Member denver77 is a scammer

Sent me a PM
Telling me his buddy has a car for sale
Buddy then tells me to PayPal him 5k to get additional info.
Ridiculous

Here's the email correspondence
I removed my email address.
So ridiculous



Just make a payment of 1k to the address, just to confirm it’s a serious deal..After it’s been confirmed, we will continue with our deal..

Make the payment twice to this PayPal address Cdallmann99@gmail.com...Send 2500 to the PayPal address and then once it’s confirmed, I’ll let you know when to send the other..So we can proceed..Please make the payment family and friends...Thanks

I have the title and also the vin and can send you both if you’re really interested, I’ll only agree to send the vin when a 10% upfront payment is made..I’ll be willing to send the Vin and title after the upfront payment, Reason is because of the vin and title clone scam going on..Your funds is refundable if we both don’t come to a terms

This is literally a scam.

But don't hesitate to answer the Nigerian prince that want to share his fortune with you, he is 100% legit.

I had one of these myself once. I told the scammer as luck would have it that I would be in that city in a few days so I could bring the money in person. My day job is in part to move money electronically all over the world for one of our worlds largest banks. I see this a lot and for not thousands but for millions. They get real creative and yet people and companies fall for these scams. Sometimes I get involved before it happens but sometimes it is too late. Last year one of my good customers sent 400K to what he thought was payment to a title company for a down payment on a home. He sent the money, called the title company, they did not get it. Quick action stopped the electronic transfer but even that fast some of it got to a bank in Greece. It took over a month to retrieve all of his money back to his bank account and he lost the house that he had attempted to buy. Beware every time you transfer funds electronically.



If one day you have time look up "cyber kidnapping".

I was SCAMMED

Wow, I have bought and sold a lot of things on many forums over the last 12 years. I have made and save a lot of money doing it.

I was buying a set of tires:
This member: robertkraft sent this PM to me
a buddy has this for sale and he is asking $900 including shipping via FedEx, you can reach Martin at mcal3438@gmail.com if youre still interested


He used pictures from a previous sell by WV ZL1LE and if I'm right WV ZL1LE also sold his car which sounds just like the one mentioned in this thread

He didn't like my PayPal transaction because it wasn't friends and family.
That PayPal address was fmwangi57@yahoo.com
Then he request Apple Pay to the following 713-240-5133
2 days later I inquire about tracking then he says he needs $150 more for shipping, back and forth it went. Refund was requested, no money have to wait until the end of the month. He stated, but after find this info as well as other.
Link below:
https://www.stromtrooper.com/threads...a-scam.432945/

But this is his info
Martin Calvin -mcal3438@gmail.com - ranraw77@gmail.com
(724) 381-4528
New Salem, PA

He claims he lives in LA

Looking I feeling he is using several different member ID as well on this forum. possibility Dan1LE
If anyone has had any experiences please reach out to me
