    I hope you have something better in regards to spam, fakes, and thiefs. If you do you could have the "go to site" and do very well, if not good luck.

    The site requires all members to use their callsigns, so we can use it to identify them and recommends PayPal for payments because it provides protection for the seller and the buyer but it is not required in order to buy or sell.

    As far as emails go and spam, your email address is private.

    It's not idiot proof, it's like any other site including this one.

    So Besides call sign, how can you verify the identity of the seller/buyer?

    You can't, just like anywhere else.. here, ebay, wherever. That is up to the user.

    It's like asking you to prove to me, you are who you say you are.

    Can you do that?

    IMO, the most important thing is the security of the payment method.. which is why the site recommends PayPal.

    I don't really care who you are, but if I buy something from you I will use PayPal because it provides me and you with full protection.

    This is just a reminder that the $10.00 New Member credit ends on opening day which is in 2 days, the 12th of December. So if you are thinking of joining the site you may want to do it now and get the $10.00 credit which does not expire and can be used at any time.. This way it costs you nothing to try out the auction site and sell a few items.
