    I didnt know where to post this so im sorry if this is the wrong spot, and if someone could move it to the correct thread that would be cool :)  .. thanks :) 
    I was over on the Tfieds site looking for some figures and i came across a person selling Nemesis Prime for 25$ as well as many others for cheap.. So i emailed them to find out if it was the alternator version , and they replied the next day telling me it was the alternator version and that i should send them my shipping info so they could tell me how much to send to them with " Western Union " ..
    Alarm went off when they told me they only take payment with western union.. They say they are in the US as well so why take WU?? lol . There broken english email didnt help to convince me that they were legit, most likely from china or japan.
    So i replied to them asking why i cant send postal money orders and that i didnt believe they were in the US and i never heard back from them.. So to me this is a scammer trying to steal our money.. Collectors that been in this for a while know how to spot scammers but for those just starting out they could fall prey to these wastes ..
    this is there Tfieds ad here , i seen others like it listing the same type of hard to find toys for cheap so im sure they got more them one ad on there .

    Just wanted to give those that use the Tfied site a heads up on this person. Oh there emails are signed Karen G and there email is sent from onome147 i wont list the rest of there email , they could use the same name from different services..

    thanks for the heads up looking at that site it does seem a little fishy. Esp. $20 for Starscream, I assume Masterpiece. Also the wording on the site is kinda broken English you would think if it were an actual seller they would take the time to spell and separate their words on their site.

    They used to be streettops at hotmail.com too. They repost the same pics and prices.
