*** KNOWN SCAMMERS ***



Log in to see fewer ads
Email addresses that have been used in attempts to scam members via the Want-to-Buy section of the Trading Post.

The scam goes like this: Scammer cruises the WTB adverts in the TP and sends a PM to the member claiming that he knows somebody who just happens to have what you need. It's never he himself but always his buddy. He never posts comments in the TP advert but always contacts you via PM -- that way nobody notices he just happens to have one of everything listed in the WTB section.

Don't fall for it! If you get PMs from a newish member that knows somebody who just happens to have whatever you posted a Want-to-Buy advert for exercise more than the usual due diligence. If in doubt do not hesitate to report the PM to the moderator team by forwarding a copy of the PM or by clicking on the icon that looks like this -- it's up in the upper right corner of the PM.

In addition to checking the list of known scammers below you can do a google search of any addresses in the PM you get to see if they are being reported as scammers elsewhere on the 'net.

Be careful!

That "zipparo" character just tried to scam me last week. I didn't bite, it just didn't seem, sound or smell right. Much appreciate this compilation of known crooks. Thank You Much
