    Default BEWARE - New scammer approach in classifieds

    Here is another angle rip-off artists are pursuing in the FPGeeks classifieds.

    Today, member singlechange posted a Balance for sale in the FOR SALE subforum. While he was still editing his initial post with photos, I posted a reply requesting the length of the pen. Two hours later the following pops up in Private Messages. Notice the member name.

    The scammer is reading replies requesting information and then tries to intervene between seller and potential buyer by redirecting inquiries to a third party.
