    Precaution on the FS threads

    Well I was looking at the for sale thread and came across a guy selling a profecb and he was talking about how on the other forum he belongs to he they take the pictures with a piece of paper in it with their sn and date to help out with scammers. I think this is a great idea that we shound incorporate here at ClubWRX.net

    This does sound like a good idea, i've never bought anything off the forums because i'd be scared to get scammed. I'm sure this would make everyone feel a little my comfortable when buying off the forums.

    It's not a bad idea, but we have an extremely low scam rate here. I personally don't think it's necessary.

    def not required becuase theres a lot of folks out there that dont' have digi cams, me being one all I have is my trust razor but i'm just tryin to get the idea out there that this will make people feel a lot better about buying a part from someone.

    Yea, thats what i was thinking too, just doing it might make someone who wouldn't have bought the item otherwise pick it up.

    They should make this a requirement on nasioc, apparently alot of scammers post there =P

    hmm. thats a pretty good idea. i'd personally feel a little better buying from someond who did that. not really saying it should be a REQUIREMENT, but it'd certainly give me better piece of mind. i may just do that myself if/when i ever sell anything in the future

    I guess if you really want to sell something you can do that as a "proof" when someoen is skeptical. However, this can be replicated pretty easily and a lot of people probably wont' want to go through the trouble of doing this. This is a good recommendation for anyone who comes across a skeptical buyer though.

    as the site grows it might unfortunately bring more scammers, so i think this is a good idea
