    It has been brought to our attention that the user "klingel" is stating that they are in the US (Indiana), when their IPs are clearly showing that they are not. We would like to warn everyone against doing business with this user, as they are asking for money transfers.

    Hopefully no one was caught by this. Please let this serve as a reminder to ALWAYS double and triple check someone new you are considering to do business with. If it sounds "fishy" and "too good to be true", 9 out of 10 times it most likely is, unfortunately. Please be careful.

    The user has been permanently banned from this site and all posts/ads have been removed.

    A HUGE thanks to the person that brought this to our attention. You know who you are. ;)

    Agreed. Was going to do business but all seems too fishy. Wouldn't answer my question as I asked. Just worried about the $$$

    They are absolutely a scam. They're email is traces to Latvia. When I called her on it, she got, er, aggressive. If anyone needs comic relief, email me and I'll forward you the email chain.

    Admin Note

    This user just posted some ads under a new user name that they registered with: "inverts1". We have banned the account and deleted their ads.

    I'm not saying this person is not a scammer (0 posts), but I would like to point out that some people do use proxy servers and Tor even when surfing normal type sites. An IP address showing anywhere in the US, Europe, or Asia could be someone anywhere on the planet using a proxy server.

    Then it would make more sense for them to make a new account to explain their situation to an admin rather then make a new account to post more for sales.
