    Default Possible Scammer look out. berryviles

    I was notified by pm in-box by a new member berryviles about a rear bumper I'm looking for my 69 GS400. It was in Parts wanted section. He contacted me by PM and he said he had the part I was looking for. He gave a email address asking what I was looking for? Which was weird because the add stated what I was looking for. I said it was a bumper for my 69 like the add said. He returned my email posting some crappy shots of a 69 rear bumper and said his paypal was down and money sent to a MoneyGram account. The pictures were from a 69 skylark convertible for sale at heartland motors website. Beware of any contact with this person. I could be wrong but it was his first post. I will openly apologize if I'm wrong but things just don't add up.

    Thanks guys I hate to see anyone get burned. Everyone I've dealt with on this website has been great and I'd like to keep it that way for everyone else the best I can. Thanks

    Same guy contacted me about a wtb 1966 transmission that I posted . He responded that he a great one - " super tubing with 3.42 gear" . Obviously doesn't know the difference between a rear end and a transmission. Said his PayPal account was not up and running yet- yeh right . Asked him where he lived and he said Chicago so I told him I would come look at it personally and bring cash - surprisingly he hasn't responded . Goes by the the name Tony Berry with same email address as above posts - complete scammer - Beware !!

    Same guy but when I asked where he was located he left that detail out. My drivers son is a FBI agent. I gave him his name Tony Berry and the email address he supplied. Hopefully they may do something about it or give me some info. I'd like to cut his nuts off so he can call himself Halle Berry or Berryless.
