Activation on the Marketplace will be turned back on today.

Recently some TH users have been victimized by scammer(s) who know a bit about trumpet, but don't be fooled!

* Speak to the buyer/seller on the phone
* Make sure they know what they're talking about
* Don't pay using PayPal 'friends & family'
* When in doubt, insist on using escrow.com - scammers will never agree to this

* Lastly, be very cautious of new members. Recent scammers have created a number of new accounts to sell things, posting the minimum of 5 posts (some of which may be removed), and then posting items for sale.

Be careful out there!

Hi Moderator(s),

I hope this wasn't posted somewhere else or in the FAQ as I did some searching before posting. How does one go about resetting their pin for the marketplace? I'm currently locked out and I feel like I've looked everywhere for the answer.

The only one who can help is the sysadmin. PM user trumpetherald.

Should be caught up on those now! Let me know if you haven't received your PINs.

Are there other options to verifying that someone is a real person instead of having them post five comments on the message boards?

How about increasing the post requirement to 25 posts and adding a wait period of a month before allowing Marketplace privileges? I think that would eliminate the vast majority of the scammers.

What about people that have problems with their accounts? I was logged out of my account and can't possibly get back in.

Moderators, I have run into a problem with 2 separate scammers/spammers. One being Saxophonist56 as he purchased my Adams A1 trumpet and returned it after agreeing to no refunds. I was and now am out $2000 because of this incident. Also, a user names Matt4885 who has been posting the same posts over on the market place on a daily basis. Thanks!

The Moderators have nothing to do with the Marketplace. Contact the sysadmin via PM or email, username trumpetherald. It may take a few days for him to get back to you.
