Now I am aware this is not the Invites section but I have had 2 reports today and I think this might need to be said here.
If a member has no Stars under their avatar YOU SHOULD NOT TRADE WITH THEM, They are brand new here and if they are trading it is not in the Invites section because if they have no stars then they do not have access to the BT Invites section yet and are most likely to be scammers. For those of you that do not yet have access to the Invite section one of the section guidelines in there looks like thisDo NOT Trade Invites Through PM Prior To
- Clicking a member's name and selecting View Public Profile.
- Reading some of their posts to get familiar with them.
- If possible check their profile at mutual torrent sites.
- Checking they have a star under their avatar.
If there's no star DO NOT reply to any messages you've received.
They don't have access and shouldn't be asking for invites.
Make a Report in the Report Section for Staff to look into.
There you can paste the message you received.
So if someone sends you a PM about trading and they have no stars
DON'T TRADE WITH THEM.
Guys lets be honest many many people come here to scam the good users of FST so use your heads and a little common sense. I was a trader when I first got here and I got scammed my fair share of times and I still remember the 5hitty feeling of it all, so I feel for good members who get scammed but when I get reports of people trading and not checking out the people who they are trading with it's a bit frustrating because if you trade with someone with no stars and 1 or 2 posts not even in the BT section that means you weren't even paying attention and didn't even take the time to check the guy out. In short if someone scams you we the staff are here to help via the report section but we need you to at least make an attempt to protect yourselves and try and know who you are trading/giving away to here. Please use your heads when you deal with anyone not just here but in your daily lives as well. Good luck to all
