    WTB: Banyan Bridge

    Yes, I know...so does everyone else. Thought I would give it a try regardless.

    Just a notice to the community, it looks like we're being targeted for fraud so be vigilant. I posted to WTB and received an offer to sell one. User is Williams Russell. It appears to be a fraudulent offer as the image used is not for a Banyan and the image was stolen from a 2007 post on this website (see url below). I've also posted the emails between me and the other user. This is a new user to the forum from what I can tell. I just want to make sure that the community understands that we are currently being watch and there are attempts for fraudulent charges. Not everyone maybe as wary as I am to these issues.

    And yes, I am still looking for a Banyan.

    That HF link doesn't work. Congratulations on not getting suckered! You should be proud of yourself.

    I do wonder how scams like this work. These guys wait to see a WTB post, then create an HF name like Williams Russell just so they can scam you out of, at most, a couple hundred dollars? Very strange.

    Potential scammer has been dealt with. Please return to WTB rules and get back on topic of WTB.

    Still looking? If so you may want to bump it at least once every week. Items that are inactive are subject to being removed from the Market Place area, it allows members to know you are still interested and it will keep the moderators from "pinging" you! (Bumps mean to respond in the post)

    If you are finished with your thread, please follow the links in my signature for instructions on how to close your thread.

    If you are going out of town or have limited/no forum access, please close your thread before you leave. It saves frustrations when members post questions but do not get responses.

    Thanks for your help
