    So basically you would like a Marketplace guide on how not to get scammed by scammers/impersonators to be made? It's not like many haven't already tried to make one and adding to that, you're forgetting that newbies don't read the stickies even though they're right there.

    Well, I really appreciate your suggestion, but it'd be a waste of time honestly. Members rarely to never read the stickies. This isn't up to me though, but still, already providing you with an opinion in advance.

    I've read all the stickies chesta <3

    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

    Well the most common way people are getting scammed is by adding an impersonater.

    Simple solution: FORCE the seller to include a hatscript, can be implemented on all section marketplaces.

    And impersonators adding sellers, this ofcourse comes down to common sense of the seller looking up the skype in the MPGH directory or asking for proof which is harder to address as a lot of members/guests don't read stickies like @Chester. This just really comes down to the sellers having the knowledge to do a background check on someone or asking for proof via PM/VM etc.

    I think the hatscript idea would work well though

    The problem with Skype is people can impersonate you using similar characters to your Skype username which can cause problems.

    Easiest way to not get scammed is to get proof that they are who they say they are (VM from them, vice versa)

    Someone suggests a sticky thread on how to prevent getting scammed and the only reason for not doing it is: "they wont read it anyway"?

    The poorest reasoning I've heard.
    Sometimes I warn a friend about things even though I thibk he probably wont listen to me, I did warn him and gave him the advice. Not to mention that the reason is just speculation. I'm willing to make it if others are too lazy however I have no idea how it works. So I might not be the best candidate...
