Default Who and Why?

Somebody is deleting my posts of For Sale 1937-40 Ford Flathead V-8 60 HP Items for sale. I am also getting very nasty Text Messages telling me I am a Scammer/Fraud for asking $1,600 for my Items and that I am going to be reported to Admins and to The Police. This person is also on The Ford Barn as they said they saw my Post, however they are hiding their Name and Screen Name and their Number is Restricted. I don't appreciate this and I have notified Law Enforcement and showed them the Messages, and they said it is more than likely a Scammer/Fraud using a cheap Phone and they cause their trouble and toss out the phone and that way nobody can trace them.

Default Re: Who and Why?

First never put your primary email or phone number in the ad. Next only allow contact thru Fordbarn remove your email address/phone from your contact info. Next, post about where you are located. For example, if you are located on the east coast and someone interested in the V8-60 stuff is on the west coast, kinda a waste of time going back a forth. Kinda late now as they have your number, I would block them. Same with your email, so it goes right to spam. The only person that can pull your ad is Cob or Chris if it has been reported as spam. You can also get your ad pulled if located in the wrong section. For example; posting a For Sale or Wanted ad on the regular forum.

Is this the one you think was deleted? You say "This person is also on The Ford Barn ...", are you sure you aren't confused about the site where you are posting?

Is there any part of the story you are leaving out?
