...you do not hold your horses and don't use your brain.

I received PM from people who got scammed by a newbie. I'm sorry to hear that but COMMON SENSE will prevent these incidents. Please read this carefully:

DO NOT MAKE ANY DEALS WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE JUST REGISTERED!

Most recent case as example:

Dannydoyle
was just banned for scamming. He sent many PM's selling anything from his grandma to 800IS. He had registered less than a week ago. He posted images of gear that we fuzzy and not his own. Prices were cheap.

Then just now another just registered member (sharing ip with Dannydoyle) praises his deal in feedback forum:

Can you prove he was scamming. There are people who recieve stuff all the time.

Did you ask him for a tracking number?

He may be selling off his gear, but hey you call him a scammer so he must be.

By the way to post his details on a forum you are breaking the law as you have no proof of any wrongdoing I suggest you change that as he may sue you for millions.

seriously? so you make another account?

First of all, bye bye.

Then, we never do post any personal details in PM or forum, but we do deliver them to authorities if needed.

And we do have lots of ways to to prove scammers easily. All your actions are on database and in many logs.

I was offered a good deal on a lens from Dannydoyle including pics of a lens that was sold on here in 2010. Ironically, the PM said their name was Kathie. Hmmm...Anyone smell something fishy?

There is a forum on here for selling gear. Circumventing that (and the rules for posting there) by sending PMs selling gear seems to be suspicious at best.

Oops - seems my statement will fall on deaf ears as you have already been banned. Buh-bye.

I kinda asked for it. I posted a WTB ad. However, I do know to keep my guard up.

Nice grammar for someone who knows the law... and I'm sorry but on the internet people with very low post counts (like um... say 3) who come in and try to tell someone off who has um... 10's of thousands of posts, is the admin, and who's motives are beyond reproach is bound to be met with skepticism, ridicule, and the ban hammer...

Heck I have almost 500 posts and even I don't trust half of the stuff I say... ;)
