SHOPS BEWARE! scam! 500 NGK plugs...

lately some con-artists are trying to run a scam, they call to put in an order for 500 NGK spark plugs. they tried this one on me today, they were using phone relay, where the phone operator reads what the "customer" types, and types back what you say to them. this is for deaf/mute people, but the scammers use it avoid using their voice, and also try to get symathy or whatever. they may also send a fax.

you can ditch these scammers real quick by just telling them you wont take a credit card order, they need to do a wire transfer or a direct deposit to you bank.

i guess they try to get you to send the merchandise, and later it will turn out their CC# is bad, etc...i suppose they have some foriegn bank helping them run this scam or something, i dont know...

i figure most of you should know better than to get scammed like this, but its worth a warning anyways.

peace out to all my fellow parts hustlers.

The only way to tell if it was CarbonR 1/2 is if the order was for 500 PINK Spark plugs. :laughing6
