SCAMMER ALERT - Using my profile
 
Hey guys...had a member contact me stating they received a message from me asking if they wanted to purchase a sub. This member posted in the Want to Buy section and a scammer proactively reached out to them using my profile. I did not make that outreach. I have items for sale but not a sub.

I do not proactively reach out so if you get a message from STL-16613 do not buy anything from them. If you are interested in any of the pieces I have for sale i have my cell attached - 314-565-1689 to my ad. The scammer is using email stl16613@gmail.com.

Can anyone provide guidance on next steps as i have notified the facilitator of TRF.

Thanks for any help.

Another FYI...the same thing happened to me a month ago. I posted in the Want to buy section and had a member proactively reach out stating they had the watch i was looking for. I checked their references...they were good...wired the money and got nothing. Scammed!

Moral of the story...I would not recommend using the Want to buy section unless you do alot of homework!!.

That’s prob why they’re scamming using your profile.

Too much info in an open forum. Get a DM first then qualify and share info.
