    Fellow members.

    We are seeing a big jump in scammers going after wtb adds.

    usually they have zero post count
    Pm you that their ‘friend’ has whatever item for sale, and to email them.
    ‘Thank them later’ and have you email ‘Richard’ something other

    usually at that point they’re asking for bitcoin or etc for payment.

    TGP staff is doing all possible to block these issues, but be smart and do your homework. Don’t send bitcoin, cover yourself. TGP is not liable for any transactions.

    I recommend using PayPal from your Credit Card, talk on the phone to make a real judgement, and make sure your covered.

    please report any PM messages like the above.
