Hi. I just saw this and I’m glad you had enough sense to reject that offer. Offer Up and Craig’s List are ruined with these scamming imbeciles. With that said I am selling a brand new top on eBay. Check me out, I’m legit. ThanksI would tell anyone that is buying anything from someone online that they should use an escrow service. Also got a response like this from a user saying the same in reply to my wanted soft top ad saying email so and so. When I emailed them about the soft top they said $500 shipped for a premium soft top and it was a dead give away it was a scam. Still yet I would have used an escrow service which in my experience has always sent scammers looking for an easier target.
We had the same issue over on an old Willys forum. In addition to more scrutiny, the moderators adjusted the settings to add a minimum posting requirement before a new user can send private messages or view the classifieds. Many recent scammers were joining after slipping through, heading straight to the "wanted" section of the classifieds, and seeing who they could scam.Hi.
