I’ve been on AV forums for years, I mainly use the classifieds there and in the recent past scammers targeted the classifieds relentlessly, mainly the iPhone section, I’m pretty sure they were in Lichfield and used all of the usual stuff ie ’no I won’t be home at such and such a time so I’ll post so send me the money’ etc.
Think it was one family who were doing most of the scams and they were eventually caught and convicted but they were back within weeks.
That’s why I’m annoyed with myself for getting caught out because I know the rules when dealing with random people selling stuff but I just let my guard down and got caught.
I don’t actually need a grinder either which is bleeding ironic.
Anyway OP best of luck in your search.
