This isn't on our classifieds but I thought people should be aware of it:

https://repocar4sale.com/product-category/classic-cars/

This looks to be a site made up to trick people. The 356 listed was sold on BAT.

Anthony Smith in classifieds, beware

Just reported this. The ad for the Hazet box, handles and dash is most likely a scammer. He tried to pull the same on Pelican some time back. Beware

Price rollback in classifieds for pre-A dash, restored square-handles, and Hazet spare-tire toolkit.
Advertiser joined Registry Dec 18, and only accepts PayPal friends and family.
No protection from PayPal if you commit this fraudulent payment scheme. My guess is it would be a Merry Christmas for him, and lumps of coal for you.

Nice catch Joris, I also reported it this morning. Moderators took it down 10 minutes later.
Great job everyone
