I received a PM on a wanted ad on the classifieds today from member wend555.

You can try Gene Morgan,he has a jno brown carbide generator hardware he wants to part with.Here's his email Genem365 @gmail.com
Goodluck...

The actual email is genem365@gmail.com and his phone number is 5413578718 / (541)357-8718.
I emailed this person and he had a single photo and communication was fairly odd. When I texted, communication was again odd. He couldn't get more photos because he put the item back in storage. When I called him, I could barely hear/understand him and he couldn't really give me any details about the item. However, he wanted payment via venmo or gift cards. After I insisted on paypal, he never sent me any further information.

Beware!

I posted about this same spammer a couple of days ago so he has not gone away.

I missed your post, but I'm glad to see that someone else posted too. Is there an admin who can boot the person?
