Unfortunately the scammers have permanently changed the game. I never advertise that I'm looking for a part anymore, I now ask friends to see if they or anyone else they might know have "part X". Unless I know the person I have to get a reference from someone I do know. Failing that if the part is worth the expense I arrange to have someone pick it up in person that I know and trust. Times have changed and so have I.

How about we all come up with a fictitious part wanted (Muffler bearings) and post a wanted ad and see if the scumbag has one. Then we can decide who was the most creative on their fictitious part wanted. Gary

Gary,

I need a left hand threaded skyhook for my car ?  :)

Back in 1988 I sold my black Boss 429. I had a spare complete S engine air cleaner to oil pan including manifolds. Everything original like it was ready to drop in a car. I went looking for a body. Being in Detroit every B9 body in my "First class" Hemmings was sold a day or 2 before I got my copy. I found out NY, Los Angeles and Chicago areas got theirs before Detroit(so much for "first class") so I posted a want ad in Hemmings. Almost got scammed on a body for sale from an inmate in Baton Rouge La. Found out 6 months later when the FBI came knocking on my door(my phone number linked to prison records). The first the G man knew of that type of scam(they were using "we can get your relative out early" scam at the time). The scammer even had a real B9 vin he gave me. This was around 1989. I ended up selling the engine. So while the game has changed there are those POSs out there that don't want to make an honest living. I wish we could hang/shoot them all.

Scammer gets scammed.  This guy has a lot of energy and patience to reel them in and frustrate them.  The anger levels of the scammers is off the scale.

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"
