Just got text from this number today about shipping address. They sent us a text saying they wanted to buy it and that they sent us money via Paypal money never came through. Also they informed us that we need to check in the junk, spam, or bulk file on our email. We contacted Paypal ad found out they faked a Paypal payment confirmation email. Beware the email for the fake Paypal payment confirmation email is [email protected]@mail.com!

just had a run in with the 405-261-9504 James Adams...wanted to buy a carbuerator. I became suspicious when he didn't ask any questions just immediately wanted my zip code for shipping. Then the next morning i rec'd several text from him with very specific instructions on how to do the transaction on top of the 2 emails from paypal saying my funds were on hold until i paid the shipping company through western union. I checked my paypal account only to see nothing pending. So i inquired with pay pal which confirmed my suspicions that it was a scam. I then googled about the shipping company he was going to use only to find the exact same scam pulled on someone else, almost word for word verbatim of what i had just went through. When he texted again asking if i had made the transaction or not, i replied to him telling him i knew he was a scam and to try again. Be cautious becasue it appears he has been lurking on this site for a while now trying to scam us.

I Believe that there is a scam from a [email protected] I have received multiple messages from him and they don't seem correct. Always asking for personal email and asking questions that the ad already addresses, be aware. I am new to this site and don't know how to report this. Thanks

Anytime they ask you to send your email to their GMAIL address it is probably a scam. It seems all scammers use GMAIL to me.
