Curly1,
The problem is that the Scammers have access to the sight and use the information to scam members off of the Sight. I personally do not answer any emails about contacts off of the GunBoards web sight anymore, unless I send them a conversation.

Don't put your email addy out there in a post is the first rule,

We can only do so much here the rest has to be on the members being cautious and doing some investigating if they are thinking of entertaining a deal no matter who the individual is.

Is there a way to limit access to WTB or trader sections to members only and with a specific post count? The INGO forum allows classified access after 50 posts. It would make it harder for those banned to continue to post. It would also make it easier to spot scammers as their post won’t be of any quality.

Just a suggestion to help weed out these scum and protect real members.

The scammer problems now are only on the boards that where originally set up to allow wts/wtb/wtt ads. The Regular trader forums have a minimum post count to gain access, and it has been very effective in keeping the scammers out so far.

1) So you have 2 choices, either use only the Regular Trader Forums,

Or

2) Ask your Forum Moderator(s) to have the Admin set up there Trader listing the same way.
