There has been an influx of scammers to the site. I've set the board to manual approval at this point to look at every account and accept/deny. If you post a WTB ad and someone with no posts and registered in the same day or recently sends you a message. Odds are, it's a scam. If they tell you to reach out to another person via phone or email, this too sounds an alarm of being a scam.

If someone is legitimately new and sincere, they should have no problem sending you a picture of said item with a piece of paper with your name/screenname/whatever written on it in frame of the picture.

Patracy,
While I am listed as anew member , I actually have been a member since 2017.
I have never changed my posting name and sign with my actual first name. My e-mail address has never changed .
I do not post very much and as such I probably do not make the posting requirements to PM under the new rules.
Could you allow me to be able to PM some private messages. Thanks.
Ken.

You have enough posts for this to not be a issue.
