Seems as they have increased in numbers over the last week or so, I could list about 5 that have been banned today alone!

The rules offer you no protection.
More piece of mind.

I wouldn't consider it anywhere near the most part your own fault if you get scammed.
Thats like saying that its your own fault if you get hit on the pavement by a drink driver.

its about protecting yourself the OP started this thread because he got scammed himself he traded and parted with cash with someone with no previous on the site that in its self was silly and i for one would never trade with someone unless they are willing to post first to someone with good feedback and while thats no gaurentee that they thenselves would not be ripped off that is the reason that i said most

Read how the OP got done and you'd agree with fragilious. The OP went out of his way to deal outside of hukd so was basically asking for it imho. :thumbsup:
