I rec'd this PM from Kenth today. A new member with 0 posts:

You can contact Teresa in Texas. She posted she has a 1955-56 Passenger Car Hydrovac Brake Booster for sale in mint condition. here's her email [email protected]


I replied to Kenth and have not rec'd any reply. If I do, I will update this thread.

Mikey, got the same type of PM earlier today concerning a piece of S/S trim I posted I was looking for. Did not reply to it, just seemed a bit off to me. Zero posts but a PM about an unknown person who has just what I seek with a unknown to me email? Guess I am just too suspicious in my old age? Please do post any further contact or info you have on this.

The IP for Kenth doesn`t show to be anywhere near Texas.

I replied that I needed photos and phone #. None of those and I'm not a fool...

I got one too. Sure, I'm gonna e-mail [email protected] gmail and give her my e-mail address. I need some more junk mail.

Isn't it obvious that he is a scammer.

In my experience this usually revolves around bad checks or over-payment (by accident of course) and a request from the scammer to wire or pre-pay card moneys to a third party.

The scammer will often offer to "over-pay" for the goods b/c they are in a rush/jam (enter any B.S. emergency) They are not looking for the "Part/piece" they are looking for a conduit to filter illicit moneys...again usually via check or fraudulent accounts.

I would guess whatever you offer, they will take. Even if you offered the wrong parts. They are ignorant. The scam from my experience is the washing of funds.

I got a reply from wonderwoman today with a photo of a hydrovac. No phone # or price, so no reply by me. Just fishers for silly people.

Small parts/$ is one scam. Big bucks for vehicles is at another level.
I inquired about a really nice 55 2 dr, in Alabama.
First, I am told the owner has moved to Chattanooga, but the car is still in Ala. Some BS about her being a widow, and had to move in w/ the daughter.
I was then told, I'd have to make a deposit, before the owner would travel back to Ala, to let me inspect the car. Ya, right!
No thanks. I then get an email, that her "daughter" would meet me, and no deposit.
One catch, if I looked at the car, and agreed to buy it, I had to pay for it, [CASH only], on the spot. Of course, I'd go to an unknown area w/ $20K in cash.
Bottom line: The pics of the car were from someone else's ad on Ebay.
Some scammers are fairly cleaver, most are not.
As for hauling a ton of cash around...Forget that! I pack my bulldog, just to go to the ATM!
