    Attention: If you received a PM or an email from him do not respond or email him and definitely do not send him money. He is a Nigerian scammer and you will not get anything you paid for.

    Once again Do not send johnpollard594 any money, he is a scammer.

    To add to this, was contacted by this same dude, who steered me to a guy who goes by Kyle Morgan who insisted we only communicate via email. Would not talk to me via phone, wanted me to send payment via Paypal friends/family to not him, but his secretary. Paypal has no recourse to get your bucks back should you send money in this manner by the way. All sounded hinky to me so did not proceed mostly due to the no recourse with Paypal should things not go as represented. So to add to the above, doing business with either johnpollard594 or Kyle Morgan, let the buyer beware.

    Thanks Dave K by the way for this heads up, was wondering if I should post something before you did. Let's keep this community safe from this kind of BS.

    I could tell he was sketchy. He messaged me saying he knew someone who had pitbull trs pins i was looking for. The email was that kyle morgan. The price was normal but the guys language was slightly off and when i said i wont do friends and family he never responded. But he went through all that for 60$. Glad you got rid of him.

    For future, it doesnt matter to the seller whether they get the money via f&f and goods and services. Pay the 3% and they will receive the same amount. Goods and services is mostly to protect the buyer.

    I had the same thing happen to me with a set of wheels he insisted I send him money friends and family which I did not. He than proceeded to tell me to send him a few hundred friends and family to ship the wheels cause it was the holidays and he needed money for his kids gifts. I never sent him any money but he kept emailing me trying to get money from me I told him good and services only.

    I'm debating on changing the title of this thread and turning this into a buyer beware thread. Problem is some people are jackwagons and lose their minds if someone doesn't send them a picture, takes a few minutes to reply or are just too high maintenance as a buyer so the seller "fires them" as a customer and complain. Even had one DEMAND I contact the seller for him and then ban the seller because he was told to get screwed.

    We'll see.

    Dave, I am a member on a large Offshore Performance site. They have "Beware and Stolen" section. Offshore Only is the forum. Sure does help in identifying the scum. Sorry, boat talk.

    Here we go again! My gut wants me to believe that this is John Pollard coming back for us again. We gotta do something to keep these threads safe. Please see the attached screenshot I took this morning. It is the same message John Pollard used to scam me and other individuals early on. Please block PaulPeterson020. Buyer Beware!

    Be careful, they are trying to create new IDs here and continue the scam. I caught a bunch of new IDs that follow their SOP.

    I'm killing the IDs as I catch them but be warned on dealing with people here you do not know!

    That response looks familiar. Response seemed off, so I didn't engage with it.

    And speaking of off, just realised that I might have got a better series of responses if I had gotten the title correct and asked for a 2017-2020 triple clamp.

    He was one of them and you should be hearing nothing more from that ID.
