  9. Well done!
    So...he didn’t get a PM, just an email that was similar to the Hamb conversation alerts. They are tricky SOBs.

    Made 10 posts and started working the wanted section.

    Guys need to report anything suspicious.

    In this case - you guys were on top of it.
     
  15. A lot of FNGs have been making multiple one and two word posts in a single day lately ('Sweet!' 'Looks great' etc.) Seems to be a spike in people doing 'intros' too.

    i have 1 '30 coupe door, not sure which side ? but i know it is rough...
    don't think it is worth shipping west.... pic if brave...
    $hipping has pooched the parts selling trade...
    .
    i too was scammed by a jerk for a $296 shipped tulip panel...
    while i am hanging on waiting for it he tells me his daughter is dying and the hospital needs $200 to save her life... wanted me to give it to him.... i told him i would help the same day my panel arrived...
    we all know about any hospital would eat the $200 to save her...
    .
    so first go the scammer's profile page note the # of posts...
    if you know he is bad and have the skills, fry his computer / phone...

    once he is banned his posts disappear
     
  20. I don’t think so. At least not the ones I’ve looked at. Pulled a few up in the past that I wondered what had happened to them.
    Look them up in a member search and it shows everything. Try to go to their profile and you get an error.

    when a spammer is a relatively new member, there is a "spam " button that the mods hit. It eliminates all of their previous content and bans them all at once. when a member is banned for another reason, their previous posts are left intact
