Default Scammer alert, scammer alert

I RECENTLY POSTED A WANTED AD FOR A CARL GOLDBERG MODEL 12 MONSTER ARF. I GOT A RESPONSE FROM THIS EMAIL ADDRESS: SPROSSENMBSMETALS@GMAIL.COM, AND THE EMAIL ENDED WITH "SCOTT PROSSEN". I GOGGLED SCOTT PROSSEN METALS, AND SPOKE WITH SCOTT MYSELF THIS MORNING. HE DID NOT ANSWER MY AD IN RC UNIVERSE. IF YOU GET A RESPONSE TO AN FROM THE EMAIL ADDRESS I LISTED, HE IS A SCAMMER.

I know Scott Prossen personally, have met and flown RC with him many times over the last 7 years in Florida.
He is NOT a scammer.
I suspect his e-mail may have been hacked.

And its strange he has not replied here to defend himself.

Before getting into speculations it would be nice to hear both sides of the story.
