Posted a WTB scope thread. Get a kindly contact me on my mail from bookmaster899. Only a member for 1 month no trades. Says he has exactly what I am looking for for sale. But it’s nowhere on here. Suspicious how do u know if it’s a scam if they have no history and sentence English is also not perfect. Easy enough to read what I’m looking for. Thanks for any thoughts

It's a scam. Ask him to private message you a picture of the item with his username and the date wrote on a piece of paper in the photo beside of the item. If they want you to pay in PayPal family and friends only, it probably a scam. If he can't contact you via private message here on LRH, it's probably a scam. If he hasn't had some content on here with some long-range educated questions or statements, then he's probably on here just to scam. Don't chance it.

Who the heck in America uses "kindly" as an intro to any sentence 😂. Sounds like the guy hasn't known how to speak English for very long.

Yep nothing but goofy comments like the pic I sent. “congrats on your catch” It’s a bull elk not a bass. Also somehow where he responded to my thread it doesn’t show up anywhere. I’m backing out of this thanks to you guys have a great weekend

"I" do. Kindly, please, thank, etc., are magic words esp. when dealing with commanders (my primary customers for the last 34 years). I was raised with these magic words.

Usually on these forum people PM first and then if everything seems fine exchange phone numbers. I've been seeing a lot of cherry items for extremely low prices and people ask for a email. Kindly take this with a grain of salt. ;)

Agreed! I rely heavily on members' positive feedback/trade history.
