  • DO NOT do business with anyone who offers to send you payment for a higher amount than your selling price with the understanding that you'll send back the balance.

  • Be suspicious of anyone claiming to be acting on behalf of a "client" or another "customer".

  • Be suspicious of anyone claiming to be from Nigeria or West Africa

  • If you agree to accept a check payment, then do not send anything, gear or "change" before the check cleared. And be careful, if you manage to clear a fraudulent check then you may be liable for the damages if the bank finds out later. Make sure your bank authenticates the check.

  • If it sounds to good to be true, then it probably is.

With that said, I feel I must remind people - once we disable a user, he will still be able to contact you via e-mail if you had already spoken to him. Quite often I get asked why the person is still in contact with them.

Once you have seen a user listed in the security and scam alert forum, you should cut all contact with the scammer immediately and block their e-mail address.
