Stay vigilant, 2 scam threads were deleted, member's account was hacked. If a sale seems to good to be true it probably is. Equinox 800 for $350 or CTX3030 for $400 is a sign that something isn't right.

The IPs for threads were from France.

Thanks TH. Fortunately I have no worries for money. A Nigerian prince has a fortune waiting for me to collect.

GREAT NEWS! I just sent the prince $10,000 to free up the money through customs. I should have $33,000,000 in my bank account within 3 days!! I am over the moon!!!

Seriously, some poor old guy living here in my county, sent some scammers $10,000 for an RV that they were going to ship to him. Can you believe that? And after a couple of weeks of waiting and calling to get his RV, he went to police. No RV. No money. Poor guy. Too good to be true then it is not true.

The 800 for $350 AD seemed too cheap, was waiting for the out of warranty + it drowned reason.
Was the hack on the same member or separate ?

That was me that someone hacked. I was out of town for two days at the Treasure Hunters Cookout. When I got home I saw someone trying to sell the Equinox and the CTX using my account. I immediately notified the buyer that it was a scam. I notified Treasure_Hunter and then changed my password. I hope that helped. I have no idea how they hacked my account.

Salvor, you're good, I know you are trustworthy, once I saw the IPs were from France I deleted the threads and sent you PM to be sure.
