Default Fraud warning from California - Abraham Weeks - LS430 wheels

In my search for replacement wheels and tires, I repeatedly got emails from a person in California that sent me chrome LS430 pictures. He claimed to be a retired firefighter and 67 years old.

He claimed he lived at this address:

6100 W. 3rd Street Los Angeles, Ca 90036

I looked it up on Google maps, and it's a Chase Bank. Then he said "Sorry, I gave you the wrong address, it's 6109 W. 3rd Street Los Angeles, Ca 90036.

This is a BUS STOP.

His "alias" is Abraham Weeks and uses the following email addresses:

abramweeks11@gmail.com
frobertsontonic@yahoo.com

The "Google Voice" number he gave me was 424 253 5473.

After I asked him about why there's no record of his name being a homeowner in LA and why the address he gave me was of a bus stop, he never replied back.

He also said he's NOT a member of these forums.

He's trying to sell 2006 (5 spoke) chrome LS430 wheels for $600 with tires.

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up.
Thanks,
Shawn

I just wanted to tip people off in the wheels forum as he's somewhat persistent AND they might not think to look there (as I did).
