It helps, but @Isma05 used to say (I give card you pay later) and then the cards were drained or shut off because they were purchased with stolen ccs.

yea in this situation it will be much harder.

25 for a new person you have to still CYA. make them give over GC first based on your history here etc.


I absolutely made him give over the gift card first. I booked my flights, then paid him.
He had cancelled the flights without me knowing. Then changed the travel bank credit info...

@ Isma05 or hellow305 already expert in taking the opportunity for system bugs
he's a network mafia, it's very difficult to fight

I have experienced a great loss of doing business with a mafia gift card that has an account,
SKYPE> aarongood25
email: aarongood25@yahoo.com
be careful with that person, he can infiltrate Mtruk, or stolen CC to buy / sell gift cards

I've completed ab a dozen transactions.  All good.  Ask for reference and if its too good to be true, probably is.

Mafia gift card?

I mean people who buy gift cards, by using a system bug gap or CC stolen , The result of gift card is invalid / locked / marked
although it can be redeemed, the item order cannot be sent

He offered 25% off a travel bank - thats not to good to be true is it ?? I have completed tens of transactions  on dansdeals and have common sense.
I think Dan should implement a system that we can rank our sales with other ddf members or limit new members of posting in goods for sale ...
These scammers get smarter and smarter each time they scam and will keep coming back...  he has already made a new login DMIT and tried scamming others again

Notice the trend here. It's SW and Jetblue primarily, for the reason that these programs allow ticket refunds (b6 with status only) so scammers book for you, send the confirmation, you verify all info and approve, and seller  later cancels the flight and gets refunded. Be extra cautious when funds from an airline with refundable policy is offered for sale.
Pay via PayPal for extra protection. It's worth the 3% fee in many cases.

I usually split even with the seller on the fees. After all, PayPal offers seller protection just as well as buyer's.
