Hi, this is actually my first post on thesamba. I have a WTB ad up for a PYHI deck plate/access cover.

On 3/5/21 I received a text message from "John" from area code (769) 206-6791. "John" stated that he had a PYHI deck plate to sell me. I asked him to send me pictures and price - still waiting. But I'm glad I Googled his phone number because that brought up this post.

Unfortunately, I was duped by another individual "Larry" from (720) 710-4662 who on October 27, 2020, also told me he had a PYHI deck plate to sell me. "Larry" also used the number (510) 369-2469 so folks should be aware of this number also.

I sent him $100.00 through PayPal but of course never got the plate. He actually contacted me again using the same number and the crackhead tried to sell me another fictional deck plate.

I'm glad I found this post before I fell prey to "John". I'm leaving this post so no one falls prey to either "Larry" or "John.

Take care my friends. Mark

Received text today 719 224 2387 in regards to an old ad I had placed.
Googled the number and it instantly showed up on Everett's text scam list.
Thank you TheSamba for maintaining this list.
