They checked him out and said he appears to be on the up and up. the whole 2 PayPal account thing had me a little fishy. better safe than sorry. thank y'all for the guidance.

I have 4 emails and the one I use here isn't the same as my Paypal so it can get confusing for sure. No harm in checking him out.

Doc Clint is a scammer. If you post your email address or phone number or other information on this forum he’ll try to get to you!!!!

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".   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.

I think we also need to be mindful of what we post in forums. I often see members posting their contact information in threads. It doesn't take much detective work for a scammer to find that information and use it to contact the person or impersonate someone else. Scammers can make their phone numbers appear as someone else so I would bet that the same thing can be done with emails.

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.
