Another modest attempt to scam the faithful

See the 1959 Cab in the Registry classifieds for $60,000. We've seen this one before.

Well, it was a nice looking car. Nordic green with a brown bolt-in roll bar, looked like brown leather seating, sans bumpers. Wonder who owns it.

How are these scammers able to place ads?

Do they "join" (but not pay dues) and are then allowed to place an ad?

I'm sure smarter minds have been working on this. TLC

They usually join with stolen credit cards.
I always need stories for my Barn Find column in the magazine, if you have a good story to share, please let me know.

I'm sure then that the good folks at the helm will figure out some time delay method to insure valid payment prior to posting an ad. TLC

Pretty thoroughly discussed recently, Tom. See this thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=46374
Some days it just isn’t worth the hassle of chewing through the restraints......
