    i know that i am posting this in a questionable forum. but i am looking for some traditional help from a Lynchburg, Virginia resident.
    Please Read

    i live in canada and posted in the hamb wanted section that i am looking for some garnish mouldings. i received an email from an apparent hamb member with the name WRAYT33 that he has my parts that i need. i've run some searches and cant find any info on this member. i ask him for pics and he says he doesn't have enough bandwith. i'm looking at sending him money through western union as he says his paypal is dormant. i ask him to give me a call, he says he is hearing impaired. we have emailed each other approx 15 times and i don't feel right just sending money to someone i don't know and isn't providing me with any proof of the parts. i have his address. maybe someone could help me out that lives in the area. i have his address and don't have problem sending money to a hamb member that i can actually view. i would even send you a few extra dollars to help me. from one hamb member to another. send me a pm if you can help me out.
    greatly appreciated

    Why would you even consider buying from him? Report him to a mod.

    Hell, I hear tornado sirens going off with megawatt search lights.

    He's presenting classic scammers indicators. Why do people even question this?

    How many signs and signals need to go off, before people smell a scam? 50? 100? :confused:
