Hi all this is just a heads up to anyone with items in the Wanted forum. Today I received a PM from "Roberthadji" with the following text:

Kindly contact holmes in Mississippi, he has Diana 34 for sale in good condition
Here’s his email: holmespineda0@gmail.com


He has 0 posts on this forum so it is most probably another scam artist.

Thanks for the heads up. If we all do this they will surely give up on using this forum as a way to get their money.

Was it from “Roberthadji“ or is there more than one scammer out there?

I registered here to add to this conversation. I am a guitar collector and posted a "wanted" listing on one of the forums I'm on. I also received a PM asking to contact holmespineda0@gmail. I was looking for a very specific case which he provided photos of. Said he was in Mississippi also. Price was better than most, but still not cheap. I said I would only pay with PayPal, he said he wasn't set up for that and I declined the buy. This morning I got an email from him saying he now had a PayPal account. Something didn't feel right and the search led me here. Scammer for sure.
