Scammers are low lifes and should be treated as such.
EDIT: His gf is mildly decent looking. We should run train and make him watch.
Mildly decent looking is a stretch there bud. He's about 2.5 hours from me. I Don't have a dog in this fight but maybe he needs a visit. His employer is listed on his FB, a call to them might motivate him to start paying some folks.
gospeed....why not make a tag for their names kind of like your "moderator" symbol. That way they have a big SCAMMER (whatever word you want) located right under their name in every post they do
Admin would have to do that since it would require a new user class. Brian's lazy, so don't expect it...it's easier to just ban the *****...but then we have to figure out their user names on other forums. Maybe a scammer avatar would work?
Having a sticky means that (if you remember to search every time) you can stay away from the guys our collective has dealt with, regardless of where you're buying.
#1 way to avoid issues is always feedback. If they don't have SEVERAL good transactions here, ask if they have feedback on eBay or another forum. Multiple screennames can be a problem, and I've sent a vague message to eBay users when provided feedback and seen if the reply seemed knowledgeable of the transaction here.
If they have good feedback, and are a known and active member, its USUALLY safe to deal with those folks. The less feedback and less of a "regular", the more the risks increase. Guy was fairly new, didn't have much if any feedback, though he was fairly active for a short while.
Damn I was In line to buy those rims, out of no where he told me there were sold even though I was about to end a Down payment, I'm very glad I didn't, sorry for your luck dazed, get some retribution!!! P.s. I might have another number from him I'll double check!
