We moderators work hard to weed out as many of the scammers as possible. Recently, we had scammers trying to push a fraudulent website. We got rid of the original post, but I had to kick out a new member who was trying to push the same site by plugging it in a comment to an existing thread. Point is, the scammer website problem outlined in this article is not some theoretical thing out there in the far reaches of the internet, it has already impacted this forum. While we do all we can to weed scammers out, the content is at the members risk. That has been reiterated on the classifieds being buyer beware and at the users risk, but it also goes for any advice a member chooses to use or ignore, along with any link a member might click on. That said, this article outlines things to look for to attempt to validate a website that may be new to the user. Also, one thing I have noticed as a red flag for people pushing a fraudulent website is they will post what amounts to the same glowing comment in a couple different threads, so while this isn’t the only thing to look for, it has been an indicator.
