Two contacts as I'm looking to buy a use Tubi exhaust.

First was a PM from Phoenix604

This name was also associated with the seat scam thread.

I was also contacted by a member Mark001

He only has one posting offering to sell another exhaust. He stated he was local but wanted a PayPal deposit "gift" to hold the mufflers. He said another buyer was coming so if i wanted them, I need to send him funds.

If another buyer was coming, why did he offer them if he already had a deposit per his requirement???? SCAM!

Careful everyone, it only gets worse after tax refund season lol!

Interesting in that I also received a PM from Phoenix604 with a link to a bogus Rennlist page looking for me to sign in, in response to a WTB thread I posted.

Thanks for the heads up....

There is another thread that I suspect. Hopefully I am wrong, but user murph550 has a Recaro Pro Racer SPG seat with OEM sliders for $300 - Aside from being an amazing steal, the listing has 2 inconsistencies in it. I reported the listing for investigation by the admin. I hope I am wrong... but everyone be cautious.

IF YOU DO GET SO FAR AS TO LOG INTO THEIR FAKE SITE, CHANGE YOUR RENNLIST PASSWORD IMMEDIATELY. OTHERWISE THEY WILL HAVE ACCESS TO YOUR RENNLIST USERNAME AND PASSWORD AND SUBSEQUENTLY YOUR ENTIRE RENNLIST ACCOUNT TO DO WHAT THEY PLEASE. LIKE POST FAKE FOR SALE ADS AND MESSAGE OTHER USERS TO BAIT THEM.
