Just joined and offering an almost too-good-to-be-true deal with free shipping?
Hopefully someone local can snag this if it's real.

Not sure many scammers provide a contact number. Just sayin. Im not in the US, or Id call it, then Id know, rather than random conjecture. Having said that, its always wise to be vigilant.

Just because you can call a number and someone answers it doesn't mean it's not a scam.
There are many scams happening while people are talking to a live person.
Just sayin'

Look at al the other ads. High value items with free shipping (which on this sailplane would exceed $250 easily).
Also notice it's "text", not "call". Great way to hide.

FYI I believe that photo was one of mine. I still have this kit in a box if anyone needs it hit me up. I promise I am not a scammer and my price is much higher to prove it lol

It is heartening to see the RCG administration's fast response to this obvious scammer. I suspect that this is likely a repeat scammer using the same IPO address as a previous RCG identity and thus was easily identified, although I have no way of knowing.
