Whats the best way to alert members of likely scammers advertising/phishing on this site? Currently advertised, $2500 LOTR located in Los Angeles, CA but actually in Delaware.
thanks and beware.

Well, just because he has a 302 area code doesn't mean he isn't actually in LA. I still have my Alaska cell phone number but live in Kansas. I am military and move too much to keep changing numbers.

I would ask for a lot of pics, particularly a pic of the guy holding an LA newspaper from that day. If anything seemed funny, I would bail. Such as the $2500 price.

Must suck moving your collection all the time.

The name he signs his email cannot be found anywhere in the US. I am passing.

It does. I do all the packing on them. I tell the movers to bring me 3 blankets per machine and cut up the boxes they provide, then shrink wrap them. I warn them there are 8 things in this house which will cause me to go postal if they get damaged and then watch them like a hawk. Been fine so far.

Hey there! Got a moment?
