Exclamation repozinlasterp@gmail.com 'scrapmetal' aka Fred Wilson

Just a heads up. This scammer 'scrapmetal' answered my Fauna ad about three hours ago. The usual game to get personal info, be careful.

Thank you for posting your text too Corbin.

As a point of reference for all, screenshots are really good. Typing the important key information out is one step better . Search engines read typed "text" versus image files. By typing out, "the scammer's number was 727-308-1398", now others can cross reference it better. Helpful heads up.

Thank you all for contributing to the Board of Inquiry and helping look out for one another.

Its a weird form of spam...

First email I thought it was an interested customer... second email I still thought it was serious until I read theyll send me a cashiers check or MO with an additional $40 for the inconvience, and let me know when someones coming to pick it up. I emailed back and said their email looked like spam and I only accept paypal and they didnt email back.
They then sent an email from a different ad and I replied with "paypal only" and they never responded.

Funny how they think it will still work
