Default poor classified results

Is it just me or does it seem like there is a lot more people that get burnt on bad deals [me included] on this site than others???

In my opinion, you would have to compare the volume of sales between sites to make a determination. I feel sure the percentage of bad deals is about the same no matter where you go.

We have more deals each month on RCU than any other RC website so we should have a higher number of bad deals but it will be in proportion percentage wise to the other sites out there as lightfoot points out above. Members should always check other members karma ratings (only RCU has feedback so we urge users to use it), use escrow if not comfortable with deals, get phone numbers and verify them, etc

So many members get an email, send payment and never verify anything and wonder why they get ripped off. All the tools are here to minimize the chance of fraud and even options like escrow to guarantee a deal goes well but some still decide to not do any due diligence or just don't care.

Do you really think RCU can do more then allow a rating of a bad user? We can (and do ) ban them of course if they are in a fraudelent trade if that is what you are asking. If you have something else in mind though please advise what your thoughts are.
