Default Alphamiller trolling wanted to buy section

I donít know where to report potential fraud, but Iíve been receiving messages from alphamiller who has been trolling the wanted to buy section. It is clear that they are trying to sell cars that donít exist.

theres no rule we havent followed? every time I see your post its telling people to obey the rules or blaming us for someone elseís wrong doing. And in this case we know who it is for once. Arenít you a moderator? Ban this guy please. A guy messaged all of us, directing us to a email for the sale that none of us followed. But one day someone will, regardless of the posted rules about dealing off the site so just please ban him. Itís obvious heís scamming people and itís your job to clean this sight up where u can. Thanks!

your posted rules keep people from falling victim to this, but if you are able to catch whoís doing it initially, shouldnít you just ban them? Alphamiller is the name, thanks again

we are all taking the proper measures to make people aware of this guy and get him gone. Letís just do the right thing here and boot him. I think the best original response would have been ď I banned him, keep in mind these rules to follow when dealing with wtb ads ( insert link here)Ē
