Warning to all:

Be wary of any unsolicited messages/conversations you may receive asking you to email someone who has a part for sale. This has become a common scam tactic here and on other forums.

This is commonly how such emails will look. If you should receive such a message, please report it immediately (using the "REPORT" link at the bottom of the message.

I’ve been getting a tons of these requests on a WTB post. Easy to spot now, and doing a search for the email addresses will bring up the same posts on other forums

One of the ways we help curb this on a forum I moderate is to limit posting in For Sale/WTB forums to people with at least 50 posts. Another way is to only allow the OP to post in their thread (all others would have to use PM). Neither of these eliminate the thief, but they reduce their effectiveness significantly.

I received one from Kyle72 today with the same Tasha email address. Watch out for this! They were after my WTB thread.

Mine was the WTB thread as well.
