Default Anyone bought from johnpollard594?

He responded to my WTB post and directed me to another guy's email via the following message:

"...Walter Kings he mentioned he had for sale hit him up at wkings2251@gmail.com..."

I emailed that guy who sent me pics and a PayPal address for his "secretary." So then I checked johnpollard594's profile and he has 0 posts and created his account this year.

Seems sketch all around so thought I'd put it out there in case others are dealing with him, and if someone can vouch he's legit that would be good to hear as well, but I'm very skeptical.

This seems like an obvious scam, and these scammers are getting more popular on this website. Ask if he would be willing to complete the transaction through eBay. Also NEVER send paypal funds as a “gift” or to “family” if you do there will be 0 chance of ever getting your money back. PayPal’s tax system on goods and services allows insurance and ability to dispute if something goes wrong. If they have 0 post count, or it’s a low number, it’s most likely a scam. Both of those names seem obvious and I have no doubt it’s a scam. Who needs to add that many numbers at the end of their email? And who the hell uses a secretary for selling a sun visor? LOL

Edit: who the hell knows their “friend” is selling a sun visor? Lol. It’s probably a guy from a different country who does this all day, and gets all the dumb people. And they make a full time job out of it ****ing pathetic..

If the username ends with more than two numbers definitely a scam.

Don't do it, it's exactly how I got scammed for e30 parts on an e30 forum.

Thanks for the responses guys. I had figured it was a scam and never responded. I thought I had googled his name and didn't find anything but clearly I'm not proficient at the google lol.

I also couldn't remember the page to report scammers, but a quick search of his name and there it is, perfect!

I do have to say the quality and number of pics he had of the exact part I was looking for was very impressive, they get better every day

This user also sent me a similar message on the WTB section. His message reads: “The last time I purchased headlights from Paul Peterson he mentioned he had for sale hit him up at paulpeterson633@gmail.com you can thank me later”. Definitely a scammer.
