    Trading Awareness! [How to minimize the risks of being scammed!]

    Hi all! just thought i would like to share tis. hopefully its useful to some. Seasoned users should had already know most/all of these.xD


    1)Always check thru the person's previous posts or threads as it can tell ya something abt him/find possible warnings. [Might take ya a few mins more but better be safe than to be sry! =)]


    2)Check the Forum/Skype name/other details on forum or search engines.


    3)Take Caution when the last post of the person is quite awhile ago.(the AC Might be hacked) [Might only nt in all cases!]



    4)Take Caution of New User posting Threads wif doubtful website! use ur spidey sense! [no offense to legit new users!]


    5) Misconception- the person is paying me first and leaving a note saying he wont chargeback, i should be safe?
    No, Unfortunately not
    , Chargebacks/Unauthorized Claims can still occurs with the more commonly used payment methods like Paypal/Money Bookers.



    6)DO NOT accept a Trade if the contact details are different from what is being listed in Buyer/Seller's Thread even tho ya received a pm/code from the Buyer/Seller's AC. The pm/Code just acts as an additional deterrence to the scammer,it is nt 100% safe. If the scammer is willing to go thru the extra mile, ya will be facing a
    (Diamondstarfall is a scammer, evidence inside) Double-Sided Scam


    Scenario as below~

    XXX
    Fake XXX
    Fake DSF
    DSF

    Fake DSF talks to XXX, asks XXX to post 'talking to you'
    Fake XXX talks to DSF, asks him to reply to his 'talking to you'
    Fake DSF then shows XXX the reply, XXX ofcourse thinks its legit.

    7)Also, i would like to suggest to only consider a pm wif the quote of a part of the skype conversation in the pm as a valid pm, which would unlikely to have the same entire skype conversation if he wasnt the person ya r speaking wif. It would be way harder for the impersonator to pull off a scam!


    8.)Lastly to ensure safe trade, the most impt thing is to Pls check tat ya had added the correct skype of the Buyer/Seller or if a Buyer/Seller adds ya check the real skype name [Real Skype Name]

    Just an Example




    Like shown in the SS, put the cursor over and make sure it shows "diamondstarfall" or right click profile to see the Real Skype Name after adding as shown below.




    The high-lighted Area will show the Real Skype Name![its important to check that they dun come with extra "." + "," and any other symbol!




    Trade Safely & Enjoy!
