    I guess that's why I haven't received my pictures of the Mamiya 7 Kirk-L Bracket

    I've read some of the e-mail correspondence, and this one is definitely very suspicious. He used photos from a well-known ebay dealer--one whom I've bought from myself and who is not in Spain--and at the same time claimed that the item was not on ebay.

    Anyone know jaybob20? He's been trying to sell me his horseman 6x12 and now I'm cautious of everyone lol, this is more of a verification from others who might know him?

    Too bad we don't have a ratings system on here for people who have already traded/sold things that they are trustworthy. But doubt that will happen when you can't even get panoramics to be big enough to see in the gallery lol!

    We tried implementing a ratings system, but not enough people contributed to it to make it useful. It works on sites like Amazon, eBay, and tripadvisor, because there are so many thousands of users that the few who rate transactions seem to amount to something, but there just aren't enough users on APUG.

    ^What about a sticky thread called 'Feedback for Sales and Trades'

    If we made a rule that the username of the seller/trader needs to be in your review, we could merely search that thread.

    It would work like a charm, no moderation or development cost from Sean needed, user supported, sounds like a win-win

    I'm with Andy, I'd like a review section. I've had such a fun time buying and selling to people on here, I'd like to sing their praises.

    One aspect of this could use some clarification. The OP said the presumed scammer said he lived in Spain and proposed a bank wire transfer.

    Here in the US, bank wire transfers between individuals are rare and (as a form of payment with recourse) are cause for suspicion. But as I recall it's very common in Europe and that, in itself, might not be cause for suspicion.

    Can our European members clarify whether these transfers between individuals are common?

    Indeed. I have made a few purchases, some big and some small but always with a lot of feel-good. I would most certainly contribute to a review system. Is there not a comment or reputation on profile feature?
