    When I suspect someone of being a scammer I ask them to meet in person "So, you live in X-town. How convenient. I'll be there in two weeks time and we can meet and close the deal in person..." If they suddenly start making excuses for not meeting in person it is time to back off.
    If you exchange pictures, ask for specific angles so they can't use other peoples pics.

    Couple of days ago ago, I received two responses, via APUG, to two WTB ads I had posted last month in APUG. Audioman Offered to send pics. he was from Spain????

    Yesterday, I received an email offering me a Speed 4x5 when what I wanted was a Speed lens board. Thought nothing of it until I just read this thread and the light went on in my head.

    So if "Audioman" hasn't logged on since the above date, how did he know about about my two WTB ads posted in May, 2013?

    Inquiring minds want to know!

    One can read the classifieds without being logged in.

    OK, I think we have a case of mistaken identity. "Audioman" is a legitimate user.

    The scammer is "adioman" according to the e-mail I have from one of the users, who received an e-mail from "adioman" via the forum, and he's logged in as recently as June 5, 2013.

    So Sean--If you've banned "audioman," he should be reinstated, and "adioman" should be banned.

    I often visit the italian Pentax user forum (www.pentaxiani.it) and there's a feedback section there. You simply report what you bought from whom and that the transaction was ok... simple and funcional, and no stars or rating sys needed...
