I got a PM from 'Lindi' also. Tried to forward it to BigKev but couldn't figure out how to forward a PM......??


You simply copy the PM and paste it into a new email or PM to BigKev, making sure to include the user name if it's not part of the PM. I sent one this morning but all of you should do so too so that he know it's not an isolated case.

I also suggested setting up some kind of vetting system, possibly where new members can't post right away and must wait for admin approval or must otherwise go through some process to prove they belong here. Some of the private Packard and other automotive Facebook groups have a brief questionnaire that new applicants must go thorough which seems to work that Lindi would never have been able to do.

The CAPTCHA and email verification get about 99% of the bot scammers. But if a human actually goes through the process and completes everything, there is little I can do to catch them until they actually start misbehaving.

I'll see if I can make an adjustment to the PM feature, so they can't PM until they are at least on the website for several days. That should foil the hit-and-run ones.

If you're not having fun, maybe it's your own damned fault.

If you see someone "just popping in" and trying immediately to sell a higher priced item from a posting in the Wanted section, be very wary! They are likely scammers. If they send you photos of the parts, search the Internet and chances are you'll find the same photos posted elsewhere, such as on eBay.

On another site I was looking for a steering wheel and someone sent me a message with what looked like a nice one at a reasonable cost. Fortunately I recognized the photo right away from a steering wheel restoration site!
