    Beware of Scammers in the WTB section. Just a warning. Please read

    scammers in the WTB section beware. i posted a WTB for an mtech1 wing.

    he asks me to email him, so i do






    he then sends me this e-mail with photos (e-mail seems fishy so i google image search the photos)







    I find his photos that he sent me in a bimmerforums thread from 2008

      Thank you. I'm going to feel like a dick if he ends up sending me a picture of the wing with a penny on it

      But I'm 99.999% positive it was a scammer. Hopefully there isn't anybody else falling for it.

        Nothing wrong with being safe. It's sad that it's hard to trust anyone.

                    Ya I figured he was trying this on a few people. Hopefully nobody sent him $.

                      Had one hit me up. When I saw he had 1 or no posts I never replied.

                        Did the same. I seen 1 post which was his post telling me to email him and I immediately ignored it.

                          Make sure you guys report them to mods. Just because you know it's a scam doesn't mean other people won't fall for it.

                            I've had a couple guys trying to sell me a Lachssilber bumper that fit the description.

                            Told me to email him and send moneygram, but it was through the guest message system, not PM.
                            Obviously, I chalk it off as a scam right away and didn't even message him back
