Default What the hell is going on here

I have been looking for a DX18 for awhile. I have come on here a couple of times and found one and replied to who I thought was the owner of said DX18. When we start talking his original screen name has changed from what it originally was on the ad to the name Doxtaree. Can someone tell me what the hell is going on.

It's a well established scam already going on at rcgroups for months now. What you have here is a scammer pretending to be your seller and he'll try to get you to pay him with an unsecured payment method.
Some who suffer from this scam who don't pay close attention, truly believe the genuine seller ripped them off. Never post personal info on a forum, no email addresses, phone numbers, or other personal details, and
stick to goods and services PayPal with credit card funds only, so you have recourse if you do get cheated or scammed.

NEVER reply in a direct open post to the add.

ALWAYS reply in a PM ( private message) to the seller, that only he can see.
