- Matthew Smith anyone know him?
So the guy calling himself Matthew Smith offered me a pair of carbon R1 levers after placing wanted ad,
Sent me picture of a pass port & driving licence which showed his name & address.wanted me to do bank transfer, just struck me as odd, searched on Google images & found the image he used.
Quick search on his email & not the first time he has done this stuff.Posted 5 years ago
Placed a Wanted Ad for a seatpost:
“Matt” contacted me saying he had one. After a few emails we agreed a price, he said he couldn’t accept paypal, but could do a transfer. I said I wasn’t comfortable with this and he offered to send a pic of his DL along with his address. He also offered to do 50% now, 50% on delivery, something others have done on STW in the past.
I did a bit of due diligence, found his FB, Twitter, MSE accounts and checked his bank account details against the register..all seemed fine, I also found something else for sale on another forum, but nothing untoward and so agreed and paid.

I don’t think I’d be very reassured by a pic of a passport and driving licence which could belong to anybody. How exactly does that prove anything? I’d never use a bank transfer to somebody I didn’t know, and asking for that is more than suspicious. I’m also struggling to think of any legitimate reason why somebody can’t use PayPal.Posted 5 years ago
