Hydrovane scam

Ive been sent two different PM’s regarding people selling used hydrovanes….both are scammers im sure of it.

Seems legit but when I mentioned certain things about the unit their answers didnt make sense.

One person dropped their price from $1800 to $600 if i just sent him the money.

Re: Hydrovane scam

There is a red and white triangle to report messages towards the top on the right hand side.

Once we have the message we can act quickly and stop them.

Thanks

Re: Hydrovane scam

Adding more moderator comment to this thread - it is really important to report any suspicious PM ASAP.

We will investigate quickly and if appropriate, act immediately.
