Default Marketplace scammer

Is there somewhere to report a scammer? I have an ad in the market place and have a scammer messaging me. They're offering to send a money order or certified check and arrange to have it picked up if I'll just send them my info. I just didn't want someone else that doesn't know better to fall for it. The scammers username is EARLANDCO, Here's their profile http://www.rcuniverse.com/market/mem...m?memid=646802

He contacted and wanted to buy a K&B 3.5 lower I have for sale. I reported him to JWN through a PM. Hope they ban him. I hate scammers.

I'm in the process of writing trying the administrator to report the same BS. It is an old scam and I'm surprised that someone is still dumb enough to try it..

It says in his profile that his last activity was 2/8/2017,but my add wasn't placed till 2 /16/2017 so he's been on here without it showing up.

Please send me either a PM with full details, including the ad #, or use the Report Ad to Moderator link present in your ad so we can review the activity in question.

That account has been fully banned from the site. Ignore any emails you may receive from them.
