Same story , saw your wtb ad , my buddy has exactly what you're looking for . He'll supply a phone number and usually gmail .

Another scammer reported - d3k7
 
d3k7 has been banned. His MO was to respond to WTB, and use pictures found on the net.

vb1911forum 08-29-2018 12:46 PM

Thank you!
I have banned @protonmail in the backend.
No users will be able to create an account under that email address.
Keep us posted on this.

Reminder .

These thieves are still operating . Beware of any attempts to sell you whatever you posted WTB via the pm's especially .
Usually a newer member with a low or 0 post count .

guy sajer 07-05-2020 01:29 PM

ALERT/Warning remains in effect for the Classifieds .

Continue to beware of PM's from new members responding to Classified WTB ads and telling you "I can get it" or "Contact xxxx , he has it " and then an email address . They most likely have 0 post history or maybe a handful of meaningless replies .
