    Exclamation ALERT: User m7c6c3 is a scammer, beware

    The user m7c6c3 joined the forum only about a week ago. Today he replied to one of my WTB threads, saying:

    "This seller is not always active on the forum, but you can reach him at... adress@domain.com"

    He has also commented this same thing on at least one other post, apparently trying to lure people off-site. Okay, weird, but I'll bite. I did send an email to this address, and got a very quick reply, saying that they had exactly what I was looking for... a rare item that they were letting go for $50 shipped, which was a steal. I asked the size, they said L. I said this was too large, and how convenient, they reply:

    "I can refer you to one of my friend who have medium size for sell if you are interested.lmk... otherAddress@domain.com"

    Ok sure, this guy's friend also has the rare item that I'm looking for... I emailed this second person, they also respond immediately. What a coincidence, they have it in M, $56 shipped. To top it off, the scammer accidentally then sent me the same exact message from both adress@domain.com and otheraddress@domain.com, LOL:

    "Ohh ok
    I have the medium size available for sale at $56 shipped to anywhere in the state .where are you located ?"

    Mods, ban this guy. Luckily he's really dumb and is bad at scamming, so hopefully no one else has been falling for it. I see in his post history he's still trying to do business.

    watch out with WTB itís a super easy way to get scammed since they can claim they have whatever item and send found internet pics. it doesnít usually happen around here though.

    Who'd have thought someone with the username "m7c6c3" would be a scammer/bot...

    Yes, and I'm not trying to sell anything. I joined in a frenzy because I saw someone selling a hardshell that I was salivating over, else I wouldn't even have an account.

    Bruh, I'm a real person. Go ahead and look at my minimal postings, none of them are trying to sell anything. You can even find my name on mountain project and enjoy all my embarrassing posts there.

    Jeez man! Gear is the doorway to sport for a lot of people, and that's perfectly okay. I wouldn't be trying to get a kit together if I didn't hope to get out there with y'all. By "wouldn't have made an account" I meant "wouldn't know about this forum".

    You don’t fucking get it. Gear Swap is NOT a flea market for outdoor gear. It’s a way for maggots who contribute to this little corner of the interwebs to exchange gear among people we can trust

    You pendejos who just want in here to buy/sell gear can go fuck yourselves.
    Or eat a bag of dicks if you ski at Arapaho Basin

    Dear Friend: Welcome. Thanks for the heads-up on the scammer. Ignore the saltiness and stick around. When you have some gear to pass along post it up at a great price and pay it forward.

    You guys sure spend a lot of time here on the "interwebs", maybe some time outside would help.
