    Ban the Use of Skype, in SALES Threads

    Okay, so in the short time I have been here I spent all of my time in the market section waiting for someone to come on with a deal I liked. While I was sitting in the forums adding potential sellers to Skype I noticed how many fake skype accounts there are for each and every seller. I am luckyI am smart enough to do some research because several people attempted to scam me. I know Skype is a big part of communication on many forums but in the Marketplace section it's more of a major hassle. There are plenty of other services including but not limited to telegram and other IM services.

    That is another option. There just needs to be a way to confirm your talking to the correct person.

    This is the dumbest reasoning I have ever read.

    It's not hard to ask for PM confirmation to verify their identity.
    Anyone who gets scammed by impostors is genuinely retarded.

    Skype won't be banned from use in Marketplace. It is arguably the most popular means of communication on MPGH. If a person wishes to confirm the person they are speaking to on Skype is really who they say they are on MPGH, ask them to PM you, check previous threads, see if the Skype they have linked there matches what you see on your screen.

    Most people who get scammed by impersonators do not confirm users identity through MPGH.

    Always be aware of impostors, ask for Skype verification by having the person send you a message on MPGH.
    Please do not waste my time & your time with useless messages. These will be ignored and actions will be taken.

    Make sure to read the MPGH Rules & each Section STICKY for extra information and rules that apply for that
    specific section.
    *Please confirm my Identity on Skype before any transaction* If you have any questions, please feel
    free to contact me using the links Below.Please make sure to SEARCH your question using the following link first
