    BUQUICK I'm your huckleberry.

    New member, joined today. Sent me PMs about two items I am looking for in the parts wanted section claiming that another board member has what I’m looking for. However the board member name he referred to davi754, does not exist.

    I got a message today saying the same thing. He would reply to text, but his conversation bounced around like a yo-yo.......so I went to call the number and it was a Google earth number.....which is almost always a scam


    The number was 608-561-7362. Says he is located in Milwaukee.

    Message came from rboyle

    Took me a few seconds to sniff it out as a scam.........but I was bored and wanted to see how far it would go. Lol

    Guys, I got the same message. This is becoming a regular thing not just here, but, on all forums, GTO, Chevelle, you name it.
    Happen to me two months ago here and I sent info on to Jim.
    Be careful with all this type of junk.

    I've had stuff on Facebook marketplace for sale recently. 3 out of 5 responses are bogus. I generally offer to go and break all their windows, but I don't think they have windows. Likely just a head and a key board or less.

    I had one reply to my request for a NOS headlight bezel . Said to reach out to a email , I reached out and asked for pictures of said parts was sent pictures of some badly painted pitted used headlight bezels with a price of $550.00 . I asked if they were new NOS and was assured they were. I passed on them. Buyer Beware!
