BTW. Using Gmail is a major give away for scammers. If anything comes to me with a gmail account I trash it.

Many of us use Gmail, that alone isn't a dead giveaway.

Creating repetitive posts, deleting things at random and requiring only strict communication protocols be followed is a bigger red flag to me.

I respectfully disagree as you'll find that an exceptional number of scams are run out of the country using gmail as a non trackable cover email address. Specific "protocols" in communication keep details of business transactions out of the open forum.

>>Gmail user here<<

Well, I guess 747 and I won't be doing any business.

None of the "free" e-mail services are readily verifiable. What am I supposed to use, my corporate (work) e-mail?

Your right none of them are truly verifiable. Doing business with anyone is a conscious decision.

Handwritten correspondence and wax seals apparently. :)

use of Gmail
 
I also use Gmail as I cannot use my US Government or Corporate email address' during the duty day to conduct personal business. However I either post my address on the forum or provide it in a PM to receive pictures or discuss a transaction.

So I take the chance of being ignored by some on the forum, or hope that my non fractured use of the English language, or the fact that I have an accessible profile on this forum will allay the fears of skeptical forum members.

And here I thought the scammers were limiting themselves to ripping people of in the used car scams on Craig's list.....

I also use Gmail as my paypal acct address and have done several transactions with various members here.

I only use hotmail and have had that account since 1990. Never used a single internet providers supplied account.
