There is an unusual amount of shit list threads about people who got scammed by newbies, those with almost no status on this forum. Seriously people, why do you keep falling for that shit? What makes you think someone with a new account here would not go for a scam? Those scammers risk nothing, they get banned and so they keep repeating their shit, but you lose your hard earned money. Stop buying from them, you ever heard of the risk factor? You always value in the risk before placing your money. I'd rather pay $500 for a product on ebay to a top-rated seller than $400 to someone who just pressed the sign up button. Only buy from donors and VIPs who have a BST thread! They are much less likely to become deceptive. Because if the do try to scam someone, they'd lose their business on this site. You need to estimate one's value on this forum. If you take me for example, do you think I will run away with your $100 and get myself banned? But you should also not overestimate the value. Do you think a 2000 repped guy would run away with your $50k and get himself banned? Just think about it and use common sense. If someone is making tons of money, is he really in need of this forum to not risk himself? Has he been involved in any dirty matters in the past? You have to think before you act. Don't be afraid to ask if you are suspicious about something, no one will hurt you, even though that might happen, things are all controlled from the upper levels, us seniors and the mods.
