    Odd for sure.

    I was suspicious from the start, but I also tried to be helpful (I mean, you never know). But on the heels of the scam just a few weeks back ---which in truth had to be perpetrated by someone who *knows* this forum--- I was quite convinced this was some type scam as well..... maybe even related.

    She is allegedly in Texas. They've been pretty much wide open for some time now.

    Assuming the one here was the same organization working MyLesPaul, they are still making attempts... two were banned from MLP this week, though they did not appear to have hijacked existing user accounts, they were just sending PMs to people offering "leads" on their WTB threads.
    The one that hit Monte also hit over there AND compromised one of the mod's accounts, and then proceeded to ban a lot of people. The mess was stopped and cleaned up quickly.
    IP traces did show servers in Nigeria until they got smart and used a VPN redirecting from New Jersey.

    Hmm nasty stuff. Thanks for the update. Just reread the post too.
    Another reminder to be cautious online.

    And it does suck that these scams are so frequent that it puts people on edge and makes them cynical of anything out of the ordinary.

    For the record, if you see anything from me for sale, it’s a scam. I’m a hoarder and a buyer... never a seller :D

    Post some pics of the units. We'll then try to help figure out what you've got, and go from there.

    Are the diapers vintage made out of cloth for the the plastic head safety pins or the new fangled peel and stick landfillable? Each has its own tone you know.

    Are they fairly new used diapers or are they well reliced?
