I put a wanted advert on the BMFA Classifieds to obtain spare parts for my MXS-R, however I couldn't believe that for a second time somebody would send me my own photo's telling me it was theirs to sell (same thing happened in Feb 2016).

Scammer Fail

I called Graham Goodman on his mobile: 07520 624166 and was amazed he answered, unfortunately the signal was too bad to hold a conversation. He was well spoken with a air of confident maturity about him, can't think why he hasn't text me back!

It's a cautionary tale, buyers and sellers beware!
The BMFA does warn about the dangers of including email addresses and telephone numbers in your listings.

I would like to proved wrong about this, but something tells me otherwise.

I wouldn't use the BMFA classifieds. So far it's been a total waste of time. Was going to buy a crashed Sbach off someone a while back, then he said he sold it to someone else, then got a spammer trying to scam me, then another scammer saying he had an item for sale.

Best to use ebay, at least you have buyer protection.

Scammers often use obvious ploys deliberately. This is because they are trying to target vulnerable people. If for some reason you can not spot the scam then you are the type of person they are looking for. You are an easy target.
