Click here to read more about these kind of scams.

Remember:

  • DO NOT do business with anyone who offers to send you payment for a higher amount than your selling price with the understanding that you'll send back the balance.

  • Be suspicious of anyone claiming to be acting on behalf of a "client" or another "customer".

  • Be suspicious of anyone claiming to be from Nigeria or West Africa

  • If you agree to accept a check payment, then do not send anything, gear or "change" before the check cleared. And be careful, if you manage to clear a fraudulent check then you may be liable for the damages if the bank finds out later. Make sure your bank authenticates the check.

  • If it sounds to good to be true, then it probably is.

Thank you. I also wanted to report this scam after "adio" contacted me and didn't want to give me any info about where I was sending the jumpsuit he was "interested" in.

I also recieved an email from this clown wanting to buy a reserve canopy from me. I suspected a scam and it looks like I was right. Just wanted to let you guys know that "Adio" is trying to con multiple DZ.com users. When I suggested in a later email that we use Paypal to ensure neither one of us gets ripped off, it scared him off.


Thanks,
Matt

year. I am Selling it because I dont need it. The price is $650 and the buyer pays shipping. The

business.

Thanks,
