JamesDFRS - SCAMMER

Received a message from a user named JamesDFRS replying to my WTB post for a Tomei 80R exhaust. He photoshopped his name onto another users image. I reverse image searched his photo and found this.

Do not buy from this scammer!

Holy shit. That's a pretty convincing photoshop.

Thanks for the tip OP. Glad that guy's banned.

Dear Scammer:

Please send me a PM. I'd like to send you a box of compost worms from my compost bin.

They are good at making things out of shit, which apparently you are also good at. You guys will be good friends.

Sincerely,

Alex

Use google images. There's a button somewhere that will let you upload an image to search for.

If you're using Google Chrome, you can right click on any image to reverse image search. I don't do this out of habit, but the pictures he sent were questionable and suspicious.
