PSA: Scammer Sending PMs is a free Model Railroad Discussion Forum and photo gallery. We cover all scales and sizes of model railroads. Whether you're a master model railroader or just getting started, you'll find something of interest here.

I received this PM today from new member @loopki98


I did a quick Google search and found that scammers are sending this same message to people on other forums about their classifieds.

I reported the PM to the Mods here. Hopefully they ban this user ASAP before someone falls victim to their scam.

Just an update, the "people" are still sending out spam through the message system. If you get a unsolicited message from somebody that just joined the day they sent a message to you, hawking something, don't respond to them. Please let one of us know about it,
