It's only getting worse.
People join everyday with the sole purpose of ripping our members off. This shit has to stop.
We see a lot of WTB (want to buy) ads affected.
They send you a PM sending you to an email address, where they have what you want at a sweetheart deal.
ITS A LIE!
But the reel or rod is so cheap! Don't believe it.
This happens almost daily. DON'T FALL FOR IT.
If you have any question about a seller, do a little research. Do they have any posts, under 20.
Most are only interested in ripping you off.
If you get a weird pm wanting you to go to a random email. PLEASE let me or Jason know.

Thank you.
We've gotten rid of quite a few scammers so far.
But the scam is still going strong.
If you have a WTB ad up. And you get a PM telling you to contact an email address.
SEND THAT PM TO ME!!!
They will be delt with in a hurry.
Thank you again.
Ciru1 is gone

How about eliminate "WTB" type want ads and just keep it open for sale items only? I stop putting up WTB ads simply because of this issue.

I've found so many good deals on BD with WTB ads. And exactly what I want.
Also, I've found plenty of scammers with my own WTB ads.
That being said. If you place a wtb ad. Be advised there are pitfalls.
But easily recognized. A member PM's you, sending you to an email.
ITS THAT SIMPLE. That's the scam.
If you get this type of correspondence.
Please let me know.

Scam still going strong.
We get them in registration approval.
Last night I got a guy that just joined. But had already sent a message to a guy looking for a Seeker 93h.
Mexico seems to be a new player in the game.
I wish we could have a post minimum to post in the classified section.
