    Seeing you're new here: some advice. There are scammers targetting WTB: don't buy from anyone that doesn't have a history here, or that wants to use anything other than Paypal Goods & Services, or some equivalent method where you are protected.

    It's sad, but it has been happening. Good luck in your hunt for your MB!
    Vintage. Cursive italic. Iron gall.

    Bravo!
    Well done @silverlifter
    IMO, all who post a "WTB" message should automatically get your message until we get this mess cleaned up.

    Specifically if someone sends you a PM saying they have one available and gives you an email address to contact then click on their ID name then View their Forum Posts and check that they have a number of posts on here that is significantly more than zero. If they have zero posts then press the report button (!) on their PM and report them to the admin. And whatever you do don't send them an email as that gives them your email address.

    Please don't forget to change this thread to sold by following these instructions if you don't know how to do it.

    (Then people will know to not come to it when they have one available)

    Well, you just described me, exactly. On another (the other?) forum, I--as a post count zero noob--responded to a WTB request with a PM that included my email and a picture of several pens I'd like to get rid of. He simply replied that he was looking for something else. No harm, no foul, no small animals burst into flame, and nobody went to jail (at least not yet).

    In my opinion, every member of this group at one point or the other was a newbie. I guess the scammers on the platform ruined every form of trust one could have for as a buyer or as a seller. But sensitizing new comers would go a long way. Thanks guys. Looking forward to more from this forum.

    Every form of trust? Give us a break! You need not resort to exaggeration just to pound home your point. People who've started threads in the WTB forum have been targeted more often lately, and some scammers have had success turning geeks into victims. Based on what's been happening, we are more cautious now. It may not be convenient, but consider our reticence a good thing.
