    Hey guys. This might be discussed before but I want this community to be safe and remain cool as its now.Not that i'm BHW power member or something, but lately while drinkig coffee in the morning I browse BHW just for fun and I see potential scam situations. For example Freelance jobs - some kid wants some bot compiled or script made to make some cash or whatever. And you know what, more of the half of the answers are from people under 20-50 posts (not saying that those people dont have programming language experience) but it looks fishy. I suggest making something like e-Wallet in BHW so if someone is purchasing something and isnt quite sure if the freelancer/service provider is good or trusted he/she can request payment via this e-Wallet. The e-Wallet itself will have like monthly payments(or some kind of delay) and a dispute system. What I mean is even if the freelancer or the service provider is a scammer, the victim will have time to react and make a duspite/hold and admin/moderator will check it.

    When a community becomes bigger and bigger and its nice place, its a potential scammer target, so safety first.

    Kind Regards,
    todordonev.

    That's what we have the shit list for. Keep in mind that we are handling with vbulletin and i'm very sure that that can't be done from the backend of vbulletin.

    OP I see where you are coming from, but the Admins and Mods are on top of their game hence imho status quo is doing just fine right now...

    I have read the admins saying that Escrow service is a much hassle. It makes sense if you think about it. They are already busy keeping this site spam free and making the changes when ever needed. Escrow service is only going to create more responsibility. They can be sued too in the worst case for making a decision.

    Your payment processor already has dispute facility ( and your cc company too). So I think it would be the best to use that instead of e-wallet or anything similar.

    You are right g0g0l but when you send a dispute to paypal the bastard will still be here in BHW taking another shot... Sad but true.
