    There seems to be a lot of fake giveaways recently and I would like your opinion about that…
    A lot of new members have been offering amazing invites/accounts. There are however, serious doubts about that, since in most cases they have been searching themselves for such a rare invite recently…
    Of course they never announce the winner and they close the thread in order to not let anyone ask about who the winners were…

    Just a few examles of recent fake giveaways:
    https://filesharingtalk.com/vb3/f-bit...iveaway-200704
    https://filesharingtalk.com/vb3/f-bit...-s-away-201370
    https://filesharingtalk.com/vb3/f-bit...giveway-197239
    If you can remember more plz post them here.

    Why do you think they are doing this?
    -To become famous here?
    -To ridicule FST members that are asking for such an invite?
    -To use others' ratio screenshots as their own in order to scam people afterwards?
    -To earn rep. points?

    And finally what should be done about it?
    I think that everyone giving away invites should be obliged to announce the winners, or let the winners post that they have taken the invite.
    Of course, anyone found to have double accounts here, and “giving away” the invite to himself for show-off should be banned.

    These people may not scam someone off of his account, but they are certainly playing with the desire of many people here to get a rare invite…
    Let's see what you think about all this.

    I totally agree, I have taken part in 2 giveaways, and 1 still hasnt announced a winner which was 5 days ago when he posted it and he would announce the winner 1 day after the post...

    GOOD IDEA !!

    I posted in the second example and never received anything.
    I think they collect ratio proofs to scam at other boards or
    under different names.

    fake givaway's , and fake trade's also very bad

    such like when u offer something , u find someone reply u that he agree , but need ................

    u do , he demand other , u do , he demand other .........................................

    then , at least , tell u : "sorry , i found better offer '

    very bad situation realy , it happened to me here , and i searched for the topics of this guy , i found that they all seem to be fake giveaway's also , and he's not serious at any offer he do , i don't know realy what can we do with this people who fake us , and make us loose our time with out any reason , or any hope !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    why even warn them?
    I'm sure everyone realizes that a fake giveaway should not be created even as a joke...
    it isn't funny and anyways they probably aren't doing it for laughs but rather to get other people's ratio shots

    I say ban them after their first fake giveaway unless its an accident like their ratio dropped and their invites were taken and they didnt realize it

    It's annoying mostly, I think I can spot the fake ones after reading a couple pages of posts.

    Ban 'em I say also after a couple of these fakes, I hate wasting time reading crap.

    But as far as the idea that they are just trying to collect ratio screenshots, I don't buy it. It's too easy to find plenty of ratios just by clicking on people's signatures. I'm guessing the fakers are just losers who want a bit of attention, makes 'em feel special. Or hoping to scam an invite or two. Lame.
