Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.


Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.


If listing a car, post:
-The year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model
-As many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. For tires, note any gashes, bubbles, cupping or curb rash
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every wheel


If listing parts, post:
-What brand and what models it can be used on
-An accurate description
-How long it/they have been used for
-Any imperfections
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


For miscellaneous items, post:
-A detailed description of the item
-How long it/they were used for
-Any imperfections
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


For WTB threads
-Be as detailed as possible.
-List exactly what you want, what variations you will accept, colors or materials, etc.
-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.


In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

    I recenlty received a reply in my in box regarding someone who is not on this site who has parts that I was looking for in this section.
    I was given a name and e-mail address to the contact of the parts. I e-mailed the person and at first seemed legit and professional and as correspondance continued asked me immediately how
    I wanted to make payment. I asked for a shipping quote twice and it was ignored. Just a request to send funds immedietely and package would be shipped with a tracking number. it all sounded
    fine until I request for shipping was finally answered with a rediculously now amount. Too many red flags started going off. I then replied back to the person on here about the identity of this individual
    I was dealing with. that came with no response. after 15 emails back and forth the dialogue changed and the written english language started to slide in quality. This has all the signs of a scam!!!
    I confirmed this with paypal when I told the individual he will only get my money through a good and service transaction. The conversion went sour from there.

    Please note those of you looking for parts on here please be advised people are fishing for unsuspecting people such as myself to steal money from.
    you may recieve a pm with a forwarding e-mail address to take you off site. I received a referral from someone who is a member on here. so who knows.

    user name: Deon19 the address he forwarded is sbernard626@gmail.com

        UGGHHH!!!! I think I just got scammed by deon19/sbernard626@gmail. I Venmod him $70 (under yet another name–Vanessa Vespo). He said he would send me the cup tray from his Husco armrest. Initially he wanted $300 for the whole armrest.

        Can anything be done to stop this guy?

          At one point I had a few wanted ads posted here and I would get scammers message me every few days. Generally they always have a post count of 1 (or less than 10), want you to "take it offline", and may be "selling for a friend". If it seems shady, I'll offer to pay the paypal fees for a "goods and services" transaction so I'm protected.

              Looks like Deon19 made his first post in the forum for some reason, responding to a 4 year old thread:

              https://www.r3vlimited.com/board/for...ng-tecno-r-504


              Maybe he's starting to create a Post History so he can scam more members ?

                        Basically, if anyone does not use something resembling proper language or formatting just ignore it.
