I noticed I’m getting a lot of replies to a WTB post from people who seem to be new members with no real replies. Or they only have a wtb post themselves. Are people searching forums to scam wtb posts? This is the only forum I’m on. If so what’s the best way to spot these people?

I get scam call's and email two or three times a week. I have seen them on this forum before. Just be very aware and you can usually tell them when you seem them.

I get all the usual scam emails and calls. This is the first time I have seen people trolling forums in search of wtb adds. Then join the forum in order to send scam info to the purchaser.

We used to have moderators to enforce the rules. I don't think the current owner gives a shit.

I get this on OfferUp (a local sales site) all the time. They are low-Lifes looking to harvest your mobile number so as to sell it to telemarketing brokers. Pennies on the dollar but I guess its all about mass quantity. Check and see for yourself......respond to them and that will be the first thing they ask for (your number) supposedly so as to communicate easier. Once you divulge the number you'll not hear from them again (you've alreadybeen victimized). Only way to spot em is to check their stats before responding. Keep in miind though that ther ARE legit new mwmbers out there, so be careful before pouncing. I've sent out a few "FU" responses to innocent people myself....quite embarrasing.
