There is a board member named PEYTON SCOTT who is attempting to scam people on this board. He will send you a pm, and an email asking to see pics, etc. He says his "agent" will deal with you because he is off island. He will send you an email with "Pay Pal" as the senders name. But it is not actually from Pay Pal! DO NOT give any personal history to anyone! If someone is wanting to purchase via Pay Pal, all they need is your Pay Pal email address in order to send funds, and you will see the funds in your account right away!

MOST IMPORTANTLY- ANYONE who says they have made a payment into your Pay Pal account, be sure to check your account. The funds WILL show up (even if they are on a temporary hold, for whatever reason. But you will see it).

NEVER, EVER wire money (Western Union, Money Gram etc, ) to someone you do not know. You WILL lose out!!

*Mr. Peyton Scott, I know you are reading this.... I SINCERELY hope you make a very wrong move, scam the wrong person and get busted!!! You certainly will not be scamming on this board anymore!*

P.S. Gotta take care of my peeps, this board has been awesome to me 😎

you could go over there maybe during the weekends

aboard a sea plane, your transportation expenses will be covered

let me know if you can help

Scot Peyton is fake and a liar.
