    I was sent this private message in regards to a wanted ad I have up. I noticed this user has only one post and he signed his message with a very odd name. I’m just wondering if this site sometimes gets scammers on it?

    Hi

    If you’re still interested in getting the AF-XiED O2 sensor manipulator. I have a friend who can help you out with that. Here’s his gmail address

    Cheers 🍻

    Who has a friend
    That has exactly what you are asking for

    Why wouldn't the friend reach out to you?
    Why wouldn't the owner of the item sell it quickly and securely via one of many established sites intended for that purpose?

    Avoid.

    It's a common scam method on many boards.

    That's "weird name" at the bottom I believe is actually a failing to load smilie.

    Still, the behavior is definitely suspect. Better safe then sorry.
