More than likely a scammer.

'Hello, Brandon has been trying to part out with his Tekno SCT410.3 and it's in excellent condition.. I'll suggest that you should contact him to know if it's still available..‪ [email protected] You can email him.'

i said it many times if you post on the want ads you will get these scam emails, but people will never learn and continue to post on the wanted section

So if there's a better way to find what we're looking for, please suggest it.

Nothing wrong with posting in WTB itself, in my opinion. But one should be aware of (and prepared for) what might happen, when you do.
And you should definitely never trust any random stranger on the internet (who you know exactly nothing about), with any amount of money with payment options that offer no refunds. Nobody should fall for such a cheap trick, not in 2022. Neither here on rctech nor in any other place online.

Some people still seem to expect that you mods can magically stop this from happening by banning these accounts. Some only need to vent their frustration after nearly or really falling for this. While others seem to need a name listed here to be convinced it's a scam after all (as if it's that difficult to see through). Whatever the reason, you won't be able to stop them, I'm afraid.

nope we canít the only way is for the admins to make a post restriction of private messaging , like 10 post minimum of something besides that we canít do anything about it , so deal at your own risk here
