    Never heard of him. Hold money is a deposit to buy. If you don't buy it after you get there, you won't get your deposit back in most cases. Keep in contact, take your chances no one else buys it, and just go there when you can. JMO.

    This guy is most likely a Scammer and a poor one at that. I have tried extensively on the phone to work w/him on this engine he has listed. He demands that I send him money to hold until sale is complete.Yet he will not tell me when or where I can see this item. I told him at the beginning of the week that I needed him to get in contact w/me by Thursday(yesterday) so I could bring the full amount w/me . And he refuses to work w/me. I think others need to know this. He has what sounds like a pakistanny accent.

    I'm going through the same with this guy. Claims his name is Brian Weber, but has heavy accent and wants to communicate via text. Secondly, he indicated he was going to put engine in a Chevelle...really? A Boss 302 in a Chevelle? Next, his account on here is fordsquad01, yet his email is ChevelleTeam@engineer.com. Engineer.com is a common DNS for scammers. Also, the phone number listed is registered in another name.

    BBFMavrick...are you local to DC? If so, then I would only entertain buying this in person with witness. Not sure if he is a scammer, but seems to be.

    I did a profile search for fordsquad01 and he does not have an account.
    Also if #760423 is his ad number it does not exist either (three digits short).
    Is he advertising on RJ or some other place?

    This is the ad that I was interested in...Ad #182493687. He wants me to send $500 deposit via Walmart and will ship motor. After motor is received by me and validated, I should send the remaining $5,500. He emailed me a contract that stated such an arrangement.

    1. Says his name is Brian Weber. Cannot locate a Brian Weber in DC that matches this guy.
    2. Says his address is 521 Peabody St NE, Washington, DC. Cannot find Brian Weber at this address
    3. Says his phone is 202-792-0927. Cannot find who owns that phone. One search came up with Arlett Bivin
    4. Wants to use Walmart and refuses to use Escrow.com.
    5. Wants me to only send $500 and he would send the motor, saying the 'contract' protects us.
    6. Uses engineer.com email domain

    To me, all of these items are red flags.

    I have just received the same contract from wmorrase #786007)in DC trying to sell a TR6060. Wants me to send $500 through Wal Mart and the rest after I receive and inspect it. He sent me a copy of his drivers license with the name Markus Gerhard using the email address chevelleteam@engineer.com. Texts me from 202-688-7368 and called me from 757-204-6647 (with a heavy foreign accent). I'll pass on this to-good-to-be-true deal. Thanks for the information. Hopefully we can prevent the next guy from sending money too.
