What is "unfortunate" is when someone shows up on the forum, takes someone's money, and leaves, and your situation rang several alarm bells. The post was reported as "suspicious" due to you never having posted on the forum prior to this as well as Venmo seemingly being a favorite vehicle for scammers. A second report suggested that the pictures had been recycled from an older for-sale thread and the thread was taken down to allow some investigation.Hey @kgschlosser This thread was temporarily taken down out of concern it was a scam, apparently. Anyways, I have paypal so that is perfectly fine. Also happy to send you a verification image of the radiator at any time if you like. I can add a custom note to a picture or something. It's unfortunate my very first posting was flagged but it is what it is.
For reference, most of the VerticalScope forums do not allow classified postings, or even access to the sub-forum until a number of posts and several days (the numbers vary) of membership.
