You have NO reason to be pi$$ed off Latemod.

Beast was stating a published fact.

Read this link, top sticky on the Scammer page:

From this article on CNBC

as posted:Car Buyers Beware: Nine Notorious Scams

By Colleen Kane | CNBC – 22 hours agotweet56EmailPrint

Specifically:

"Wire Service Scam

Wire services such as Western Union and Money Gram are a favorite with scammers because financial transactions can be conducted anonymously and the recipient doesn’t have to offer proof of any service rendered or goods exchanged in order to collect the cash. A wire service scam in auto sales involves a potential buyer receiving an invoice stating that wire services can be used to complete transactions online. The buyer is advised this is the common payment method used by the site. If the supposed car seller doesn’t recommend using a legitimate escrow service, such as Escrow.com, to complete the transaction, it’s probably best to carry on the car search elsewhere.
"

The Sticky's are there to help you. Use that help. Auto buying or parts buying, there is no difference.

And if you are ticked at Beast for stating the obvious and trying to help you- Kick a note to CNBC as well.

That you used a service that scammers also use simply makes you an EXCEPTION not the norm.
