Description:

Just want to give everyone on here a heads up. Myself along with many others on here post ads include their phone numbers. Just to make it easier for communication since RCU makes it so difficult after it redid it's webpage a few years back. I had individual contact me, sent me "official" looking business check. Check was for greater the amount than my asking price. First red flag. Went to back and they confirmed it was a fake check. Then individual wanted me to sent excess amount via walmar2walmart wire transfer for shipper. Another red flag.
phone numbers they were using (which may be disposables)
678 682-2649
678 890-2998
251 289-9607

Stay safe out there guys. And lets look out for our fellow modelers
