User "Javiena Means" joined and immediately began sending private messages that he had items for sale that users have posted WTB ads for in Peddler Talk.

It appears to us that this account is a scam user and we advise NOT sending money to this individual.

The account has been deactivated and his private messages removed.

Thanks,
Jeff

It also appears as if Joseph Orlando is the same. I could be wrong, but he is brand new and has zero posts and his message just seems similar to the Nigerian prince who has $5 Million he needs to send to me. In regards to my WTB post it reads:

“Hi,

Emailing about your request. Please contact Dave on daveorl570@gmail.com regarding your request. Fast shipping and trusted. He is located in the USA and can arrange shipping.”

That one has some of the common terms. Also watch for grammar that is off by filling in blanks and “what is your last price?” I think like all of aviation, the Nigerian scammers that work the aviation sites is a very small group. I advertise a lot on line and have had many attempts. I started playing along and leading them on to mail me fake cashiers checks. They usually overnight them then contact me next day. I lead them on to send another to a friends address because I accidentally gave them the wrong address. My record is three checks and the guy finally broke down and tried to make me feel bad because the fake checks cost him $100. each. For some reason I am not approached very often anymore and when I do, it ends when I give them my name and address.

I received a private message yesterday from Joseph Orlando about an ad I placed in the WTB section looking for a GEM for a 4 cylinder twin with turbos. He sent a private message with the same email address as he sent to StewartPearcy (the post above) and wanted me to reply via email to daveorl570@gmail.com

Thank you BT ADMIN for keeping these scammers out of here. My only request and wish is that we could talk these scammers into meeting me and my brothers somewhere because then the rest of the world wouldn’t have to worry about them any longer. Here in Alabama we have our own special way of dealing with these scumbags that try to scam people.

Heads up, we had another one that I just booted and removed all his PMs. Name was Nicholas Ambatzis.

If you received a PM from him and clicked the link we recommend changing your password asap.

Thanks,
Jeff

+1 on thanks for all the behind the scenes work dealing with these folks.

Some months ago, you removed a scammer and deleted all of his PMs, one of which was sitting in my inbox unopened. Now I have a (1) notification on my inbox indicating an unread message, yet there are none. No big deal to me, but if you're really bored one day...

Thanks again!

Found another one: Teresa Guidice

Recommend not buying or dealing with this "person". Deactivated and all PMs from "her" deleted.

Texas & Florida use the same way of dealing with them.

Along the same lines, I read of a guy who sent a telephone directory (remember them?) to the UK with the full declared value of the laptop he was in the process of being scammed out of. Not only did the scammer have to pay shipping, added UK VAT and import duties....
