  1. Scanning through random posts on the Classified Wire, I found where folks have posted their PayPal info, pictures of shipping labels with names and addresses, and posts with your names, phone numbers, and email addresses. Please remember that this is a public forum and scammers can read it without becoming Wire Members, and sometimes scammers become Wire Members, too. For private information, use Private Messaging! BTT
  2. Hit "report" on that post so I can find it, and I'll make it invisible.
  3. Since you are posting here, it appears as if your efforts have already been successful. Welcome to the fire. Eli
  4. This would not eliminate the problem. These scammers are not guests nor members. They are harvesting emails and phone numbers in order to text and divert the payment. Keeping private information private would eliminate the problem. We've posted this in multiple places, but either no one reads it or it gets ignored.
  5. These are not members or even guests who are pulling this scam. Your e-mail addresses are hidden by default. Those who have added email addresses and phone numbers to your PUBLIC profile are doing this to yourselves. Anybody at all can read the forum without joining, they can read the posts, and then attempt to hijack your payment. If you have private information, don't make it public. You're not understanding what the problem is. Read the above post.
  6. My old truck is my daily driver. No onboard computers. The clock on the radio doesn't automatically change to daylight savings time, and I don't care. So half the year it's an hour behind, the other half it be jus' fine.
  7. Just happened again. Someone from NJ tried to hijack a payment due a Texas pard, and send the check to someone else in Tennessee. Make sure your email and phone numbers are not in your public profile.
  8. Empty brass ships the same as a block of wood. Get a box, use the USPS website "click & ship". Print the label, tape it to the box, have the post office pick it up. Done.
  9. Be careful, someone posing as Moose tried to hijack a member's payment. Your email addresses are hidden by default. If you have added your private information to your public profile, you are vulnerable to scammers getting into the middle of the transaction.
  10. It's still happening!! I wish we could get the word out to everyone. But, few people read these pinned posts.
  11. By default, email addresses are hidden. But, then you added it to your public profile under "Yahoo", allowing anybody to see it. As Marlin said, private information shouldn't be posted on a public profile.
  12. Your email address is hidden from the outside world by default. If you add it again to your public profile, you are opening yourself up to scammers. Stop it! Don't post your e-mail address within threads. Use the Private Message feature!
  13. It's happened again! Despite the Security Notice we posted, despite posting it here. Your e-mail addresses are hidden from the outside world by default. But, many have added their email addresses again under "contact methods" or somewhere else in your public profile. If you have done that, scammers can reach out, pretending to be the seller and an unwary buyer sends the money to the scammer by mistake. Deal through PMs or directly via phone, unless you are very sure of the seller's email address. Never pay for guns via Paypal Friends & Family, or any other venue that does not support firearm transactions!!
  14. Your ad says .32, the box in the photo shows .38?
  15. Buyers been hit by a flurry of scam e-mails from an address with "Intersport Performance" in the name, pretending to be the seller, attempting to hijack the payment. If you have your e-mail address added to your profile under "contact methods", delete it! Deal with PMs or double-check the address of an e-mail sender.
  16. If you are buying or selling items on the Classified Forum, check your profile and delete your email address if you added it under any of the "Contact Methods" or any other place in your public profile. You are making yourself a target for scammers. They do not have to be Wire Members to see your email address and try to rip you off.

  18. I checked and we don't have a Doc Clint on the Wire, so this is coming from outside. Y'all done good by being on your toes. The scammers are everywhere!
  19. They were at the Shot Show just before that. Misty and Ruby just spent a week, or more, at EoT which had a lot of visitors. They were at the Red Dead Redemption gathering last year, and they'll probably be there this year. Misty puts a lot of time and effort into promoting SASS. I don't know their itinerary, but they'll be at many of the large shows/events this year.

  21. Those are the older version Eagle Gunfighter Grips.
  22. "Charlie120" banned. Guest pointing WTB ads towards a 3rd Party non-member.
