    Here and at other classified sites. Sweetdanjons@gmail.com, this is a scam email from armslist. Message or pm from another member or email that reads like this is likely a scam. If you get one from a member here report it to Forum staff.

    Mod may want to sticky this for a scam example.

    A heads up is a good thing........but. Anyone that would do that deal after receiving that email probably needs to lose some money, just for the slap upside the head.

    I’ve gotten these before. They are all worded similar, especially about adding extra cash to the deal. They prey on the greedy and uninformed.

    Never send any porn to anyone, the phone number could belong to a minor, used or cloned by scammer, and that is not a good thing.
