Default Classified Listing

Has anyone done business with (ptrnfan)? He has a history in the last six months but has received no ratings. I'm in the process of working on a trade however if I'm wasting my time I need to no. In good faith I removed my listing of the item I am going to trade.

A guy has to start somewhere,, what makes you think he's trying to scam you?,, very rare to see a guy sign up and 2.5 years later start scamming pepole.

Pretty loose with that acusation,, I must say

I used the subject to draw attention to my question. Since you replied I think it worked. This indivual in question does have a history but no feedback. Don't you find this odd? Thanks anyway for putting me in the spotlight.

I see he has a history of posting classified ads,, but that doesn't mean he ever sold anything,, maybe they have been Want Ads mostly, Still a lot of nothing to be throwing out the "S" word..

Trades are always iffy,, I'll give you that, I hate trades unless I know the guy or it's done in person.. I'd get the guy on the phone and if you still get a negative vibe,, then trust your instincts

Good luck

I never said this person was a scammer as I explained previously. Enough said, maybe someone will respond who has had a business transaction with him.

I doubt you will find anyone that has info on this forum for this user. It they did then feedback would've been generated by one or both users. I don't see any reason not to trust someone who has posted adds without any feedback.

I also suggested moving this to off-topic OR marketplace support. I suppose it's quite fine to talk specifically about a user , but I would eliminate the word scammer. OR It is quite fine to talk generically about scammers without mentioning a name. If it is a known scammer then it is ok to report it on RCU. There are tools to do this too.

The ONLY thing suspicous about this user is that they MAY have 2 accounts. It's hard to tell for sure.
