    Well done everyone!!! We dont like scammers!!

    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!

    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

    Have no idea what you're on about.

    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

    what happened? i didnt see. good work anyway. No one likes a scammer!!

    :?

    What have we missed?

    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

    it was the feedback that gave it away, topseller only registered today and had three feedback all off his alias - lol

    Cor, you lot are vigilant. Glad to know i'm in a safe place rep added :thumbsup:

    well done community patrol.:thumbsup:

    Nice work guys, loving the negative rep he gave himself :-D

    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.....

    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:

    thats good to hear JB: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.

    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.
