Default Beware. Scammer in our midst.

I advertised looking for an A coupe body and got a message from a 0 post member to email someone which I did. Long story short it was a scam as was offered bodys that were too cheap and having done a reverse image search the pics sent to me were from other websites. I contacted the admins a couple days ago but didnt hear back so thought I best post here too. Be careful and do your due diligence before sending cash.

Good work.
A reverse search on the image is an excellent defense against these @#$ holes.

Pete, do you want the body shipped to you in Japan? Seems that would be a bit costly, but anyway glad to hear about the reverse search. Thanks fo that.
