    Beware of a guy from San Francisco Bay Area using HAMB to scam people. If you’re selling something and he calls you hang up ASAP!
     
  2. Did you let the mods and Ryan know?

    There is no member Danny Nelson.

    Does he have a HAMB name ?
    How many posts does he have?
    Recently just signed up with no posts ?


    For those reading this.....

    Use common sense .
    No HAMB history ..... don’t waste your time.

    Wants a Money Order or a Walmart transfer payment ?
    OR any type of money transfer.
    Don’t waste your time.

    Wants Western Union money order ?
    Don’t waste your time.

    PayPal Account went dormant ?
    Don’t waste your time.

    Sick dog, sick mother, sick mother in law ?
    Don’t waste your time .

    Send money to his wife’s account ?
    Don’t waste your time ?

    In other words DON’T FALL FOR THE BS.

    You are at your own risk with any deal on the HAMB.

    He said a friend of his saw it on hamb and gave him my number.
     
  8. So, just how exactly was he scamming? If he was the buyer, that limits what he can do...

    So RiKi - Let’s clarify things here.
    Did you post a wanted ad or did you post something for sale?

    Never mind I see you just posted a wanted ad
    for 51 to 53 Buick radiators on Sunday.

    Don’t post your phone number…
    That opens up to exactly what’s happening.
    You are a prime target for parts wanted ads. A friend of a friend of a friend told me that you’re looking for 53 Buick radiators. I have just what you want. Send me a Western Union payment or a Walmart transfer and I’ll send you the radiator including freight right away.
    Sound familiar?

    Don’t post your phone number on your wanted ads
    Just some advice.

    My wife sent an Instagram money transfer and the radiator never showed up at the agreed upon bus station. Now his cell is “disconnected”

    Parts wanted ads are a bullseye for scammers .

    In this case, the guy who contacted RiKi said a “friend” saw it on the HAMB and gave him RiKi’s number.....

    What friend ?
    What’s the friends HAMB name ?
    How many posts does the friend ( HAMB Member ) have ?

    Ask a 1000 questions .....

    Scammers menu ....
    I have the exact part you are looking for .
    Send me money and I’ll ship it.
    Send me a Western Union money order or send a Walmart Money Transfer .,,,
    Instagram money transfers....
    Any money transfers .....
    My Paypal Account is dormant .....
    Send money to my wife’s account .....
    Yadda yadda yadda .


    Oldest trick for scammers .......

    Don’t do it under any circumstances !

    I’ve done a lot of money transfers for cars or parts sold but this was the first scam. Last time I’ll do that. His name is Danny Nelson fromSan Francisco. He must have access to this website

    His name is probably not Danny Nelson and he / she is probably not from San Francisco.

    Just want to put it out there. My name is Daniel Nelson, and I live in the SF Bay area. This was not me, or anyone I know.

    I don't care how you get your items, but you never do any sort of money transfer with a stranger (or hell even someone you know) without a verified service such as Paypal. Scammers always be scammin'

    Unfortunately - he probably has several name and photo ID's that he uses.
    Daniel Nelson being one of many.
    Cell phone disconnected is common.

    I'm sorry this happened to you RiKi.

    I got one of these right after I registered, I had mentioned a PC that was holding my photos hostage (hard drive crashed), haven't seen the guy on here since I said "F off".

    who uses Instagram to pay for stuff?, I guess another one goes on the list of "not to do".
    Don't use facebook money either, really??
