Thanks for all the input.

A displayed post count is an intrinsic of the Forum template. Its purpose is to simply add credibility to respondents, indicating a veteran forum status.
Unlike other forums, there is no extra benefit to having an elevated post count here.

Some seem to think it is a negative motivator... so we'll see if it can be blanked out

Interesting twist about these replies is the reference to an actual member. After looking, hockeylife has not been active since 2022. I assume he has no part in this.


That is absolutely correct. It's clear his user name was harvested, and coupled with the scammer's email address.

SCAM ALERT - Notice for ALL members

We have been aware of a particular SCAM that has been prevalent on enthusiast forums and Facebook groups,
mostly in areas for enthusiasts with requests for "Wanted to Buy."

I've recently been made aware of these potential SCAMS occurring on our forum several times in the past few weeks.

The way this game works is ---> a poster is contacted about his request for parts, usually through a private message,
and is told to contact another individual who is "known" to have the parts that are wanted.

This friendly "referral" by a "good samaritan" is meant to add credibility to the advice.

The message may look like this" "I recently purchased some items from XXXXX , he's willing to sell..."

The SCAMMER will then give the email of the contact who supposedly has the parts in question.

Also, look for obvious grammar and spelling errors in the message as an additional red flag

NOTE - it appears that the referred email ALWAYS has the format--->a generic first+last name + 3 or 4

We have seen the referred name to be a stranger... OR even the name of another forum member, but with the bogus email address.

This is not a new SCAM, but one that is relatively new to our Forum

BE smart, BE alert

"Trust, but verify"
ALWAYS verify the seller and the actual existence of the parts.
Use Facetime or Video Chat to validate the items
Ask for a "hostage" photo that shows the item and indicates the current date.

Remember, emails with a format "first+last name + 3 or 4" can be a burner, free, throwaway email addresses

and... always report ANY suspicious activity to us!

SAAC Forum Discussion Area / SAAC Sweepstakes - Homestretch
« on: November 20, 2022, 05:37:58 PM »
It’s Thanksgiving week and we’re just two weeks away from the close of our sweepstakes.

Here at SAAC HQ, we’ve got a lot to be thankful for, most of all our passionate community of Shelby enthusiasts. As a way of saying thank you, we’ve got some sweepstakes news to share:

We’ve lowered the minimum needed to award the car to a winner. We desperately want to hand the keys of this incredible car to a fellow enthusiast and watch them burnout into the sunset.

For these last few days, we’re offering a special 35% bonus ticket offer to our loyal enthusiast community. This is the highest bonus we’ve ever offered.

One more thing, enjoy this short video from SAAC’s very own Melissa…Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I'm disappointed that I had to learn that SAAC 48 is at Pitt Race July 13-15, 2023 from a Team Shelby Facebook page.

Not sure if I am going to be able to make it.

It was posted here and on SAAC HQ Facebook.

Others, such as Team Shelby, repeated the news
