    We have discovered a possible new scam on ADV Rider. You post a WTB, and you receive a PM referring you to an alleged third party who has this part. It's all email addresses.

    If you receive one of these messages, please report them immediately.

    We have banned several for sending the same PM. The PMs all come from users that have zero posts.

    All of the PMs end with, "you can thank my later."

    We are also trying to leave profile messages on the profile pages of the banned scammers so that a bit of due diligence will make other users aware.
