    I noticed that there are so many scammers in this section.

    Everyone and their dog is offering everything, perfume, electronics, bags, shoes, etc.

    However, most of them do not even reply to a pm, neither add one on skype/msn etc, nor give any information in order to start a real business connection with them.

    Others do reply to pm, however, suddenly stop that as soon as they are being asked for their details like address, paypal email etc.

    I definitely do not understand what is the point here. What do they expect from offering things they do not have? Even they do not want to take your money and go with it, they just never get any money because they never reply to anything ....

    yes, however, there are many people here offering perfumes, electronics, headphones, software etc.
    But if I send them a Pm asking for details, they never reply. So what is the point in offering things that they do not have?

    FYI not responding to a pm != scamming.

    If you've got legitimate accusations with logs and such to back it up, take it to the shitlist.

    It's not scamming unless you paid for something and did not receive it.
    Failure to respond to pms is not scamming. Your sense of self entitlement needs to be taken down about 150 notches.

    yes, it might be not "real" scamming.

    However, the point is, I am asking what is the reason they offer things they do not have? If they would have it and would like to do business, so why do they not reply?
    There are people here sending out price lists, images etc.
    Then when I want to start buying from them, they simply disappear ...
    Are these 10 year old kids or what?
