So I wrote in a thread saying I'm looking for a specific drum.
I then got a PM from an account with no posts and no information.
They said to email them as they have this drum for sale and gave me an email address.
After writing them and getting a response right away you knew it was a scam.
They sent me screen shot photos and etc.

How can I submit their screen name in to be removed from your website?

Been happening a lot lately. I'd go ahead and post the name here to forewarn others. Don't worry, scammers don't have feelings...

That does seem to be one of the new more popular ways of spam/scam. We remove spams and scams from the forums as quickly as possible, but when they're using PM's we can't as easily detect it unless we're told by the member(s) receiving the message. If you receive a scam message then make sure to report it to the moderator team and we'll put an end to that particular one's forum activity. It's like that old game though where you whack a mole with a hammer as it comes out its hole, but as soon as you whack it another one comes out of another hole so it's an ongoing process. If they get immediately reported and banned then they'll hopefully just move on to easier forums.
