we need pics for all buy/sell/trade (protect from scammers)

Post by xtremesavage » Thu Apr 23, 2009 1:56 am

we should demand pics foir all items for sale, to protect all buyers, from scammers, after reading this thread http://www.rctech.net/forum/r-c-items-s ... -fast.html
we should have this as a rule, read this thread, and tell me what you think.
I know pics are no gaurantee, but it is a start.

I agree totally with pics and some sort of creditability......

I myself got caught out with , buying a Savage X of ebay 6 weeks before christmas after having a savage25 for 2 weeks, I thought it would make a great christmas present for the kids, I paid by paypal and waited, every email right up to christmas was replied with its on its way any day now and so on it was my 3rd purchase off ebay and using paypal.

In the end checking his feed back went from 100% with 79 sales to under 40% after the savage x rip off as he sold heaps of them and made off with the cash, paypal refunded some of the money but most gotripped hard by the guy, he even had land line phone numbers to ring which he answered right up to christmas 2007 before he vanished.

Is there a way that the site Admin can add something to around the avatar like a seller rating number that only the Admin can do. I don't see it being anymore work then post a PM to the current forum.

I might be wrong but its the best way I can see a secure rating system without a major rework of the forums!

I think this is a great idea but to make it a "pics or gtfo" rule would be difficult as some people simply dont have cameras. We could strongly encourage it, which we do.

Sniper, i like the security rating idea alot. All of these ideas will be brought up with the other mods and admin.

We'll keep you guys posted.

Thanks.

MX I disagree, everyone has a cell phone these days, all cell phones have camara's. you can email the pic to yourself. if you cant post a pic, your not trying hard enough, or your scammin people, wether its a rule or not, I wouldnt buy anything without seeing it first.

security rating is great idea too.

I think if you have under 100 posts on the web sight they can market their
stuff on savage-cantral but the actual transaction has to be through ebay.
so you can't get ripped off.
Post it with a buy it now and email the buyer the link to the page.
