LOVE THIS. We take a multitude of measures to stop scammers and delete new accounts everyday whether it be by antiscam bot, user discernment, blocking IP addresses, blocking them at signups & registration, but at the end of the day the #1 way we can stop scammers is to be strong as a community and help educate eachother about the scammers. Once you see a few, you’ve seen almost all of them, but they work hard.
We have kicked out users that message us months later still trying to get back in, but we have a very strict policy on scamming. We’ve been forced to kick off sellers who have had over 400 5 star reviews who decided to get take a little extra benefit under the guise of their good status. Unfortunately it is just the reality of the area that we exist. We thank anybody for their patience in educating new users and weathering the occasional dm that looks a “a little bit too copy and pasted that usually wants to go straight to KiK”. They also probably have less than 10 reviews.
They really attack sellers and buyers alike. They really treat it like a business. Another common one is the amazon gift card scam. Be suspicious of anybody trying to pay in gift cards, especially if they don’t have much history. The internet is a wild place and we thank you for joining us on the ride.
