In this day and age like in history, back to the beginning of time scammers, con-artists, snake oil salesman, and what we are dealing with is people bypassing using Paypal protection systems. No one on this site should exchange money unless and ONLY through Paypal or equal style company. Please, I beg of you if you receive a PM in conversations with suggestive 3rd party material please forward it to a moderator or report. If you receive a PM with any of the following things in common signs of a scammer.

Here are common signs of a scammer :

1) They have 1 post or a few posts, only in the WTB section, not on the rest of the forum.

2) They are using a weird sounding email address typically two names

3) They suggest a thrid party sale from or to a guy that always has good deals

4) They will not do paypal unless it is "friends and family" payment

5) They give too much information once they start messaging you

6) They want to rush the deal, sending multiple messages with a agenda

7) They send pics from common google searches ex. PRB fuel pump image - they send a photo from that scroll page


A good practice is to ask for pictures of the part. Once they send them ask for them to send the pictures again but with a member name on a card with a date. Also ask questions that a normal Honda head should know, see what kind of mess they come up with.

We have protection measures set in place, we all just have to use them. Please report to a moderator so they can deal with the issue or look into it. If you have good ideas, please share them.
