    Your profile says you are from Kansas, yet, you have a United Kingdom phone number (pretty certain because I have friends in London and other parts of the UK). Did you recently move here? What are your TOS? Do you have any reviews?

    Should make them pay and become a supporter of the forum to post in the ads. If you already have a positive review or you've been a long time member the fee should be waived. @Enn49

    Still...photos are stolen from Pinchers and pokies ads. They aren't owned by the original poster. Makes them look really bad posting for sale with some else's photos.

    I shall keep a close eye on him. There's not a lot else I can do without proof that he's scamming.

    Did the seller recently move to the States? Does he have slings to small to photograph or is inexperienced?

    How come no price or DLS info? Hopefully he clarifies this.

    Think about it... Stolen photos. UK number but US IP, could mean he just moved. No info like DLS or Price. Let's assume he recently moved from the UK, let's assume that's why he hasn't changed his number. Wouldn't it be hard to bring his T's all the way from UK? And it would be nearly impossible without all the export permits or whatever. So let's assume he didn't bring it. Let's assume he bought it in the US. Wouldn't a move all the way from the UK be expensive, and pokies are pretty expensive, if I made such a big move I would be settling down and saving up my money to pay off the house. It's a lot of assuming, I know. But it probably is one of those scenarios. This is pretty fishy... And he joined less than a week ago, only to post this ad and never update. Someone should maybe text him and see what up.

    I applaud the innocence of youth but call me a cynical old git but if this was genuine, surely he/she would have tried to answer the questions posed here and give us all some assurances. since the OP and suspected "outing"....nothing!
    There are much more trustworthy sellers on here already so if I was in the US, I would steer clear TBH.
    Just my opinion though and could be completely wrong! It did happen once, I didn't like it....:D:D:DLOL

    A lot of people think I trust everyone too much. That's just how I am. :)

    nothing wrong with that. I tend to trust that the vast majority of people are decent human beings and I treat them as such. God help anyone who abuses that trust though....LOL

    Not to mention if you can steal photos you can surely post your own.;)
