Here's an email I received about a week ago in my search for an exhaust manifold. From a guy, Peter Pietr, supposedly in Crawfordville, IN. The pic he sent of the part was one of many I saw on Google Images. Anybody know him?

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for writing. Great! I have a 1-4 split exhaust manifold for a
1991 Alfa Spider in excellent shape and condition, ready to mount on.
I'm asking $300 and happy to arrange delivery via USPS or Greyhound to
your door step and would acknowledge payment via Money Gram since my
PayPal is still not up and running. What's your complete shipping
address?

Many thanks again and regards,

Peter

Thanks, Jeff Lowden

Hi Jeff,
Peter Pietr was banned on 14 March (please scroll up a couple of posts). Could you please confirm the receive date of the email?
Thanks!

The one I posted was received on March 16. I replied to that one but then read the threads about the scams. I received another one just this morning at 3:39 AM.

He has changed his user name to "allens" with a join date of March 17. He managed to get my email address and sent me one which I foolishly opened. email is [email protected]. Should have checked this thread. Guy should be again blocked from the board. Tim

Here is how he responded to my search for front seats:
Write me to my e-mail and I will get back to you on pricing and pictures. Let me know Asap.

I always pay with a credit card through paypal for my ebay purchases. It gives me a backup if paypal falls through.

SCAM Warning. I got approached by a guy going by John Fishborne. I have a wanted add for GT jr seats. Here is his most recent reply when I asked for his phone number.

Hi Marty,

Apologizes, my phone got damaged after a get together party I and the wife organized over the weekend. As a result it's almost impossible to reach me by phone but best to reach me here for now. Let me know if we still have a deal.

Many thanks again and regards,

John

When this happens, post the individual's BB username and flag the post so the admins can block him. Won't stop the guy but it'll slow him down.
