Hi Guys,

I thought I would give everyone a heads up on 2 new members here on the forums who direct messaged me for some parts I was looking for.
I posted a WTB thread about a 81 MK1 Engine Wiring Harness...
Both people told me to contact an email address which I did.

FYI:

-"mramosmottor" messaged me and told me to contact email address:[email protected]
The person at this email address spoke/communicated with broken English and was very pushy. We communicated via text briefly when this person pressured me into "registering" for a parts lookup program of some sort before he could ship or even get me info on the part I was after. This program was $49.95 or something funny.
Deleted his text and said pass obviously.

A couple weeks later...
-"jacksonmeal" messaged me and told me to contact email: [email protected]
I did that and was promised exactly what I wanted. When I requested photos of the harness I was sent 2 fuzzy pictures of a newer looking engine wiring harness. When I said can you confirm what car it is coming out of (wanting a pic of the MK1 to verify it was a 81 5ME), I was sent a picture of what looked to be a MG or small European car. I was given a price of $125 shipped via UPS to Canada.

Both of these users have recently joined this forum. I thought I would share my experience and maybe help track this. Must be a new attempt at scamming people on various forums.

-J.
