Be extremely careful contacting any seller with only a single post to their name. Most likely it is a scamer.

That's interesting. How would such a scam work, if the (single posters, no pics, short answers) poster was attempting a scam?

There are many variations, but basically, the scammer will say they have what you are looking for, appeal to greed by offering a super low price, arrange money transfer, then never ship the product.

The big tell is brand new members responding to "Wanted" items posted on public forums. Notice how all three responders here are first-time posters and offer no details.

Yea, kinda suspicious. They must set up some kind of bot to recognize WTB posts across myriad forums. Pretty crappy. Thanks Tee.
