Hi,It appears that there a few new classified scammers making their way into our midst. Please be aware. The typical operating procedure appears to be contacting people with WTB ads posted claiming that their buddy "has one available". Typically the respondent is a very new member with very few or no posts and is posting for a friend whose email is supplied.
We will try to keep them cleaned up as we can but please exercise extreme caution when encountering instances such as described.
I'm not super savvy on how to do things in the most efficient way on here. What is the best way to report a potential scammer? I posted a WTB ad in classifieds yesterday and have received a couple suspicious responses so far that fit the patterns described above, including one from that jamesyyjordan somethin-or-other
All, as pointed out by @Crcusmonky, please be very cautious dealing with @patrickstave851. We've had multiple suspicious reports.Here is another one to watch out for. Apparently the beast stand offs are quite attractive to scammers. I couldn’t find the report button in private messages.

Yeah I’ve got multiple with the “my old cousin…” response. That account being one of them. I’ll go back and flag them all. Obviously spam / scam.
