Scam Alert!!


This has been posted on Mud Club and I'm not sure if anyone has posted it here yet but thought I would anyway.

There seems to be a scammer going around various vehicle forums advertising that he has a garage full of spares for what ever make of vehicle forum he is posting on.

He never lists the parts he has, but everything the members ask for he seems to have, in very good condition and at really low prices.
He asks to be pay through Paypal as he is wanting to but parts for his V8 Landy off Ebay.

So members are paying for the parts and then, nothing, no parts, no emails, no contact. Gone!

He has done the same thing on about 6 different forums so far and the Police have been informed.

One of the Nick's he has used is LandyLoon, THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE SLROC MEMBER OF THE SAME NAME!!

Just be aware if you see something similar.

Here's links to some of the other forums that have been hit:




Any chance you could 'Sticky' this for a couple of days Bernie?
I know some on here will visit other forums and it's just to make sure as few people as possible fall victim to this. ;)
This guy has taken over a £1000 from 1 of those forums alone!!!!
Some of the members were asking why parts were so cheap and then sending the money????
It looks like the police have opened a case against him now though.
Thanks i've seen this post somewhere else the wording/writing gives it away

I think he's doing it among other hobbies as again the way he writes gives his MO away, always a shed full of stuff too much to mention such as inherited articles etc all must go quick
Thanks! But as always, if a deal is looking to good to be true, it propably is. Yesterday I got a mail from Mrs. Lumumba in Africa, offering me 25% of her late hubbys hidden fortune (25 Million USD ) if I helped her with a bank account. Shure thing...
Have a look at www.419eater.com.

If you understand this email scam as mentioned above, then you will appreciate what these guys are doing. Have a good read and check out the photos. Basically they get these scam guys to pose for silly photos!
