Just to say well done those who spotted and reported the latest potential con/scam in the fs/ft board. Its by sticking together like this we can make it a safe place to do private sales/trades. Remember if you hit spam rather than expire it will make the thread disappear rather than just expire it! I think this way its still available for the mods to view though, so by reporting it as well it can alert the mods and get the member a well deserved ban. Its a times like this you can feel and see the forum as a community working together to make it a safer place!
Now if only real life communitys would stick together like this and not just virtual communitys!

Seconded- well done guys- hitting report is the best way to deal with it if you've definite proof of a scammer, and we'll deal with it as soon as possible.
Rep was left for you Harlzter, can't re-rep sassie & boothy yet however.

Who Was It?
banned 2 Likes #3
sadly the first member has only got a one week ban, so will be back, i personally think they should both be banned for what they have tried to do, but im not admin nor a mod, as long as we all look out for others people like this will hopefully get fed up and naff off

because only the alias gets a permanent ban, i know it makes no sense to me either, arent they both an alias

I would have thought a permanent ban would be in order for scamming,but not my decision

Agreed but he would need to up them quite a bit,he was a useless scammer,even gave himself neg feedback
#17
rofl maybe to make us think he's not perfect? lol

I thought this was the same person selling a phone previously listed. That was why i asked for a close up pic to be sure as the close up pic on the other listing had a rather strange thumb and i thought it would give it away. Didnt like to report without being sure

Nice work guys, loving the negative rep he gave himself :-D
#23
Nice one people. Always good to see one of the blighters downed !

Not the sparkliest of stars this one is he and hopefully he won't take up a criminal career. Rather easy to identify as well when getting fingerprinted !! :w00t::whistling::)

Not completely true - members have been scammed on here in the past and will be again in the future....... so always be wary even if its from a long standing member.....
#28
I wouldn't know an online scam if it hit me up the face, it's great to know that others are alert and protecting us newbies. A big THANK YOU to all involved in getting rid of this lowlife. :thumbsup:

no doubt he/she is a regular Ebay user, where the rep is the opposite way round...was trying to do a very quick scam.

It's important to stress that I am someone who is very savvy in these situations, and I almost got scammed on here from a very clever scammer. Took me almost two months to get my money back. So ALWAYS be careful :thumbsup:

What a derkhead loving the feedback... that thumb looked manky! I only hope that if he had scammed the £30 he would have used it to seek some form of medical attention. Looked nasty.
#33
LOL :giggle: almost as stupid as the fool a few weeks ago who forgot to log out of his selling account and log in to his second one before saying what a great price the seller was offering the item at :giggle: or something like that.
