@thegunner,

no magic number here, I'll leave it to the moderators to come out with their own set of rules.
and you're right, registration date can be considered as well.

Use forum classifieds for what they're intended for, and the problem is solved. Trading between FRIENDS. Friends don't include people who you require take pictures with the daily news paper standing in front of a notary public. Those are strangers, and trading between strangers should be done on Ebay.

Sure. :beerchug:

Because I do not trade on forums a fellow cyclist did try to sell something for me. He reported me that my item was sold then came back that the customer did not pay. After a while he told me the story with his Austrian customer that he wanted this part so desperately and tried several times to get it shipped before it was paid. Always had an excuse.PayPal account was blocked and then it was his CC attached to his PayPal account which he just changed .But in the time between he reported four times that he had already paid for the item.
Reading his name here was no surprise for me.

It's so obvious to tell a scam really, I won't say my reasons for, but clearly these people are sociopaths.

Guys, please gather more information on people! If they are a new poster, ask them to email you from a work email ie, xxx@generalelectric.com or something.

Hope it all works out for u..

But something is needed. Not a one month membership.

Yet another SCAM just posted today in "For Sale". The alleged member "louisberter" (in first posting) advertises a near-new pair of current Lightweight wheels for only EUR1300. or best offer, and wants you to communicate via a new yahoo account. RED FLAGS EVERYWHERE - BEWARE!

Why are we getting a rash of these?

Because people are falling for them!

I'm now deleting the posts and the user, no multiple chances. It's clear they are spammers. And we are trying to get a post count limiter on that forum (without much success). So best you guys can do is please keep reporting them so we can zap them.

Cheers (and sorry).

not sure if this is possible but are you able to ban these users by their IP addresses so they have to keep switching computers each time they try to sign up to post. I have a feeling its the same number of lowlifes that keep doing it.

Problem with IP Address bans is that IP addresses can be dynamically assigned, or you could end up banning everyone who uses a specific ISP.

I like the post count limit on forums but it does mean it gives a certain air of legitimacy to scammers who put an effort into getting the right number of posts. But that behavior should be easily spotted by mods, things like rapid shot responses to threads and thread necromancy

Well, you can easily see from the quality of the posts what kind of seller/buyer you are dealing with.
Just have some small talk about drillium, wheelbuilding, rebuilding a shifter, overhauling a hub, BCD, setback, favorite riders, aesthetics of carbon weave and you will know enough. :-)
