I've been a member there since 2005, and it's a shame that it's so bad.

I posted my need for a Robbe SF 36 Sailplane on RC Group. On July 1, 2019 I received a message from a "bpollard" via RC Group referring me to an individual in California who has an SF36 for sale. After negotiating an acceptable price I sent the money. The individual in California sent several emails that they would ship my Sailplane- lately they blocked my phone number and are not responding to my emails. Does this sound like a scam?

Thing about scams...they will never give you their real names, addresses, phone numbers or state/country of origin.
That's what makes it a scam...false info, then they take your money.
If you were going to rob someone on the internet would you give your real name? Or even where you are?
Use just a minimum of sense...these guys aren't in CA.
Africa, East Europe or the Caribbean would be my guess.

ps...If you don't believe this, I know a Nigerian Prince that would love to meet you.

He's a cheapskate because he paid an agreed upon price, and got scammed? Now that's wisdom!
