SCAM PSA: User T4RunnerG

Just a heads up, this user joined not too long ago and is contacting old sales/wtb threads and approaching posters. It felt off to begin with and after digging around a bit, I was able to find other forums etc confirming that they are out to try and get money out of posters/buyers.

Yes, this scammer sent me a PM regarding a WTB I've got up in the last week, wants you to email directly, red flag.
Might want to add this persons handle/email address to the seller/buyer feedback forum.

Did you guys ever get what you ordered? I'm pretty sure I may have got ripped off also from this guy. Do you have any contact info for him?
Thanks

From the way their posts were written, I donít think they ordered anything from him or sent him any money.

Turns out The Paypal account for this account is in Kenya and is 100% a scam and the phone number connected to it is a google number.

Moderators can you please turn off this account!
