    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.

    If you get a reply for a WTB ad, check the profile. Every scammer that has been banned, a profile message is added, identifying them as a scammer.
