New Scammers and Warning Forum Rules - This thread is not for petty complaints

Hello all,

This forum is meant to help make it easier to avoid scammers. This forum is not for petty complaints like "UserX showed up an hour late for our trade" or "UserY backed out at the last minute".

You should only create a new thread here if a trader has or has tried to rip you off.

Be reasonable, sometimes people do get sick/go on vacation/have car trouble. Please only create a thread when you know you have been ripped off.

Thanks,

-Ryan

Well done for finally getting this upNrunning.

Naturally., it is only a tool, and won't 100% avoid people being scammed-but just like any tool, with proper useage, may help get the job done.

I'm curious why there wasn't any cross-board advertising about it? An annoucement c/o adminCP or such? The only reason I found out about it is because somebody (not a mod/admin) pm'd me to say so...I was shocked to learn it's already been kickin' around for 3-4 days?

Cheers.

Ryan shouldn't we know of blatant "no-shows" so we can avoid wasting our time and gasoline with these people? Driving 45 mins to Scarboro Town Center to supposedly meet a blatant liar and he he doesn't show up is a rip off in my opinion. Don't ban threads of no-shows.

I hate to agree with the guy, but I think this needs to be emphasized a little more.
Deal with it.
