I have been scammed multiple times on ddf. It is a real cesspool of opportunists....

On what percentage of transactions done here were you scammed?
Were any scammers active, long time members?

Multiple times??  :o

How does that happen? You didn't realize to ask for references after the first time being scammed?

Can we delete half the posts on this topic and in other threads related to this.. all we are doing is giving scammers ideas needed to make themselves look more legit.

If there's someone really good out there he knows what he's doing even without your/our help.

  It's like saying the news shouldn't publish stories how the burglars broke into someone's house, hence you're giving ideas for thieves and burglars have to break into people's houses. Obviously that's a dumb statement because you got to live life and that's what happens you just have to prevent it by taking security precautions on your end.
  in my opinion I think you can accomplish more by putting it out there and warning all the members that there's those that will scam people whether new members whether old members it's on your end to make sure you don't get scammed and take the extra steps to avoid being scammed.
   
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

+ and - is cool, but what don't you like?

 For example a guy like @davidrotts63 one day he bumps into a site called dansdeals forum and creates an account, he seemed like a very knowledgeable person, with Keen eyes.
 First he became my buddy when he joined DDF, And now he blended in like a long time member. Was thinking to have him over for my pesach Seder but thinking again before that happens.. :P
  You got to be careful out there..

It's putting ideas in peoples heads. Yes .1% of people can come along and steal a car. but 1% will steal a car if the keys are left in the ignition.

With your argument being said above. Not so sure if I should be posting this on an open forum, but good thing they don't come to visit the biggest yeshivah in North America..(GMB)
