I was looking for a 1940-75 series grille here on this message board.
In vain, I might add.
It seems that some Aaron Crossetto of Washington State canvassed the wanted ads to offer items he does  not own.
He offered me several grilles that were on ebay, for a cheaper price than advertised there. Quite obviously a fraudulent action.
Also requested payment through Moneygram.
When I told him that I have a friend nearby who'd come and take a look at the item and pay him, personally,  if item and price were right, I never heard of him, again.

It's depressing that these people are infiltrating the hobby.

When I turned down his offer for being the wrong grille, he wrote that he had another or a friend who might have one....
