steven larry is another one just tried to get me tonight

stevelar3321@yahoo.com

shouldn't be dodgy so long as you don't give them the wheels

surprised how many of them there is, i was stoked to have some interest on the rial bullets i have been trying to sell but reply's like this just scream scam ...

Thank you for your response...My name is Steven Larry,I am a pilot and am currently out country at the moment. I am buying the wheels as a gift for my daddy and the price is fine with me.I can only pay through PayPal as I don't have access to my bank account online/internet banking, but I have my bank account attached to my PayPal account and this is why I insisted on paying you through PayPal. So please get back to me with your PayPal invoice or PayPal email address,phone number and your name.... so I can proceed with the payment and after I have made the payment, I have a pick up agent that will come around for pick up of the item from your location.Hope to read from you with the requested payment details asap...

if they want to collect from you, claim to be in the army, pilots etc (anything un traceable) and don't haggle then you can pretty much be sure its a scam :lol:

im guessing this is the same person trying it on with alot of people. I've had a so called Gena Mills trying to buy mine with the same trick but im not falling for it. theres one simple rule everyone should know and its that paypal do not do any business with the western union FACT! and always check you're actual paypal account as you will notified in there if you need to take any actions.

such a shame there is scum on here like that. just be careful guys n gals

Looks like almost all of those letters have one thing in common - they're buying wheels FOR SOMEONE as a GIFT :lol:
Jeez, there's a lot of "santa clauses" in wheel market :lol: :mrgreen:

Just to let you all know, I got an email about the wheels I am selling from adjames33412@rocketmail.com. Presume if he's the scammer it's best to let you know he's still going about...

Hello, I just came across your AD and I'll like to know the following questions regarding the wheels...

Q#1. How long have you owned them?

Q#2. Why are you selling them?

Q#3. How much is the lowest price you would take for them?

Q#4. Do you accept PayPal as a mode of payment?

I'll like to have the response to these questions as soon as possible...

Thank you, Regards

Trenton Harper


Thank you for your response, I am an oceanographer and I am currently on sea at the moment. I am buying the wheels as a surprise gift for my son because his birthday is close. He won't know anything about it until it gets delivered to him on his birthday. I can only pay through PayPal as I don't have access to my bank account online/internet banking, but I have my bank account attached to my PayPal account and this is why I insisted on paying you through PayPal. So please get back to me with your PayPal email address so I can proceed with the payment and after I have made the payment, I have a pick up agent that will come around for verification and to pick it up.
Thank You, Regards
