IF YOU HAVE BEEN SCAMMED ON THIS SITE, READ THIS! It's time to take action.

That's right. Although I don't care to get involved with the transactions that take place on this site, I can only ignore it so far. Too many of my members have been getting ripped off by repeat scammers. These names are reported to me frequently, and it's gotten to the point where I simply can't ignore it. It's unfair to my members.

Banning these scammers only causes them to resurface with new names. They know how to play the game, and they play it well. So the time has come for action.


I have created a new username. SCAMMER TASKFORCE.
This username can and will be accessed by multiple staff members (including myself... mostly myself, I expect.) I'm doing this to ensure the issue gets the most attention possible.

PLEASE DO NOT POST YOUR COMPLAINTS PUBLICLY!!!


Here's what you will need to do:
PM SCAMMER TASKFORCE with the details of your transaction.
The more details, the better.
A clearly written description of the incident (take care in your writing, it could mean the difference between effective action and none at all!)
Dates of ALL communication (email, text, phone, etc...)
Contact information for both you and the scammer

Start gathering all info you can... pictures of items, screenshots of tracking info or paypal transactions, transcripts of text/email/IM/PM discussions, etc... Depending on the action taken, these things could help greatly. Don't send any files or images to the SCAMMER TASKFORCE name until you are asked, however.


Any abuse will result in a ban... so don't joke around, and don't try to get someone in trouble just because you don't like them. I don't expect there to be any issues, but I feel this needs to be said anyway!

Can you lower scammer task forces post count to 666? It would be more fitting with that grim reaper avatar and all.

I sure hope so.


Beat them up using a bar of soap and a sock, or maybe a phone book or a bible.

Something that'll hurt im sure.

Just a heads up:

In your original post it says the new member's name is "SPAMMER TASKFORCE" but the actual name is "SCAMMER TASKFORCE"

How about raising the minimum post count to make threads in the classified section to like 100. Then for known scammers set their post count to -1million.

You were one of the people I was hoping to contribute. I did tell you even back then that something would be done, and that you should hold on to everything. International fraud would certainly make it a MUCH heavier charge against at least one of the known scammers.

Mike, make this an announcement for at least 1 month.

That way everybody will read it, because it is the only way to make the "Yellow Speaker" disappear by reading the announcement.

Also make sure it is done as an announcement for all sections.
If you like I will set it up for you.





I will now proceed to add this into the rules section as well.

Good thinking.
I actually ignore the stickies and announcements myself (mainly because I've written or reviewed all of them ) but that's a good idea. I'm heading to bed right now, so I'll do it in the morning. If you feel like doing it now, you are certainly welcome to do so!
