        Classic scam attempt. Scammer just happens to know someone who has that exact part for sale, as if people keep an inventory list of all the car parts that their friends or associates have for sale.

        They're also probably harvesting your now confirmed email address and selling it to spammers.

                Is he posting or sending PMs?

                if you see posts, you can report it and one of us (TWO!) active mods will delete it. If it's a PM, we can't see anything. I guess replying to this thread is the best way to deal with it.

                          Hey all- be careful with Breda (https://www.r3vlimited.com/board/member/123942-breda)

                          He reached out stating that he had Euroweaves he wanted to part with, for too cheap a price.

                          He sent me photos and they were suspicious- photos were blurry, like they were screenshotted. I recognized the backdrop from the photos (from Elrich Wheelworks), so I went digging and low and behold found the wheels I was being “sold”.

                          I asked if he had any photos of them on the car, to verify they were real, and he did not, and immediately started pushing a fast timeframe. I called him out and he immediately stopped responding.

                          Anyway, he seems a bit more dangerous than the “email my friend he has a set” type of guy, because he knew what I was looking for and the right type of photos to send, similar to the Mario scammer who successfully scammed a ton of folks on here recently, where they know what people are looking for and know the market and take advantage.

                          He has logged in every day since, too, so beware. Mods, ban if possible before someone gets burned out of a significant amount of coin.

                              Temp ban all legit users for a week. Scammers will have only scammers to scam.
