I posted a wtb and was contacted by zipweight8534.. he's clearly a scammer considering he changed the background on a Google image. His number is (702) 209-0014 and if you Google this number he pops up on a scam post on this forum under a different name back in September.

Here's the other scam post from Sept.


He's gone now, but he might come back under a new username so be careful!

I had a guy try to scam me on a Stainless Ruger Ranch Rifle with factory folding stock. He said he had a second party doing his financials and they messed up and sent mt a check for 3900 instead of 1850+ 75.00 shipping and asked me to return 2000.00 overpayment. Relisted the rifle on a local site and got ythe same worded message from different email both said they were in Texas

Supposedly he was in Silver Spring Maryland but his telephone number started with 702 which is in Nevada. 240 and 301 are the Silver Spring codes. I was told many years ago, if it seems too good to pass up... pass it up.

Things like area codes and IP addresses are no longer a clue where somebody actually lives or works.
What used to be a "land line" can now be a cell number.
Cell numbers can go with you even if you move across country.
Same ( or similar ) with ISPs, especially VPNs.

BUT, it's still something to check just in case. A piece of the puzzle.
