Mods may move this if they desire.

Someone is going around here looking for people to sell new Dell LCDs too. He found my name on here and tried to sell me one. Others have lost a lot of money off of him. Be aware. Full story from a different forum here:

yeah it's true. I was talking about specs of a comp. I'm going to get in the next week or so and "webrat" PM'd me and started asking me questions. I didn't reply. He just made that name for the forums either today or yesterday and told me to email ham at webratt@gmail.com Heres what he JUST wrote me.....

I actually bought parts for two PC's...one I am using now and the
other was for my brother...He ended up buying an APPLE computer/LCD
combo...so now I have some of the parts for his build left...

I have an AMD X2 4400+ CPU in Retail Box
2405FPW Dell 24" Widescreen LCD
BFG 7800GTX nvidia graphics card

All Brand new/sealed in retail packaging...

Was just wondering if you had picked up the items yet for your
build...If you're interested I can send you pics via email....

Its been said, but bears repeating. Do not make purchases via PM. Do not make purchases via forum unless you know the individual and trust him/her.

Do not make un-trackable transactions unless you are comfortable with the considerable risk.

Just my 2 pennies.....If I don't have his IP and a hard address that jives - I don't buy. And if I do, i'm insured at one level or another.

just to let you know i recieved a comparable pm along those same lines from someone named leakytire with an email address of leakytire@gmail.com so this guy isnt legit, stay away from him!! he already got someone! not me, but still its shitty cause that person was all excited about his new build but now thats going to be postponed until he can save up more $$ becuase of this assgoblin

if the scammer is reading this i hope something terrible happens to you
