Xavier Kingsland placed a wanted ad for IOTA magazines and last week received an email, from George Ward of Grimsby, offering a number of IOTA magazines but also seeking help in disposing of a JAP engine and a quantity of speedway spares. Several emails were exchanged and contact details and phone numbers were also given, all appearing credible . Money was transferred by Xavier to a bank account for the magazines and because of the help and advise that was given, George asked that £10 of the purchase price be transferred to club funds as a thank you for the help!! The magazines have not appeared and email and phone messages have not been answered. A Google search this morning has discovered that George Ward is a scammer and several other, mainly bikers, have also been scammed. BEWARE when responding to an email offer to meet a wanted request, and check as to the bona fide of the person offering the goods - YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
