WTB Thread Scammers

We've received reports of new "members" PM'ing those who post WTB threads offering the item or referring them to another seller who is "trusted." The seller then requests unsecured payment methods (such as Western Union or Moneygram) instead of more trusted methods. Thus far, we have no reports of anyone being duped into sending money to these individuals.

If you receive a PM reply to a posted WTB thread that appears suspicious, please report it to the moderators so that it can be investigated. Never send money to someone you do not know using unsecured payment methods. It is always wise to check the posting history of anyone replying to your thread via PM to see if they are active members.
