Here is a brief primer on scammers that frequent here:

User names will often include a name: chrisjohnson223 and email will often not match the user name.

They will tell you they or someone they know has whatever it is you are selling for sale and to email that person.

Code:
Kindly contact Andrew he has for sale in good condition his email

Do not give them your email, however if you do chose to engage them via email it makes sense to check the headers of the email and then check the IP addresses that are shown there.

Code:
Delivery-date: Tue, 20 Apr 2021 12:21:19 -0400
Received: from [173.44.129.85] (port=44578 helo=002e20f5.boostplan.buzz)
If it doesn't match where they say they are from, or if it links to Nigeria especially, it is most definitely a scam.

If you have been contacted via PM here from a person you suspect to be scammer please report the PM or send a link to their user profile to a moderator for them to check.

There has be a large uptick in scammers joining since we changed owners and this should be a heads up to those that sell here that this is happening.

Feel free to PM me if you need a potential buyer checked out.

Thank you,
