Default Computer Question

I decided to sell my 41 Ford Pickup cab and posted it on CL. Been several years since I posted anything there and only got one to two scammers then. Within 2 minutes of posting today I got 5 texts from scammers.

My question is what software, or search engine do these people use to find auto parts so quickly? I want what they are using.

I have used CL a lot. I had that same problem until I said calls only, no texting and will
not answer answer e-mails. No scammers since.

You don't need software to find parts, they just cruise the appropriate sites.

You really need specialized training. Google search the keywords in quotes "How to become a scammer" 8^)

That was very educational to google that. First one is to be a born liar....

I just want to find parts as fast as they do. "Early bird gets the parts" or is that worm. First 15 minutes I got 12 scammers...unreal. If they worked as hard at a regular job as being a crook they would be well off.

I have "saved searches" on CL. You must have an account. When an item is listed I get an email. Same with Ebay.

Also look for online auction sites in your area. Ebay was the worlds junk yard and still is. Looked for 7 years for a grill chrome shroud for my 38. Found a perfect grill and chrome here.

30Murray,
That is a great site, thanks for sharing. I'm always looking for part in better condition than the one I have, or don't have.
