address and the one result was to a supra forum post where someone on there was almost scammed by him/her. They never did email me back... I did report them to the forum admin and they were immediately banned...

just be smart people... if it seems fishy, it probably is.... do some investigative work (i.e. google their email, like I did. ask them for pictures of the item with their username on a piece of paper in the picture... check there profile and see if they filled it out.... <- I did this after I figured out a scam and it would have been a HUGE DEAD giveaway when it read "Transmission Type: [ v6 ]" bahahahahaha

I work in banking so I have plenty of firsthand experience with this. It's not so much that the banks are confused because honestly, they're not looking at every check that comes through. Usually what happens in cases like these is the checks will be stolen or forged from a large business account. The business doesn't notice the fraudulent check come through until 30-60 days have passed, when they do their accounting. Some of these businesses have balances in the $500K - $1 million range so a check for $30K easily slips through the cracks.

I hear what you're saying, But honestly they're aware of all the scammers out there, And they can do a better job of policing them!
In my opinion, If they clear a check, It should be on then if it comes back fraudulent. The safest way to do transactions When you don't know the individual Is PayPal Or cash.

Thanks
Jim
