Hello Everyone,

I posted on the forum that I needed to buy a windshield and I was contacted by email by member name: scobbydoo:

Douglas Bland 

 8905 Evergreen Avenue  #334 Indianapolis IN46240

 scobbydoo069@gmail.com 

+1 (812) 250-9231


He sent me pics and dimensions of the windshield and was very pushy on closing the deal. After sending him the money on Zelle, he disappeared and is no longer answering my email or phone calls. Confused


Guys, be careful on all your transactions with this guy. Angry


Regards,


Bilal

I think the key here is that he has never posted here before and only recently joined. Another thing is that he only PM'd you and lives at a senior independent living facility -all to me red flags

Sorry to hear.  Especially from this site.  It's amazing the lengths a criminal scammer will go to.  Getting pictures and dimensions from a '94 windshield would take more effort than I would have thought one would take.

This is astonishing!  Only on the internet does a Nigerian get duped by a resident in a senior living home! I think that's backwards...  The info in your profile doesn't really help us understand. 

I hope you can find a windshield - those are tough to come by - Check FB.

Some of those senior living places cost big bucks.

The poor old guy is probably doing whatever he has to do to pay the bill every month

Or maybe some of those "senior women" he's chasing have expensive taste in things  Wink

It has happened to me as well here on this site. Gary S is correct in saying watch out for new members posting items for sale. I was fortune enough to get my money when the transaction didn’t seem just right.
