A reader has pointed me to a post from the Dollarlys forum where people can order parts online and get them shipped right away.
The site offers a list of over 200 different auto parts from different manufacturers that can be ordered online.
The list is sorted by category and then by cost.
For example, one of the more popular parts on the site is a battery charger that is $6.99 for a 24-month battery pack.
The seller’s prices are accurate and the part is a very reliable and useful item.
However, the site has recently been hacked and a number of the items have disappeared.
One of the sellers on the list has been replaced by a user who is not connected to the forum.
In a post on the forum, the seller wrote that the person who made the new listing was not a member of the forum and they have not been able to verify the new buyer’s identity.
The new buyer, who has a legitimate account, then purchased the items from the old seller and then removed their account from the forum once the new seller was replaced.
The buyer is not listed on the website anymore and the site does not appear to be in use by the buyer.
I did some digging on the internet and found that a similar scam was being perpetrated in China.
The scammer on the Dollarly forum has a very low profile and is often found posting on Chinese websites with fake names.
The user posts a picture of himself wearing a tuxedo with the message “I just bought $1.99 worth of batteries from you.
You can order them now!”
This is the same person who sold items in the previous scam, and this time he posts a different picture.
The same scammer posts an image of a large white car and writes “I bought the battery charger from you for $1,700 and you just sold it for $6,000.
You should send me the invoice and the money.”
I did not purchase any batteries from him and have no idea how much they cost, but if the scammer is using a real name, he is a legitimate seller and the scam has been stopped.
I also did not buy any batteries.
I have contacted Dollarlys about the scam and the owner told me that the new scammer had been removed from the site.
I will update this story when I hear back.
The Dollarlys forums have become a magnet for the scamming.
A number of buyers, including me, were duped by the scam as they did not know the scam was illegal.
When I contacted Dollarly for comment, the company told me the scam had been reported to the FBI and the company has contacted the seller.
While I was not aware of any cases of a real person selling stolen or stolen goods, I will be more than happy to buy from a seller who has confirmed their identity and has been verified to be legit.
