Got to say he's a trier, absolutely relentless, as soon as he's banned, off he goes again.
I know he's on several of the Porsche Forums, and probably every other car make Forum too.
The sad prat must sit in a room all day visiting all Forums, registering usernames and hoping for a few quid from the vulnerable.

Hope you're reading this you thieving, vile piece of s*it.
You should be ashamed of yourself

Same guy, new BB name! This time it is "alfah", and now he has 750 Sprint parts. I knew it was a scam before I even searched his name here. He has "0" as his number of posts on the BB. Big red flag!

Here is the PM sent to me:

Working to see of there's anything that can be done from the admin side. In the meantime, might I suggest that anyone with a parts wanted ad, flag mckellens75@gmail.com as spam or junk in your email program.

Ian by now has become famous! the person most of all time banned, the banned man !!

the Targa Florio was not an easy race: it was love, insanity, irrationality, talent, dust. Everyone felt involved, the priest of the small village with a photograph of the Vaccarella, old woman who lay the sheet to the window of the feast to honor the pilots .... WAS THE TARGA FLORIO ....[FONT="<font><font>Times New Roman</font></font>"][I][/I][/FONT]

Part of the problem is that he does not always post things. He responded to a parts wanted ad and sent a PM. He had a post number of zero.

He contacted me too about Shankle Springs. I reported him to Papajam and I think that he has been banned.
