Arrow SCAM - ad removed

Scam ad. I re-took control of my account and removed this ad.

Do not respond to this ad. My account has apparently been hijacked. I am and have always been jagsare1 on tht and this is not my ad. I am not in north dakota. Scam alert.

They got me too. Had me selling an Albury 23...and THT kinda insinuated that I "had been hacked" and not THT had been hacked.

The perpetrators changed my hometown and somehow deleted my signature.

I would not even think about using a passcode that works for anything but THT.

Seems to be a lot of scams going on right now on FB Marketplace. 5 different people selling the same Boston whaler for 2k. It’s one of those, I am in the military, send money to eBay insurance and I will ship you the boat.
I just offered them 3k, willing to pay with a gold card.
hope I get the boat. 2k for a 12k whaler is a great deal!

You responded to my WTB ad and said you were in ND. Was that you or the scammer?

Whoa... crazy. THis means you can't even trust the "posts" and "likes" in someone's profile. Eeeek! Glad you got it back... would've sucked to have to start over.

Scammer. I live in Florida. They gained access to my account and changed my location to ND. I have re-taken control, changed my passwords and changed the information back to North Florida. FB is about 98% nothing but scams and misinformation.

I was getting PM's with information that made no sense. After the 3rd or 4th PM that didn't make sense, I searched for "my" last thread that I started.....and that wasn't me. I am hoping no one fell for whatever was going in using my name. I think obviously they are trying to get your CC or cash for items that are not really for sale.

What would have sucked more is if someone bought something because they trusted my name and got scammed. The fake thread went up sometime yesterday so hopefully I caught it quick.

Crazy. That was probably the most legit private message I have ever seen. Knew a lot about the lenco trim tab actuations. Legit pictures and everything.

I'm sorry, I hope you didn't send any money.

Whoa! I saw that Albury and thought ND for $36k that’s interesting. Then I saw Rick was the seller and I know he’s n of Tampa. I was scratching my head like WTF?? Then the Albury ad disappeared.
