    I've be aware of a seller that has been selling multiple racquets and re-listing many times over the past 6-12 months or so. Having looked at the photos of the racquets my opinion are they are fake but as I cannot be 100% sure so I have refrained from naming this member.

    I have suggested before, that something needs to be done about people signing up on here solely to list items for sale.

    That's why I have refrained from buying stuff overseas and even in the US (on the buy/sell forum). Cuz not everyone is as nice as you think they are.

    I have bought and sold stuff on this buy/sell forum. My rule of thumb is to look at the post count. If it's less than 10...chances are they aren't real badminton fans and are just wanting to make a quick buck. And I look at when they joined (ie. joining same month and selling same month) and their post history.

    I prefer to buy it face-to-face and locally. If I can't...then it wasn't meant to be. I prefer to be out-of-luck than out-of-cash.

    That's a good rule of thumb to follow, however there are people like me who lurks the board more than actively post. People who has a high post count can just be spamming the forum with nonsense and not contributing.

    The best way to do business is to do it face to face. That way you can inspect the product to ensure the racquet is legitimate and authentic.

    Face-to-face is the best option.

    You have a low post count but have joined 2 years ago. Doesn't really seem to fit the category of just joining and trying to scam someone on the buy/sell forum. It's a judgement call.

    Don't mean to be rude but, you are not exactly being fair or doing any favors for genuine sellers by not naming the said rogue trader and making a splash here. Perhaps for every one of fake sellers there are a hundred of other valid sellers who loves badminton as much as we all do.

    Maybe be a little bit more considerate / responsible to others and give us your full story? Anyone can point their fingers and one lining the forums.

    I am sure your intentions are pure and just but right now with what little information you have given us I'd say: Let the witch hunt begin.

    Forgive me, but something doesn't quite add up on this thread.

    Started by a person who has just 6 posts since last year... CD, does your rule of thumb apply here?
    "Liked" by a person who has just registered on the forum, no other posts by this new member.
    No clear evidence or mention of the fake seller; hope it's not a smear campaign.
    A thread with no substance to the "Warning" has within a few hours already become a Sticky. Now that makes absolutely no sense.

    Waiting for your responses....

    No one wants to be cheated. However, if you are going to warn people about a particular cheat or scammer, it is only fair that you provide specific information rather than just a general warning about "a seller, who is also a new member selling fake rackets around this section "

    Also, remember that the online community means anyone in the world. Therefore, even though you, and some MAS members may instinctively "know" who you are referring to, the others do not yet know. If the scammer is an active member and you know for sure, why don't you provide the information?
