The scammer starts with "(Still for sale?) Still for sale? 4.90 Progear set - $100? I am satisfied with price, I'll have a Certified Check issue deduct to you from my bank, then I will arrange for a pick up after." Or something ki d of like this. Will not call or answer. Hope thy his helps. MarkJ What I understand is they want is you to deposit the check which is more thy han you asked for. The remainder of it goes to some bogus account to cover shipping. They then cancel check and you are left responsible for the amount you put in the bogus account.

I have a 351-c block and pistons for sale. I have had 5 responses exactly like these in the first week, all texts from different area codes. I told them all to deliver cash to here and then we'll talk. Never any questions about the parts....Who would not ask questions? Also slightly off on the wording making it seem that English is not their first language. This sucks.... Kaase

Default Heads, intake and etc.

For those out there that seen the ad that was posted about a set of sb2-2 heads,two intakes and mostly a top end by this guy that went by rashbookyplain out of brampton, ON. The ad # was 184109127.Well let me tell you about my dealing with this guy. Messaged him twice and he got back in touch with me so we made the deal and I paid for shipping also. After a few conversion with him calling and texting I never received a tracking number or a time of when i was to receive these parts that I paid him for in good faith thinking that he was a straight up guy. He also had a crankshaft listed too. If anybody know this guy please ask him to be a man and send my parts or my money back.
Just be aware of people like this.
