Beware of new users who have "just what you are looking for"

We are starting to see a rash of new users who immediately spam people with notes that they have the exact cue they are looking for.

If someone with no iTrader feedback offers you a deal that sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Please report the user and we will look into it immediately.

Think I had a scammer that started yesterday. Recce James phone number 682-800-3182. I placed a ad in the Wanted Forum looking for Eddie Laube Shafts. He contacted me and showed me a photo trying to sell the whole cue. When I heard the price and saw the picture of a pristine cue I thought something was up. Then I said I only wanted the shaft and he immediately agreed and then agreed to my price. He wanted payment to zelle. I said I would use paypal, then he wanted F&F. When I said no he asked for money just to ship and then I said no again. He said he was located in Texas. When I looked at his AZ status I saw that he joined the day before, it all added up to the scam alert on a too good to be true deal.

That will be $1970 shipped


I accept, zelle, cash app or bank transfer
So let me know your means of payment so we can proceed I text your number
but no feedback yet you can shot a
out it

Above is word for word his reply to me
He can't answer pertinent questions about the lathe, just gives me a price and tells me to send money .

His info states he just joined this site Friday11/26/21
Also, he was quick to divert the conversation to email and text, i'm guessing so others here don't see.
He could be legit, but that price looks tgtbt and from his replies, he has no clue about the lathe

cosmo cues

a member here tried to scam me saying he had a Harry Richards cue
He directed me to email. When i requested more pics, he told me his uncle had the cue, but he tried to get me to send him $993 and he would ship the cue.
After requesting more pics and specs, he ended our communication. I truly believe he was trying to scam me

This michel eddy maples account here is a scammer

he finally told me to send him the shipping then i could send him the money for the lathe once i saw the tracking what a joke
 
That guy robbed me for 150$ right before Christmas and it hurt. I've made so many purchases here that I got comftorble. The pictures he sent me of the cue were of a cue that another member sold

Same thing happen to me a few days ago, I am looking for a Mason case, he text me and said he a nice one, I asked for photos he texted me a couple, the price was great, $321, he wanted to do a Zelle, I told him I only do paypal, he only wanted f or f, I even said I would pay the extra 4% but he only would do f or f. His area code was (706) said he lived in Augusta Ga. and did not speak very good English at all. Last thing he said was for me to send him $50 and he would ship the case and I could pay him later. This whole deal sound fishey.....

Just had a guy named Chris James 682 800 3182 saying he had a Mason case, another scam I expect since he has the same phone number that is in the first post.
