Thanks Skip.I have an IOPTRON for sale on C/N and I recieved an email from a guy on C/N who said he liked the price and would send me a certified check and his friend would pick it up.I knew it was a scam so I refused and told him a postal money order or paypal and that stopped it.I tried to send a PM but couldn't figure out how.It would be nice and much easier if there was a section to go to where you could report it.anybody know how to report it? thanks

Hi donjoy

To send a PM - click on the member's name (as shown here)



then scroll down until you find the link for "send a private message"



As far as reporting someone goes, look for a Moderator or an Administrator (such as Tom Tussock, Greg K or Rick Rian) see here:



or



The 'A' in the yellow flag means "Admin" and the 'M' in the flag means 'Moderator'.

Same procedure, click on their name to send a PM.

I presume that you have seen this LINK so best send to either Tom or Greg as they are site Admins.

Hope this helps

Don,

Sorry to read you're having a problem, please follow this procedure when reporting a scam.

I await your PM with more details.
