Find out if someone is a scammer

Well it's hard to find out, because scammers job is to mask itself as honest person. And their actions are well thought and studied in advanced. To catch one in scamming you have to be better at the game than they are, so that you know what does it mean what is they offering to you (example: if someone is offering you an Iphone for 100€, when lowest price out there is 300, chances are, they aren't buying one for 300 and then selling it to you for 100).

Or you need to know something about the nature of business (business practice), like if someone is selling new Oakley glasses, when in fact Oakley doesn't sell their glasses threw third parties.

As person them self is the hardest. You need to do your home work as it is said. Check personal info, history, background etc. Even big agencies and private detectives doesn't always get it right. That's how hard it can be. Especially if one is professional. For amateurs you can catch, by asking a lot of questions and checking for inconsistencies or contradictions. Also you can choose options that they are not prepared for (I will pay threw pay pall; Ok, give me email and I will send you transfer request; Request, what, how .... request!?!!).

These are just few most common ones. However there are unlimited options in the field and that's what makes it interesting.

I have a holden vt and the airbag light don't work they checked and said no glob faulty can I have it removed if not is it expensive to fix they said the whole dash needs to come out they wont pass...

rock and hard place
you only have a few choices,
1: DIY
2: sell it
3: scrap it. (sell each part on fleabay and be rich)
4: or let honda fix it.
it is your choice,

if this is a DIY question and not a GUESS game.
then, read the FSM. read the pages on air bags
its all clear, what to do .... every step.
this is true for all cars.
ill post rule 1 now.
never work on bags (touch parts or related wires)
until you do the FSM bag defeat procedure , we have many folks killed or maimed buy not RTM not reading the manual or doing the steps stated so clearly.
It can snap a persons neck or your helpers. easy. in range of bag.

drive to honda, at the parts window say FSM for Pilot.
bingo. the factory service manual.

the roadworth guys are well trained and fooling them is not going to happen.

cost varies by what is bad, and who fixes it and if new or used parts are installed, and city you are in, costs vary by city .
and whats expensive to you, may be pocket change to others.
nobody knows
you must fix it or sell it.
in some places in uSA, you cant even sell it, "calif'

Buying NFL tickets, what else do I need?

NFL, the national football league of Us which is getting popular everyday. I know the price of nfl tickets are uprising but even today it is possible to get the tickets for the whole family even and therefore I would rather tell you to stop thinking gibberish and go for a legit seller who can manage you tickets cheapest according to your desired seat plan. Maximum of the online seller has not a huge stock of tickets to sell and therefore they can not manage tickets for you as per your wish. Be aware of hidden charges what a good seller always clears.

It's fixable, but it is easier for them to just sell you the whole expensive part. See the problem and solution at:

Identity theft & forgery

If she's stealing money from you, contact the police and then your credit card companies.

If you know who this person is, and have proof of it, send the police to her house, and get them involved.

They're the only ones that can stop this sort of thing.

Just be sure you have valid proof, otherwise she can sue you for slander if it turns out that she's innocent.

Factory settings?

1. If you use the system recovery and go into advanced, it will erase all personal data and all programs installed, putting it back to the way it was when you first purchased the computer.
2. To get to the system recovery on an hp, you press the key that is indicated during bootup, either F10 for older ones or F11 on the newer ones. It will boot into the recovery mode from where you select the advanced option. It will give you a warning that all your personal information will be gone.

Thank you and please take a moment to rate as fixya. Thanks.
