Dealing with members with zero posts or by TRADE MESSAGE
#21
Have the person reply to a post or start one before trading. Too many bad trades from members with ZERO posts.

It happened again, Make the trader post in the forum. 90% of bad trades happen from repeat offenders and they use the PM or trade messaging system to get you. I think I may have had 2 people over the last year ask about a trader BEFORE MAILING out if he was on the bad trader list.

I am yet anther older trader that is just getting back into trading total newbie dealing with forum posts but anyway...
I have a question. When I first subscribed to beckett to trade cards way back when the main reason why I paid the high subscription fee was it stated that your trades were guaranteed and that if you were ripped off Beckett themselves would inform local authorities to deal with the theft. So that was a lie? I honestly thought the cost was so high because you were paying for the insurance of trading. so what am I paying for? So this was a fraudulent statement?
I feel like a sucker.

I don't recall Beckett ever saying that. You are paying for the proprietary information that Beckett has collected and the systems they have put in place. USPS and local police would be your responsibility to contact (or the FBI as mail fraud is a federal offense).

However, don't be discouraged by some people's bad experiences. I've made over 350 trades on here and only one went bad. But that one was eventually made right by the other member. I know my profile puts me at 349 trades, but I've made several through PM's with members I completely trust.

There are a bunch of excellent and completely trustworthy members on this site. You just need to know who you are dealing with at all times. That's the point of the Trade and Feedback features. Feedback lets you know who all that person has dealt with and how things went. The trade feature gives you proof of an accepted trade (as well as personal info of the other member - name and address).

Are these the same people that send money to the Prince in Algeria so that he can bring a bunch of cash to America??!

I just don't think there is any amount of warning that can help the (gulp) naive or ignorant.

It would be great if beckett could make it so that when I add someone to my "Ignore" list in my control panel that they would then be unable to send me trade requests. Any idea if this is something being worked on?
