Saw this post on Pistonheads and thought it may be of interest on here;

"I just wanted to warn PH'ers about a scammer THOMAS/TOM DONCASTER doing the rounds on various car forums (mainly VW group) via the 'parts wanted' boards, he gets in touch via PM proporting to have exactly the item you are looking for.

Almost 5 months ago I posted in the wanted section on Briskoda for a set of alloys. TOM DONCASTER PM’d and we agreed a deal. He didn’t use PayPal (know we know why) and after some assurances (reference & a copy of his passport) I believed he was genuine and sent cash by bank transfer.

The wheels never existed and despite continued promises, the most recent last week, the lying scrote still owes me £300. He's turned over a number of people on Briskoda alone, he gets banned and then reappears under different guise.

I don’t want anyone else to be scammed by this lowlife, who resides in Fort William.

If he sends you any PM's on any website please let me know so I can update ActionFraud as they are collating his crimes."

Should always pay via PayPal send money via goods services transactions so you have the buyers protection, unless they have an established reputation on the forum as a member and for selling then maybe send money via the friend button (without buyer protection) .
