Default Caught a scammer in the act.

ive been inactive for some time, just recently gaining my interest back into my rc's, so i posted a few ads to sell some older cars, and some want ads to get the trucks im looking for, well i received an email today from someone:

"The following was sent to you through RC Universe:

Good day please to let you know i still have the aforementioned item readily available for sale. Please drop me a note if you still want to deal.

Regards, Jeffery Johnson"

im not sure if something has changed since the last time i used the market place or not, but im pretty sure you cant direct email other members here. I should also mention nothing was posted to the ad about this as well. I have the persons email as well as the "place" he wanted a money gram sent to because his PayPal is "dormant". if an admin wants to contact me, i will gladly forward all the information i have to you. its just been so long since ive been here, i dont know who to contact anymore.

They can't email directly from the ad, but they can from your profile, I see you do have that feature enabled, at least I see the icon
