Default What should I do??

I am going to leave thread links and user names out of this until I get your guyses opinions.

Ok, so I asked a member to send me pics of their t4.1 and they sent them. Then a couple of days later I see a DIFFERENT member have a FS thread of "another" t4.1 with the exact same pics.

What should I do since I dont know which one of them is the scammer or if they both got the pics off of the internet and they are both scammers?

So I need your help: let it go, or show threads and usernames? I just want to try to prevent future scammers from striking!

I've been scammed that way before look at there feedback, if the guy who's scamming is at zero he may be stealing pics. but if there's a scammer you should at least tell ppl so they can avoid being ripped of as well

Easy way is to ask for a different photo with your Yankee fan name on a card..simple and not accusing either..

I would just call them out on it. You never know. They could both be scammers. Or the one you think is, might not be. Call them out and the guy that is the rightful owner/seller of it will come out and say something and the other guy is left out to dry. I think many people that are scammers on this site are returning scammers, just with a different name. Thats why I would call them out. My opinion.

, ask for pics with user name. this happened to me also, i sold my old race truggy and about 2 months later saw it for sale with same pics i had posted. he was not a scammer but just dint have a way to take new pics so used mine. that may be the case, or maybe not. if he can post pics it should not be a problem for him to take another pic with user name being shown

REPORT THE FREAKING THREADS!!

You all love to cry about the freaking scammers but don't do anything about it....except cry. Report it, with detail, so something can be done about it. If they're not scamming, nothing will happen. If they are, something will happen. what's the drawback of that situation. Jesus H. Christ moderating is like babysitting.

Why would I cry? Because you gave me an infraction for bumping my for sale threads more than once a day??? I broke a rule of the forum. I got caught. My fault, No one to blame but me. Its gonna be gone in a week. But why would I cry? But I hope it makes you feel better. Also deleted my for sale threads. Again, not gonna bother me cause I will relist it in a week. Thanks

Never mind. He didn't have any feedback so he proved that it was his buddy just selling his truck. Close this thread please
