The guy just joined 5 days ago, and no posts other than selling SW GCs at below 70% and Jet Blue credit etc. Reminds me of @Isma05 .
Need to be careful of new members who are here just to sell GCs at below market value.

Maybe @Dan should make that board limited to people who have been on the forum for x amount of time?

Ive traded a few times but i recently joined...
i sold $1000 Delta GC and also bought a few things...
If such a rule got implemented, then i think i'll probably also be not able to post?

If it's too good to be true.... When shopping for a car on Ebay you quickly learn that any vehicle significantly below market price is just a scam.

Ask for references from other DDF members. If members with reputations vouch for them you are probably ok.

@hellow305
If you PM me details I reach out to other side and ban if they don't respond.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

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

gift card first only gets you so far. Unfortunately, that's still not enough if someone's looking to scam ppl
Buy discounted gift cards from me.

Ive told people they need to wait till its redeemed if i dont feel confident. A new person here who is not looking to scam would obviously understand and with references would be ok with it.

I was suspicious when he offered SW GCs for under 70%. @Isma05 style.

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.
