Don’t take this guys bait . This is a scam . He preys on want adds to get money out of people. He got me and now I’m out a few hundred dollars. I curse him and hope he is miserable along with his helpers. Sure wish people would work for their money rather than steel from hard working people.

I had a message from this guy a while ago, I don’t believe I ever followed up with him. Sorry you got taken by this scumbag.

Here’s the message he sent me with a similar story for everyone to be aware of...

Sorry to hear that. It is a standard scammer technique. Been used for more than a year on some RC model sites. Gets you off the site using email address and then no public record .
Then they hope for friends and family PP or EMT

# 1 always do your research especially on new members
if something doesn't feel right chances are its not, :|
ask for recent pics with a signature and date and a phone number and address
also be carful if anyone insists on Pay Pal...and don't be friend or family on that pay pal... :evil:
this clown Josh458 is in L.A.

I feel like an idiot after this ordeal but hopefully , this stops someone else here from a scam. In my defence , he did send me pictures , and a great write up. I looked all over the Internet for the pics that he sent and nothing came up. Either way , play safe and never use PayPal as friend or family.
