Been a scam going on in some forums where a member gets a PM from someone offering a detector at a good price, then saying it is from the USA & gets all offended when asked for a serial number.

If it smells, then it's a rat. Be careful folks!

Apparently the offer is for a GPZ around 5K. Their name is the same as a large Ebay seller. Give an excuse for not using Paypal.

When questioned the convo goes South rapidly.
