Hello to you all,

I reacted to this ad from Aolgeir Laseinoae and wanted to buy the Mewlon from him. He has no ratings and is only member since 21/3/2019.He asked me to send the money using the Paypal address  robert1974Phillips@yahoo.com.After askin he explained it was his USA paypal address he used when living in the USA before coming home to Estonia
I asked him for his home address and telephone number so I could check his identity. Even after a reminder I got complete silence. So please be careful...

Ahhhh found it by actually looking in the Dall-Kirkham folder.....still cant be found with search by the ad number, seems like perhaps that folder is not being searched. It also doesnt appear to work for that folder if you just global search for Mewlon. Something going on with the site search function.

The name cant be searched as you gave it since you didnt include the special characters in the spelling. Probably would if you had cut and pasted them.....

Anywho based on no response when you questioned him I would agree, stay away from that one. Good catch.
