New text scam by a guy that calls himself “Ofer” and claims he’s from LA California. This guy has stolen the real Ofer’s identity including his drivers license which he will gladly text to you to try to look legit. I have contacted the legit Ofer guy and he’s aware this dirt bag continues to scam people using his name. The # is ‭+1 (424) 245-2787‬.
DO NOT deal with this scammer!

He has been texting a lot of people with wanted ads.

Recently he used photos from this 15-Window that was listed on BAT to try to scam a member with a wanted ad for parts:

Someone reported to me that this guy emailed them pics for their wanted ads but all he did was take the photos from his ad and photoshop the same parts onto a green background.

Example:

If you see any ads like that, please hit "Report" in them immediately.
