    Exclamation Scammed by member named “BigPP”

    Long story short I was scammed out of $115 by a member named BigPP. I didn’t do my due diligence and sent the money without looking into his account. Most all of the communication was done through text message. I was contacted by another member this morning (will not mention name) inquiring about the feedback I left BigPP as it appears he has gotten scammed as well.

    Just a reminder:
    Check members profile including feedback and post count/join date.


    Lessons learned:
    Don’t do all your negotiating via text message.
    Discrete PayPal is probably the way to go from now on (3% more is better than 100% lost)

    Please avoid this member. Don’t make the same mistake as me!

    Quinn i was recently contacted by a member here and BigPP name came up as well. Just a reminder to everyone here WTB ads attract scammers big time. And always verify the pictures sent to you (Google Images, TinyEYE).
    Love you Pop. F*ck Cancer.

    I know, right. He's telling right up front he's a dick.

    I had the same member contact me about my WTB ad. He was quick to want to take it to text messages. I never followed up with him.

    Literally posted a wtb add about 10 minutes ago, was contacted by bigpp, first message he sent was send me your number to get details. Someone needs to get this guy off the forum.

    Send me that info, did he give you a cell number, PayPal address or an email?

    By the way, he's now permanently banned. I do recall temp-banning that dude for general asshattery a year or so ago, I should have made it permanent then.

    Anybody else with info on him, please forward to me.
