Exclamation Buying parts or getting scammed?

Hey members
I want to take a minute to remind you that we have a set of guide lines for selling parts because some folks sign up and become members only to scam you. We can’t stop anyone from buying items (nor are we responsible for the sales) but we can limit, in some way, the ease in which scammers “scam”. Look for a low post count; if someone has “2” post just consider that you may lose your money. I’m not saying you will be scammed but the chances are far greater from a member who has zero reputation. Even “Pay-Pal” isn’t fool proof.

Just remember the old sayings,
"There's a sucker born every minute" - PT Barnum
"A fool and his money are soon parted." - A phrase that originated by Thomas Tusser

We all work hard for our money (I think) so be cautious of really good deals.

Not to get technical, but there's no proof Barnum ever said that...
