Scammers on the forum

So I received a private message today from someone responding to my parts wanted post. The person is a scammer so I wanted to caution everyone in the wanted section that if you get a similar message its a good idea to check the account that messaged you to see when their account was created and how many posts they have. In this case the account was created this month, had 0 posts, wrote poorly, and directed me to email what looked like a throw-away email account (just numbers and letters @GMail.com).

I think "Darryl" in New York is about to get a lot of male genitalia pictures in his inbox.

I wonder if the mods can run a script to ban accounts sending out that generic message...

Send a message via AIM to Corey Young Send a message via Yahoo to Corey Young
This is a common phishing scam attempt on many different forums. They will go to the wanted section and PM everyone.
