Default Beware of 1050 Injectors for sale

I had some guy request I send a picture of my ID 1050s on a piece of paper with his phone number on it. As soon as I sent them, he backed out. I soon realized he now has some nice injectors on a piece of paper with his phone number and this would make scamming people very easy.

Here is the picture with his phone number - he also has several detailed pictures of the injectors.

If you see them, he does not have them and you are being scammed.

Thanks, but, It won't allow me to post anything there. I also tried to post there with no success about the guy who sold me a bad FP Black last month.

I saw your ads about the FP black. Damn dude, sorry about your luck.
If it wasn't for bad luck, you wouldn't have any luck at all.

Now this. I wish I could help you out some how.

I don't know if he intends to scam people with that picture. I think he's just flaky.

I texted the number and got a response about used blues.

Never mind, sounds like he and you had some miscommunication.

Who knows with people these days. I can't confirm anything, and, his story still doesn't match up.

The only thing I could confirm was that his name was actually who he said it was as I tried to contact him through his facebook page the minute I thought he was trying to scam products with pics.

You can see he still isn't being completely honest about what happened in the end, and I still don't know for 100% if he is telling the truth or not.

His name is Zach Sober - and this is the last text I got from him. He claims he did not receive any pictures when I sent them, but all of a sudden they showed up the next day. I've been selling parts off this number for a month and not once had an issue with pictures. People would have to make their own decision to buy or not buy from him. I wouldn't have trusted him before, and after seeing what he just text you I wouldn't trust him now.

Could have been a problem with the phone carriers. I've had it where I send pics and sometime they don't receive them or get a late delivery.
