    most of the crap is evident of being fake.usually refers to "your item". but I got a response to my want ad re a Hedstrom frame. the response was personal and specific to my ad. at first I thought it was legit. But I found the picture was taken off ebay.
    point is these guys are getting more sophisticted and we need to be doubly sure of who we are dealing with. I want references and a location so it can be checked out.

    Recently I posted an ad on the AMCA wanted section looking for a 32-34 Chief rear fender. I got 3 different emails from England and all of them had the fender I needed. I was to send the money by Western Union. They could not send me pictures because they were having problems with their computer. One guy was persistent and sent 3 emails. I have the addresses they left me. I told them they were crooks and gave them a piece of my mind. I probably should have just deleted their emails at the beginning. Live and learn. Tom

    Wow Tom... that b.s. came from an ad on the forum eh? You too HAWG? I've avoided online ads for the last while just so I didn't have to put up with scammers. I guess this is a prime example for doing so. I haven't been in the parts gathering game for a little bit but what I have managed to drag home came from friends or were close enough that I could go to the sellers house in person.

    Holy crap Sirhr.... you could masquerade as a Nigerian scammer with ease!!!

    Chris Mathews is a known restorer out of North Jersey. Wonder if they picked his name out online somewhere to give it credibility??
