Not that you'll care I'm sure, but it will at least bring you to the attention of the mods and either temper your behaviour or get you banned if you carry on with the bad attitude.

How do you get on in trading then if nobody is to deal with newbies!!!!

I think that was little bit of a naive thing to say and not very helpful!!!!

Something clearly does not work here, be it the guidance, the site, or the users. I accept that whilst we have these scum bags using the site there is a chance of being conned, but trading on here certainly does not seem safe. Which is a shame.

aww goood idea

I do but doubrtful to as its his real one think its sumone else he knows

I know that saying this doesn't help you now, but this is the EXACT reason why we have the trading guidelines. It's well worth spending an extra 15 mins when making a trade to obtain (and check) the user's contact details (e.g. telephone number, etc).

Users who don't follow the guidelines are, unfortunately, eventually going to fall foul of scammers...

This user has already stated that they did not follow the guidelines. Unfortunately all public sale boards attract scammers. The best way to put them off is to be as stringent as possible in collecting information about them, and if users follow our guidelines correctly then events like this should be avoided (I've yet to hear from someone who has followed the guidelines and been scammed).

Sorry to hear you have been conned. I don't like to think that there are people out there who do this type of thing regularly but it is hard to ignore!!

I have traded on here when I was new and would never have dreamt of conning somebody!!

Sorry again mate!

We generally don't take one user's word against another in situations like this, however the feedback system is there to be used and if people aren't leaving negative feedback where it is due then that's a problem...

This can easily be solved as you have his address. Call his local police station and report this whole thing to them, as it is robbery isn't it??
