      To the Guests who have decided to register for Membership. PLEASE read Terms of Service, not just checking it off. This is covered there: Add more info than just "hunting" or "Upland hunting" or "birds" or "outdoors" or similar nebulous terms in the required INTERESTS field. Despite this Boards strong spam filtering function, some Spam registrations do sneak through. I need an inkling that you are a human being not a Spam Bot tagging onto key words. Also please do not use a business name as your User Name. Thank you.

Latest scam heads up

Recommended Posts

Auto-5

I listed my late wife’s car on Craigslist and immediately got a  message from a fellow claiming interest in it. He was a bit evasive but asked if I could run a background on vinncheck and send it to a email address. An antenna went up as he called  at 11:00 at night and when I called his number no answer and later got a text that he couldn’t talk but preferred to deal via text. He said he had a lot of questions so I said to text them to me and I would answer them . He then only asked the price though it was clearly in the ad.  He  then popped the request for the car check .A quick search indicates that there is a series of scams where these companies try to generate business with this ploy and ding you $39.95 when you contact them. Just doesn’t feel right the way it’s coming down. I think I’ll offer to run it via Carfaxor AutoCheck and see his reaction

I hate craig's list scams.  I now only list a phone number and specify no texting or email contact and that I will only deal with people that call me and talk to me.
