    Scammers on fs ft buyer beware

    Just goes to show mods are doing a good job. Just spotted a deal posted that was obviously a scam. Beware of posts like this as most of us will realise it but the odd few will think what a great site I have found!

    I cut the text and pasted it below. Wish ebay could get rid of their listings as quick!

    There was absolutely no reason for you to call this person a scammer ? I really don't know why you have ?

    Can you not edit the email address from the op's post as this may lead to trading outside of the forum?

    Ok I may be wrong :oops: cash on collection doesent mean it isnt a scam though:thinking: nothing says you will actually get to collect the phone if you happen to be local to whatever location the seller gives you. Chances are more people will think its a genuine ad because it has the option to collect but still have it posted.

    If I am wrong not to trust a fs thread from a person with 2 posts and terrible grammar then I will gladly accept a ban for trying to warn people to be cautious. In hindsight I would have not called them a scammer though :whistling:

    There is nothing from their post to suggest a scam. Yes, you are right to be wary of anyone with 2 posts trying to sell a high value item. But in future, please just use the report button to ask a moderator to check it out.

    Also, in the thread itself, it is usually forum etiquette here to ask for the seller to post pictures of the item showing their username in the pic, also their ebay username for trading feedback. If we all do this, hopefully the world will become a safer place :-D
