I received a similar DM from Stevemrt:

"I have a lead on a Native Thunderbolt you are looking for. Email Mark in Florida, He has one for sale

markhelmanns@gmail.com"

I didn't respond, thanks for the heads up.

I had a message about something I was looking for about 3 weeks ago, same member Stevenmrt, same Mark guy in Florida, he asked for bitcoin, and when I reverse image searched the item it was lifted from a Reverb listing from a year ago, with the exact same description cut and paste. I messaged the webmaster of DUC about it, got no reply, and they have obviously done nothing as Stevenmrt is still a member.. Good to see they are looking out for the members here...not..
