be wary of "Lights"
« on: December 18, 2011, 06:14:29 PM »
OK, so in my BST i said that I wanted a Ti walker. "Lights" PM'd me and said this:
Got a MIB Ti Walker  O0 Offer me a price  :angel:

he showed me pics and it seemed legit. i then pm'd him and said that i would be able to pay 200 dollars by monday. he then said:
Oh, i'll wait till monday so u can pay me 200$ shipped for it  :angel: Let me know asap

i was surprised that he would accept 200 dollars for a MIB Ti walker, but didn't think anything of it. but, i told him that i'd want him to ship it first, then i would pay, he only had 1 feedback and i have 9. here is his reply:
Yeah i know it but i'm quite afraid. But we can meet up. Where r u located ? Well, i'm a yoyo collector so i often buy yoyos :d but now i'm looking for some cash for my girlfriend's gift so i must sell one but u can trust me  :angel:

i wanted him to have the money for that gift, so i offered to send him however much he needed for his gift, he ships, then i send the rest. BUT WAIT. i looked more extensively at his profile. here's what i discovered:
ok, your profile looks a bit fishy. first of all, you have no posts, yet you have made a trade. secondly, the person who you supposedly made a trade with has no feedback from you. thirdly, the person who left you feedback also has no posts. and lastly, that person gave you feedback within 3 minutes of registering. i take back what i said before, send me the ti walker, and once i receive it, i'll send the money.

he hasn't responded, and i doubt he will.

i'm not saying that i know he's a scammer, he just seems fishy. he is a polite guy, and seems nice. just be wary of him and make sure you know for sure that you will not be scammed.
Everyone wants a VsNewton, or a CLYW Avalanche, or a platinum-coated, diamond-encrusted titanium with a dragon-blood lubricated leprechaun-bone bearing.

Lights is no longer with us. Thanks for the heads up!
Finger Lakes Yoyo Club in Ithaca, NY - PM me for details.
At least 15% of what I say is true.

Ahhh. I was just about to PM some mods about this.

He offered me a mint Chief + a mint Ti Walker for $200...

How much can u pay ? Is 200$ sound OK for both ? Let me know asap

He also asked if we could meet up (no doubt a sex predator :-P).

Just yesterday he said he said he "has some trouble with his account", messaging me from another username: 'noonedaretoplayyoyo'.

Definitely seems fishy, but I don't want to make any accusations.
