Anthony J Finn of Bellwood Illinois has scammed at least 3 people on Racing Junk recently. He posted pictures of other ads on Racing Junk with his address and phone number. He becomes a new member every tine he posts an ad. So far he has posted a new carb for $400, a new nitrous controller for $350, and a new fuel pump for $200. No one has received their parts yet. He talks to you on the phone, by email and texts until he has your money then blocks you.

Scorp could use your advise. I am a seller and I am retiring soon moving South
to be closer to my ageing in laws.

I have several adds posted and have been a member for many years. I don't post my address
for fear that dishonest people may use that information. But want honest buyers to trust me.

How do I protect myself and gain the buyers trust.

Thanks,
Mike

I posted my first ad today and within ten minutes I had someone texting me wanting a bunch of personal information. The number is 386 742 3246. I sure hope this isn't normal!

Probably not normal. I post ads on Racing Junk regularly and only a few are questionable. If the specific item you post is not mentioned in the inquiry, I just ignore it. If the person really wants it they will call you if they don't get a response back to their written inquiry. Any contact that feels the least bit fishy, just ignore. Do not respond. There are enough legit buyers out there to sell to without giving out any info you don't feel comfortable with putting out there for a scammer to use against you.

I have sold over 100 items on Racing Junk and it is still the best place I have found to buy and sell on.

Got hit with three of them within the first 24hrs of our ad being up. Definitely seller beware.
