Default Scam Alert to WTB Threads

I’ve had two PM’s in response to my WTB ad. This is the first one.

”Suzuki SMD 7
From Trenty 03-26-2021 01:46 PM
Hey, my buddy Cheryll want to get rid of his own. If interested, you can reach her at cherylllynmulato@gmail.com

Using “his” and then “her” raised a flag but I thought it could’ve been a simple typo too so I contacted the person. Make a long story short, my suspicion was correct and the pics they sent were stock photos from eBay. They couldn’t even answer what was in the box.

Fast forward a few days and I get this in my PM’s.

“Suzuki SMD 7 and 9
From Robertty Yesterday 07:22 AM
Email Jason in Texas he has a Suzuki SMD 7 and 9 for sale. Here's his email jasonwilly1960@gmail.com

Both accounts have zero activity here so buyer be ware.

I received the same exact message from Trenty on my wtb ad, then another from Blade7. I asked Trenty if people actually fall for his bs scams, no response. There was another thread started on Trenty the other day.

Not to mention only 8 posts and all just basic posts to establish some sort of credibility.

I'm out a couple hundred bucks as well on the Parker forum. Seem to be the same guy hitting up a lot of the boating forums scoping out WTB threads.

Maybe there is a way to restrict the ability to post to this forum, if you do not have a certain amount of post. That would eliminate the new account responding to WTB threads.
