    Just keep reporting suspicious activity as you guys are, it takes us a day or two to check things out and make sure we're not just banning every new member that wants to sell something.

    It's him. Searched the listings and serials. Banhammer time. Thanks to the guys here who checked him out. Suggestion: Consider a PM to the Mods when you have a suspected scammer; no need to let them know we're looking into them. But this train of thought goes both ways, so use your best judgment. And thanks again.

    Members; please be careful when purchasing an item from an individual you aren't sure of. We have been hit again by a scam artist, but it looks like we found him out and sent him down the road before he could rip anybody off...again. If you suspect something is amiss, let us know ASAP! This action is not taken to limit new members from posting in the classifieds, but we do have ways of ferreting these scam artist clowns out. It sometimes takes a little time and effort on our part, and we need to be sure before we ban them and delete their posts. If you have info that may help us, PM the Mods. My recommendation is don't send money to someone you don't know or at least know of. CHECK FEEDBACK on the seller's profile. Check their posts, be sure before you part with your money. Just be careful.

    wow mods... sry there is trash like this lurking, looks like a full time job is ahead of you guys dealing with these reprobates...I hope someone befriends and outsmarts these guys, asking for a physical address etc, claiming to be internet illiterate, old, feeble and downright loaded with cash and wants their item so bad as it reminds them of their childhood they are willing to pay a little extra...

    If I run into these guys I'm going to let loose on them and fight fire with fire !!! Then get ahold of internet fraud devisions in said hood the perp resides and hope for the best, and in my minds eye the best is the absolute worst for them... Blessed and Thankful for a pillow at night which I lay my head on knowing I've done my best everyday !!

    I was just wondering that very same thing..We used to have standards..It seems this has gone by the wayside.
