I'm not really that active on this board, but I have been here for a few years. I posted a thread about trying to find a specific knife in the WTB section. I had someone email me and he said he had the knife. We negotiated on a price via email. When we came to an agreement, he asked me to PayPal him to another address, one that was in Malasia.
Long story short, he tried to scam me because I ran a search on his new email address that he provided, and it looks like he scammed a few members here. He's fishing in the WTB section. It might be a good idea to perhaps post a sticky in that section for newbies.
Lucky for me, I was able to cancel the transaction before he accepted the PayPal funds. And for those who don't know, if you send funds to someone via PayPal and it's sent as a gift....you can't dispute it. Be careful guys, I will only deal with long time vets of this forum in the future...this was my mistake, but I got lucky and was able to stop it.
