Scammers and Warnings Subforum Location

This Subforum is currently in Buy, Sell, Trade forum.

I suggest it be moved to be a Subforum in Shopping Discussion.

Looking at the threads in S & W is appears that few of them have anything to do with scammers in the BST forum of RFD. Instead, they are postings about scammers and warnings in the big world of shopping outside of RFD’s BST.

Uers are more likely to be warned about scammers if the Subforum were in a more obvious location.

Maybe RFD could create a forum shortcut which links to the existing subforum. That way, multiple points of access to one point.

If so, I suggest that one of the shortcuts be from Off Topic. There seems to be a number of scam postings there, I suspect partly because the S & W Subforum is not very obviously located.

Definitely something we can consider doing. It was originally created to warn people of scammers within the BST but has since expanded to be much broader.

I wonder whether any more thought has been given to this. I noticed today a six year duration thread about scams in the Shopping Discussion forum.

I continue to think “Scammers and Warnings” would be more likely to be used if it were a subforum in Shopping Discussion.
