Beware! Possible Scammer on FG!

Hey Guys,

Be on the lookout for a scammer. He tried selling me some Carden wings for $125 shipped from California and he could do a PayPal gift payment only. I spoke with him on the phone and he had broken English. His name on the email is Rufus Job and his phone number is 213-814-5177. I got a message from RCPete16 on FG and he told me to contact him about some parts I needed. The guy sent me pictures of a Carden and I just so happen to know the builder of the airframe. So long story short Just be on the lookout guys!

Scammer! Lookout fellas!

If it sounds too good to be true, then........

Especially in the Marketplace. If you repky back to them, and you get nothing in return in a week or so... You know its a scam. But if they supply pics and you talk with them on the phone, then maybe, just maybe truat them enough for you to pay for it. But make it known, that if the item is misrepresented, it will be returned and all money will be refunded.

I was contacted by Rufus the Doofus regarding a Tuny built carden pro, new for 1800.00.

Never any followup.

I would be very Leary of buying from anyone that doesn't have a solid "trader rating".
