  1. Your ad says .32, the box in the photo shows .38?
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

  5. 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!
  6. "Charlie120" banned. Guest pointing WTB ads towards a 3rd Party non-member.
  7. If you DO get scammed, besides reporting the fraud to the police at that person's location. File a complaint on the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) web site.
  8. He's already been banned. His name sounds familiar don't it? He started as Jason Perry, then he was PerryJS, (there was another iteration that I've forgotten at the moment), and now Perry Jason. All using the third-party scam. We ban the obvious ones in our daily vetting of new Wire Members. But, a quick report from y'all gets it done faster. Keep on the lookout for the next mole to be whacked!
  9. Yep, he made up a new name. He's been PerryJS, JSPerry, and other iterations. This time Jason SP. Banned. Thanks for the heads up! He uses a Proxy/VPN service to disguise his real location; but seems to originate near Lagos? Typical 3rd Party Scam.
  10. dhqlyahf1 from Karachi has been banned, and his posts deleted. I did not open his Valentine's attachment. Who knows what that could do? Just don't open attachments. Don't do it.
  11. We keep saying it and have even made several threads about it in the past. If you get a private message in response to your WTB ad, from someone you do not know. Especially a non-SASS member, ASK us first. We'll be glad to check them out for you. We can see where they are posting from. We can tell you if they are using a VPN to hide their location. We can tell you if they are from India or Nigeria. We can tell you if they seem to be another identity of a past scammer. Ask questions! Scammers usually don't last long, but in their 1 or 2-hour life on the Wire, they will steal what money they can. Hit and run. Whack-a-mole. Be careful out there!
  12. For my niece, gone too soon. We love you and miss you, sweet Melissa.
  13. Banned. Unsolicited PMs from non-SASS members, referring you to buy from an unknown 3rd party, is the classic scam. Don't fall for it!
  14. I had to read up on them. It's true. There was a crime syndicate of lions (like the Corleones) called the Mapogo Lion Coalition, descendants of the original crime bosses. Their lives could parallel the infighting and rise to power of different factions of the old Italian mob. Cool! Thanks Pat, I had no idea.
  15. "VictorH" has also been banned. But, I expect we'll see him back under another alias, doing the 3rd party trick.
  16. Hit "report" within the conversation, upper right corner, the 3 dots, so we can see how he is communicating with you, as he's been banned from the Wire. Is he using PM? email? If you are receiving such messages through SASS Wire PMs, always hit "report" from within the conversation, so we can mash these bugs.
  17. Jreese - Las Vegas via way of Lagos. Banned
  18. Dang. I'm sure sorry you got caught up in one of those 3rd party scams. Daniel56 was not a SASS member. He was very briefly a Wire member. He registered at 2:18 am and was banned that same morning. His email name was supposedly "Daniel Dominguez" out of Florida. But, his location was hidden behind a VPN. But, he slipped up once and we can trace his IP address back to Nigeria. Everybody please, this is why we restrict Classified sales to SASS Members only.
  19. Yep, the Third Party Scam. Donkj90, (IP address resolves to Lagos). Good catch folks. They scan the classified listings in forums for WTB posts and answer them all, hoping somebody, anybody, will fall for it.
  20. Using the third-party scam, Daniel56 was answering all the WTB ads. His IP address is hidden behind a VPN, so there is no way to know where he is. Be wary.
