Default Buyers beware

Please note since posting a request for parts for a restoration project I received several offers such as the one below. Whilst I am not in a position to judge the authenticity of such offers one can only question the proposals being made:

Default Paypal address dormant? Not.

Please be very careful, and Paypal addresses are there if you have not purchased anything in a very long time. I would not deal with the person.

Default Sounds like a scam

Paypal is dormant? Can't send pictures? Sounds like a scam to me. Tell them you'll send the money after you receive the goods.

I have shoes and cylinders for reconditioning , but you can buy the cylinders for Jag XK 120 on eBay new ! ( the same as 6 cylinder Bristol ) -- the master cylinders are also the same

You can send the cash to my sister in Nigeria :-))
