In order to improve the Fraud Forum, we've split it into two sections:
The Private Resolution Forum is where you will post your complaint about problems with a Howard Forums member/merchant, or if you suspect a member to be a returning scammer. Note that only the thread starter and the moderators can view the threads created in this forum. If the complaints are not addressed in a timely manner, it will be considered to be a fraudulent transaction and the thread will be moved into the main Fraud Forum to alert the community.
The Fraud Forum will house public announcements. Members will not be able to create new threads here. You will only be able to reply to existing threads, ones that either came from the Resolution Forum or created by Moderators to alert others of a returning scammer.
Here are some guidelines to keep in mind when posting anywhere in the Fraud Forum. Please...
- Stay within topic and refrain from posting irrelevant thoughts or messages that do not contribute to the thread's topic.
- Do not utter threats at members or incite violence, no matter how tempting it may be. These posts will be removed/edited out.
- Post clear, factual information. Use your posts to report any solid evidence you may have that will assist in finding scammers.
- Please contact us if you see something suspicious. This forum is a community of members watching out for each other: your vigilance helps everyone.
The Fraud Moderators are here to keep threads concise and remove posts when necessary. Threads tend to grow into a number of pages and some readers do not want to wade through page after page of posts that do not really offer insight on the situation.
Your help and cooperation is much appreciated.
