Hello, I am trying to buy a table piece for my 72 bus. I posted an ad for one here. I get a response from a person who says they are

splitzbysuzy

Is this legit? Can someone help me out in finding if it is?

Thanks,
Jackspratt

Thanks for the heads up.
I took a look and someone emailed you with a message that just said:
Hi there

It was from John at [email protected]

This person is a scammer and has been banned.

I don't see anything that says splitzbysuzy in their email contact through the site - where did that come from?

You said they contacted you after that from [email protected]

[email protected] is 100% a scammer.

I even set up a specific warning thread here as they are all over the place right now:
https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=732939

Ignore any further contact from this person and do not send them any money
