    Adding a Scammer Alerts Section

    I think there should be a another section called the Scammer Alerts

    Basically people can post warnings and attempted scams by other users and impersonators. And moderators can leave the topics open for discussion etc. But close them if they are full of BS.

    I think something like this would benefit the community GREATLY.

    Marketplace Talk & Scammer Grave

    No, there shouldn't. That's actually one of the purposes of the Marketplace Talk section. Users can make threads to let others know about active Marketplace scammers and such in it. Furthermore, that's also one of the reasons why the Scammer Grave section was created, so users can validly report scammers there as well check for any scammers there before proceeding with any kinds of deals with 'foreigners'/other users. Not to mention that there are stickies regarding all the OMM impersonators found until know everywhere. There's really not much else we can do to be honest. As much as you may not like to read this, common sense has to apply at some point and this is it. People need to start thinking twice before acting.

    Everything mentioned above is already in place for your suggestion. Threads of scammers in the marketplace are closed and marked with the Scammer prefix.

    The pastebin link is currently the largest and most up to date list with scammer info.
