Be Careful About "Sam"

I posted a want to buy a Benchmade 4x and he PMd me saying he had one mint w/ box sheath and papers for $300 and told me to e-mail him. It made me suspicious that he did not have any years flipping and had no posts. I e-mailed him and his English was extremely sloppy. When I asked him for his address he said that PayPal "safes" time and that he didn't want a "cheque" which I'm pretty sure is how foreign people spell it. So I asked him where he was and he said Ohio. It was weird that he had a very American name and was in Ohio but spelled like that. I'm not 100% sure that he was scamming or in a foreign country but just to be safe. Be careful with him.

I wouldn't. I just checked the imageshack link he gave me for the pictures and they're not there anymore :? Better safe than sorry.

Re: Be Careful About "Sam"

Yeah he messaged me too:

Sam (the scammer) wrote:I have one for sale have any interest to get one? ;)


Wheelman185 wrote:Pics with your name on a piece of paper in them? Does it have box and papers? How much?


Sam (the scammer) wrote:325$ negotiateable yes it comes with box,sheath and papers.


Wheelman185 wrote:Well send me some pictures with your name on a piece of paper next to them and we'll talk further. There's already some posts about you potentially being shady so, yeah I'm going to need every verification in the book since you really aren't an active member.

You do all that, and we'll talk money, unless you're willing to send the product first. :P :lol:
