Exclamation Scammer alert - user "00o00"

Guys beware of the user named "00o00", his email is [email protected] and he calls himself David Shelley (which obviously a fake name). He replied to my WTB post directly via email saying that he has what I'm looking for (it's GiPro) and asked to contact him via email:

> Let me know via email if you still need the GiPro w/ATRE.
> [email protected]

After we have exchanges a few emails and agreed on the prices I've asked him for his PayPal email to pay for the GiPro I've got this email:

> Yes, i could do $xx shipped. My PayPal is currently dormant at the moment so I will take payment via Money gram.

When I told him that I do PayPal only he went silent and never replied. A quich search on this forum and on internet uncovered:
1. This used has 0 posts.
2. His created account is like 5 days old.
3. The same user tried scam somebody using the same schema with WTB/Moneygram on two other forums: http://planetminis.com/forums/klx110...110-motor.html and http://www.celicasupra.com/forums/sh...m!!!!&p=816639.

Beware of this guy, he is a total fraud. The problem is that he sounds legit via email up to the point when you are about to make a payment. He's probably an American as his english is good (not Nigerian or Indian "dialect") and he sounds like he knows what he's talking about technically.

I received the same email for mirrors. Thought he might just be a new guy with not posts so I told him to get his post count up and we would talk.
