YES dave2233 with send you a pm with a 714 cel #....great pics great deal IT SEEMS. demands F and F payment on PP. I offered to pay extra so we can do G and S on PP. They refuse. "need money fast". NOPE....TOTAL SCAM....Texted me for days pegging me to send money F and F. Lowed price too. NOPE. Others complaining. I Let Matt admin know last month. I hope these losers get blocked. User was complaining he got scammed BUT PP wouldn't help? If you pay G and S you ALWAYS have recourse. I feel sorry for the dude BUT NO ONE SHOULD EVER PAY F AND F on this forum. IMHO....peace all.

dave2233 has been banned for a while. Do make sure to never use "Friends and Family" and provide any new usernames you feel are sketchy, so Matt and I can take a look.

IBJoel, the new users will not understand that until they are bit by it.... The want now and need now, will override any rational... we have been fighting that since the beginning.

As such, I think what if the PM feature for New members is suspended for the time until after they have compiled 10-20 meaningful posts... I mean given the BST access is only open until after meeting the requirements, can it not be the same for PM's perhaps. As of late we have a lot of members that are compiling what amounts to 0 meaningful posts, such as "Nice", "cool", "I like that" and others along those lines!

He also gave me the 714 cell # , I sent him a text that I wanted to buy the item that I was looking for and when it came time to pay he said paypal F&F. I told him I was ONLY paying G&S but he kept insisting F&F. He kept bugging me, so I just blocked his number.

Yes, not hard to detect these persons are here for other reasons. Any normal new person would involve him/her self into the technical topics with legit posts or topic starts. In the past people got their meaningless posts deleted to be sure they do not get their post count raised to reach more pievileges.
Also the image server is abused with non RC related pics by people w/o any postst.
