Chris46h responded to my wanted ad.

"Peter in Ohio has it for sale. You can reach him through petercrebassa3@gmail.com . I bought a part from him and he mentioned he also had it for sale. You can thank me later!"

I contacted petercrebessa and received this reply.

"Hello Jan,
Thanks for writing, apologies for the delay in response. I got a chance to check my email. I have for sale the Answer mtb riser bars in excellent condition. 25.4mm clamp diameter, 720mm wide, 30mm rise in new condition. Willing to let go for some extra cash. It came off my Answer Protaper AM circa 2006. I will take a $90(shipped).I am in Ohio and will ship via UPS. The asking price includes shipping and will take payment via PayPal gift payment .
What's your complete shipping address? Let me know if we have a deal .
Thanks,
Peter"

These were the warning signs for me:
1) Paypal Gift;
2) Bad grammar, punctuation and spelling.

Later I discovered that Chris46h joined the forum one hour before responding to my ad.

I too had a message from Josephine 2 re: my wanted ad, fortunately I didn't contact the email address I was sent.

Hence why this post caught my interest..

Naughty naughty, very naughty... :x

Aye - me neither as it didn't seem plausible anyone had just happened to mention they had all the items I was after. In Jan's case grammar isn't bad & requested as gift or F&F not unusual with genuine sellers. The email I was asked to contact had zero google results. Looks like a pretty targeted scam campaign on the RB membership.

Not sure if I made it clear, but 'seller' is in USA.

How do I have Chris46h added to banned / spammer lists?
