Hey,

I am a newbie of your gr8 mazda 3 forums, n ive been in the background just watching around. however, i decided to participate much positively. i boughtm y new 2006 m3 2 months ago without the navigation, however, im intersted in installing an OEM like screen for a carputer install. i did lots n lots of searching n i could get a kit that to some extint staisfies me from some where in north europe, however, many forum members warned me from that manufacturer, so i went into shit again n did some more search n found another excatly OEM like screen in a yahoo taiwan auction. i contacted the company which sells it n could get an offer for a group buy. however, being a newbie doesnot really help, as the not all of the members trust me. many members r intersted in this screen n willing to get it, however, they suggested that i contact one of the mods whom they can trust.

in case u r intersted and welling, we would be happy that you collect the money n send it to that company, n support the whole issue as well. if u r not, then plz tell me whom can i contact as they need credability.

this is the company's website: http://www.moveart.com.tw/
I WOULD HIGHLY APPRECIATE NOT POSTING THIS WEBSITE IN THE THREAD AS MY CONTACT GUY IN THIS COMPANY ASKED FOR, althought u should konw that money will be sent to THE COMPANY PAYPAL ACCOUNT, n i will not b responsible for any financial affairs
here is the thread's link : http://www.mazda3forums.com/index.php?topic=49976.0

P.S: im not making any $$ out of that, all i want is to get a discounted screen for my 3 as well as suggesting a new solution for those who want such a kit for their cars

id highly appreciate ur help n keepinh this condifential

thank u

hearin from u as soon as possible

Do you all think it's a scam or what?

I have no idea. That's why I'm wondering if it's a scam.

He most likely PMed you cuz you have teh highest post count, where as in his PM he states :

however, being a newbie doesnot really help, as the not all of the members trust me. many members r intersted in this screen n willing to get it, however, they suggested that i contact one of the mods whom they can trust.
So I guess he assumes one of two things: A) your a mod, or B ) People trust you...

I would just tell him to let his Group Buy play out.....and see what happens

I got a PM from this dude, which I will not post because it's a Personal Message.  Same crap, different day.

even though he is a noob, if he was offering a legit group buy and ran it well in a way where people would most likely not get scammed, then people would jump on it. Tell him he needs to rethink the way he's handling the money in the GB.

Honestly, I think that with stuff like this, he can do whatever he wants to try to start a group buy on his own. But before we even think about getting involved in any way on any group buy (and any endorsement that could be seen as us giving the group buy our official stamp of approval) we better be damn sure it's not a scam. And from what I've seen of this case in particular, I don't exactly get a warm and fuzzy feeling you know?
