Weird. Some forums will delete those after awhile. I'll give you the Reader's Digest versions.
The first one (Scammer) was a guy that was going from forum to forum, posting things for sale in their market section and taking people's money when he didn't have anything to sell in the first place. The instance I posted was parts that he supposedly had on his 'Vette and needed to sell because he was having a baby and his fiance was on him about raising some money. The parts in question were a built motor out of his 'Vette and a supercharger. He advertise them at a great price. Too great, and the people picked up on it, one of the LEO's on the forum got his info and found out what was really going on. Apparently he did this on many other forums and it just now caught up to him.
He would get people interested, they would PM him and he would give them his bank routing number and information so that they could wire money directly to his bank account (supposedly only used for the sole purpose of selling things). After the money was in his account he would disappear.
The second one (Crazy People) was insane. Two guys got in to it on a forum, one of them drove 1300 miles to the other guys house and burned it down.
I wish the links weren't broken, because it was great to see how the guys on the 'Vette forum got info on him (and I mean info as in real name, address, pics of his house, where he worked, tax information...it was very thorough, lol).
Just be on the lookout as it seems this is a growing thing on car forums. This message has been edited. Last edited by: HemiHead04, document.write(''+ myTimeZone('Fri, 27 Jul 2007 18:05:09 GMT-0700', '27 July 2007 09:05 PM')+''); 27 July 2007 09:05 PM
