i purposefully deleted the subject line and emailed right back asking for pics - if you had just sent an email to me, you wouldnt need a refresher on what you have. confident this was a scam attempt:

I actually know him personally, he makes a living off selling parts. I met him for the first time at a local junk yard believe it or not, and have ran into him MULTIPLE times since then at other local yards. Last time I ran into him he lend me a hand pulling a differential out of a car. I've never bought anything from him personally, but I know local people in the e30 community that have. I have no clue what scam's he's pulled, but as far as I know dealing with him locally seems to work out..

Edit: Actually I bought my euroweaves from him in 2013 or so come to think of it.

I buy parts off that guy all the time - never had an issue. Good price, well packaged, fast shipping, package tracking, ect.

That's just been my experience.

I was contacted by both e30PartsGuy and Ben709 regarding a set of late model plastic bumpers. Not sure how to proceed.

Guys

This "Ben Joshua 709" idiot tried to pass off stock photos of an naturally aspirated ITB setup as a turbo intake manifold. I called BS and he ghosted.

Buyers beware.

I bought them a few months ago for my car but some things have come up and I need to sell them asap. 38mm wastegate flange, I have an adapter for an mvs I can include

Intake manifold comes with custom fuel rail and throttle body.

I feel like this is relevant. The spammers are out of control.

Scammer

Here's another one that goes by Kay Jay and here's his email address kayj785@gmail.com

Tried to get his address to pick parts up in person and got no response. Asked for phone number and he said he had no phone

Firstly, thanks to all for the info here. I'm getting messaged by this E30 Parts Guy as well concerning a 3.73 LSD.

Interestingly enough, he provided me with a PayPal account; however, he isn't answering any question regarding how he's going to package the item and told me the diff weighed 100lbs. I found somewhere on the forums that the medium case weighs around 80lbs.

On a similar note, He says he's going to take the diff off of his 325is: this is the only car he has listed on his profile.

Any thoughts guys?

PS. is it a lost cause to be looking for the 3.73 diff? So far I've been contacted by another seedy, very new member who is also allegedly selling a diff that he already has listed as sold in the for sale forum, "slayersden".

Join date is today, for this guy who pmed me about my WTB: cardinal door cards. Whenever I get a PM asking me to contact them via email, why? You just did via PM. That's a Red flag.
