ghostflower8 is a scammer - I busted him/her!! Yeah for me!
This is the msg. I sent this person once they PM'd me and I verified they were a scammer. They insisted that I pay them on green or they would not trade. So when they went green I asked the website if their green was legit and of course they were not. Watch out in here for anyone who insists they be paid on green. If they usually are not willing to wait for you to ask the website if they are legit, pretty good chance they are trying to scam you!
[quoted10adbaa13="ghostflower8"]why not pay me yet?[/quoted10adbaa13]
You are a scammer. This is the msg. I got back from this site on YOU!

Unfortunately, they are not. The user has attempted to create and pursue multiple accounts.
You Suck! and I busted you. hahahaha
evil evil evil evil evil
Nice job Asuperstar!! Thumbs up! I sent this trader a PM but never got a response.....whew! Twice I have requested verification from the site and both times the other trader completed offer fraud. One of those was JennyH which I did pay though.... stupid me!
Yeah, I saw this one too and the insistance of payment on green, not to mention the horrible grammar, sent up red flags in my mind.
Great job!! +karma for your brave act of public service lol
Now I'm even more convinced about paying after approval!
I'm only paying on approval at this point. I can't afford to lose money to a scammer
Sigh, way to tarnish the name of "ghost". Another fallen comrade T_T
Hey thanks for the Karma, you guys rule! I was so excited about busting this person, didnt think it would get me karma. I thought that I was saving alot of people from getting scammed as she/he had a TR of 0, so I'm for sure that they would have scammed many people. She/he didnt get me!!! So glad I asked for approval. Sent the site a msg. thanking them for taking the time to verify this person. Because this site does this for us, flashipod site, they saved me $20.
I got PM'd too. Insisted on payment on green. I said only on approval. They wrote back and said no. I only pay on approval for newbies now. Once they pass approval, I will pay them on green. Not before. I have been screwed too many times.
It's very hard to get refs when there are so many people paying on green, but I'd rather have it take me longer and not get scammed.

Thats where I'm at now too.
Great job! This person also pmed me asking if i pay on green, threw up red flags. So I went with someone else. +Karma!
Damn I busted scammers everyday for months and never got KMA, lol (sigh)
you just got some from me )
Me too 8)
I also switched to pay on approval for couple of my sites....I hear way to much about scammers our there. Cept to the people I already know.
I am now only paying on approval for first trades with newbies. Once they pass approval, I will pay them on green. I don't get as many as I used to, but the ones I get usually complete multiple sites and I can trust them, so its worth it to me.
Well the typing kind of gave it away for me, everyone should take note when people type all retarted thats something is up )

Seems like the ones that really deserve it are the ones that dont ever ask for it. So Im sending you a Karma point. Thanks again. (Fred)

He made a post about me being a scammer. It was funny, because the people that have traded w/me and others who have not traded with me yet pretty much laughed at him like he was some kind of joke. He is!
It's great that asuperstar busted someone. It sucks that they are being called out as a scammer themselves. WTF???
OMG I did just read that thread from ghostflower. WTF country is that person from? I have never seen such bad English!
