Default Potential Scam??

Got this PM this morning. New member joined this month (maybe today, I can't tell) with no posts.
Posted in third person

"Jeff has a Leedy Marvel Strainer (1924-26?) that he wants to part out for a cheaper price maybe you should text him and see if he still have it for sale. Here's his number .........."

once the brass ceases to glitter, and the drum looses its luster, and the stage remains dark, all you have left is the timbre of family.

Okay ... this particular member did indeed just sign up, as in ONE DAY ago! That being said, in checking his sign up info, the email he has sent with the phone number and email to contact him is NOT the email he supplied with his sign up info. With that being said, I would NOT contact this guy as it seems a bit fishy. I'll continue on this behind the scenes, but will say that this wasn't the best way for this person to begin his membership in our fine little vintage drum community. BEST!!!
