I am a member of and one of our members has just posted the following warning ref an ebay and forum scam artist - please be careful chaps.

wrxpaul Today at 7:42 am

A scammer is using car forums to sell 'a garage full of parts'... his reason for selling is that his wife/girlfriend wants rid of all the parts and he needs the money to finish his Land Rover.

The parts for sale are sought after and all listed cheaply with delivery included... payment is by PayPal only.

He has appeared on various forums of late and recently did an Escort forum out of at least £1000!

His IP address traces back to an NTL IP in the Northampton area and Northampton Police have already opened a case file on him.

He lists his addresses as:

31 west walk
corby old village

and his inlaws live at

1 west view
corby old village
nn17 1as

Although these addresses are false.

His PayPal account was under the address.

Using the names Mark Dines and Martin (or Martyn) Dines.

PLEASE BE VERY WARY OF NEW MEMBERS OFFERING PARTS AT TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE PRICES! If you aren't sure about a member selling parts, please contact the forum mods.

Thank for reading this and be careful out there. If you know any other forums that could benefit from this info, please pass it on.
