Default Scam alert

I recently received a PM from obsidianSS trying to sell me an LS6 intake. The user has 0 posts so I am very leery about buying any parts from him. Any input?

Then don't buy it from him if you feel uneasy about it.

Wise words. Take this advice.


EDIT: I see that obsidianSS is a Restricted user, so you must have received that PM before his status change.

Alright. I did not know if you guys needed the heads up so that you could ban him or something.

Good call, but honestly when I get PM's from someone wanting to buy/sell anything with me and I see that they have been a user for less then 6 months and less then 50 posts I simple don't do it on the principle that they are not following the site rules. And IMO dealing with people who can actually post in the classifieds will drastically reduce my chances of getting scammed although nothing is 100% guaranteed.
