    @Coinstop has discovered a way for the admins to work with Paypal on getting people's $ back from scammers. He's spent the last week writing and researching this method, and it looks like it's going to save some folks over $800 from the David Rogers scam.

    Thank you so much for the work!

    Going forward, we'll be using this method to make trading safer.

    Felony criminal charges being brought against him.
    Note to you scammers : Take it elsewhere.

    Also: The ECT Middle Man Service is available for all to use for better protection.

    Great work. If I had to choose between one or the other, I rather see this bastard in jail than get my money back.

    That is awesome guys. Going to have to agree that I would rather lose a couple hundred and an example be made of some people.

    For this to work does anything need to be changed in accepting payments? Are we still able to use friends and family for example?

    Friends and Family is still fine to use and is the most secure.

    Great job! I'm sure some of us are wondering: does this methodology work retroactively against scams that occurred within the past 3 to 6 months? @Coinstop

    Im assuming if the case has been marked as resolved with paypal then it wouldn't be viable.

    @Coinstop is this something you'd be willing to test so we know our parameters?
