Its up to the Purchaser to make damm sure you know who your sending money too. Do your research, dont use a wire at all unless again you know who your sending your hard earned money too. Use payments that have built in safeguards if you dont receive what you paid for. Dont take anything for granted because there's very smart bad internet people out there that will steal you blind. Its happening here quite a bit so be very careful!

But as someone suggested, why not have the $25 fee be paid $10 by Paypal and $15 by credit card. Wouldn't that at the very least make it easier to trace people and harder to create a fake identity? Other than perhaps $1 or $2 of extra processing fees for TRF, this seems pretty simple. And of course, TRF could up their Patron fee to cover the extra cost.

And what happens when that credit card was a Visa pre-paid gift card? Will then there be an outcry for the mods to verify each credit card before accepting payment?

Obviously Iím all in favor of a safe environment. But I think you have to remember that this isnít ebay. Scammers will find ways to buck the system as much as they can. No safeguards can replace a cautious buyer doing their own due diligence.
