Scam alert...

Just a heads up; if any of you are contacted by the user: iRUNIT I'd like to hear your experience. He/she contacted me about the Atheos rims I have for sale. Set up a delivery at a dealership and received a text from the person that they couldn't meet me cuz they were stuck in security... ???

Just a heads up.

He apparently paid for a sale item from another member. I am not sure how with him not meeting you that it is a scam. He could have very well been tided up at an airport. Did you try to call him?

Called him several times. Told him to call me. Voicemail was full and is a financial company. I'd verify the payment was received.

I'm not saying definitively that it's a scammer; but every communication from the person started with 'hi sir'. Maybe just polite and legit; but I don't think so at this point. Just wanted to give a heads up.
