Scam E-Mail

I find it totally INVASIVE that a site of this stature could or would allow someone to have access to an Advertisement for sale area, and take the time to aggravate a member about a product he or she has for sale. I know this day and age of society with all the modern software we have access too is not free of SCAMMERS, but this is a little distasteful , to say the least.
I knew not where to post this, and I hope the POWERS THAT BE will make an honest effort to curb this type of activity and give it's members what they deserve. Thank you,

The OP must be referring to the classified's?
I've seen and reported scam coach ads on there.

OK, that makes sense. However I don't see how irv2 can prevent abuse, until after the ad is placed and someone reports it. Failure to follow up on complaints would be a different story.

This kind of problem happens with all classifieds; pay and free, in many publications and web sites.

Les - I agree but what exactly happened is my question. A Nigerian Prince - a Russian bride - a promise to put inches where needed or remove them where not - a Amazon Escrow Account - a Merchant Marine - what's making it's way past whatever protection there is on the iRV2 Classifieds. Is it not members only in our forum Classifieds? I've only looked for a Jeep a couple of times and not found what I was looking for and moved on, so I'm genuinely wondering.

I have been contacted on two(2) separate occasions about ads in the classifieds section. The first one being on our motorhome ad within the past 60 days, the second being today about accessories in the classified section also. What I am so concerned about, is how did this person get in the site and recover my email address, which is not posted anywhere in the ad ? or correct me if I am wrong, what am I missing here? I just feel that this should not have happened not once, but twice. Thank you and all the staff, I may be wrong, but I felt privacy was on our side being members of IRV2

You can always tell a bad ad in our classified. Anyone can join and there is always a cheap price and only 1 post under their name.

Justimagination,

All anyone has to do is click on you name in your profile, get the drop down menu and they can send you an email. (See photo below) They can't get your email address, just send you an email.

Anyone can create an account here, check the classifieds and try and scam you. It happened to me also, recognized it as a scammer and reported it. It is hard to stop, just report the scammer to iRV2 and let them take care of it.
