Posted a WTB ad, Ravenk contacted me with exactly what I wanted, even sent photos, etc. When asking for another photo, picture of a different pair of binoculars was sent. The timing of the messages has been really sporadic including in the middle of the night. Didn't think too much of it initially but am now pretty sure it is a scam. Can mods please contact me to see if I can delete this message thread? WTB ads seem to be VERY risky right now. Check your accounts-seems they are hacking members accounts and then contacting WTB ads, so the deal appears legit based upon message counts, ratings, etc.

Yeah - WTB ads are very risky. I got burned for a scope on another forum back in March.
Ask for photos with the date and username and also ask to speak on the phone.

These scammers just reach out to WTB ads, never even have the item but rip images from other posts and learn enough about the item to be able to BS you enough on PM. On the phone you will see through their BS and likely hear a distinct accent...
