If you received a pm from member name "arpuff" do not reply . He has been banned on several forums for sending pm's trying to separate members from their money offering to sell them whatever item they have recently posted in the forum WTB classifieds .

Thanks

Thank you!
I have banned @protonmail in the backend.
No users will be able to create an account under that email address.
Keep us posted on this.

ALERT/Warning remains in effect for the Classifieds .

Continue to beware of PM's from new members responding to Classified WTB ads and telling you "I can get it" or "Contact xxxx , he has it " and then an email address . They most likely have 0 post history or maybe a handful of meaningless replies .
