I posted a discussion on here the other day because I am looking for a hardtop for my car (I still am) and I got a good amount of private messages giving me offers. I just want to say: if a relatively new account (under a week old) is telling you to email their "friend" don't trust it. I have had my time wasted by this, and I just wanted to warn others of potential scams. Some useful tips, always be sure to reverse image search the photos and ALWAYS ask if they can send a photo with your username and the current date. If they refuse, they are most likely a scammer. Thanks for coming to my ted talk

Don't assume Paypal will have your back if you get ripped. They are famous for their "Nothing we can do. Cased closed." approach.

yeah there use to be a strict policy on this forum that new accounts/low posts could not sell items here until they established themselves in this forum’s community. just for the reason of scammers.
