Even when I sell, I tell the person to send the money Paypal Goods and Services. Let's them know right then and there that I am not trying to scam. I also video the item being tested by me and being boxed up. I take pictures of the shipping receipt. And I stay in contact daily with the buyer until they receive their item. Once they receive the item and say everything is good.

Been selling online through forums (Toyota Supra stuff), facebook market place, craigslist, offerup/letitgo

A couple of items i do on both selling and buying.

As a seller,
1. as-is, where is on items. If electronics i make video time stamped to show condition and if working. Any issues once recieved by buyer must be filed through shipping company ( i always put insurance on packages).
2. Background check to best of my ability, i have caught scammers just by simple searches. Not going to divulge how but lets just say most are a bunch of lazy f's or have zero imagination.
3. Paypal goods and services AND make damn sure tracking info is supplied to both the user and PAYPAL. So far have not lost a case of incorrect shipping.

As a Buyer
1. See #2 above
2. Note red flags like high pressure sales tactic, simple grammatical errors. Unsolicited messages to contact outside of where ever I am at (even craigslist you can communicate successfully without having to IM or text someone).
3. I only use Paypal goods and service and a credit card that has my back. As of this post, have not need to use either and I just recently purchased some high ticket items from within CONUS and Russia.
4. Common sense, if something is to good to be true, more than likely it is!!!

If you are talking about me then you are going to be mighty disappointed. I'm not going back 16 years to find post of a banned member simply for your amusement. Theyve probably been deleted anyways like thousands and thousands of other post. I gave you his name, feel free to look for yourself. As for the other person if I had any intention of telling you who it is I would have already done so.

Bish ain’t nobody talking to you.

Talking to OP saying he got 6 messages from scammers yet has not posted who or screen shots.

Probably would help to know who is “scamming”.
