    Just read through the Carloc debacle and have decided not to buy or sell through the forum anymore. Before the change to the new format some may remember me as a consistent buyer and seller of quality, vintage and scarce silver and gold. I just don't know anyone anymore and my previous good history has been wiped like a dirty arse by the update. I will lurk and add the odd comment but I am out of here as an active member.

    This has also happened from time to time throughout the history, this is rare but unfortunately nothing new or out of the ordinary given what we trade.
    Being more active might help you know the new people. Not all of us newer people are scammers.

    Haven't been active on this forum lately, but after reading the fake bar shenanigans, I can imagine why you would feel that way.

    Truely is a terrible situation. There are many many people who are safe to trade with on this site but 1 bad egg can cause much distrust. Thankfully we have many members (Spanner is a great example) who watchdog sales threads & ask the hard questions, very rare for one to slip past but you can't catch everyone.
    I really hope those affected recover funds by following the advise offered re: petty claims & fraud squad - make this scum pay.

    Thanks every one for the positive words. I was perhaps a little overdramatic (my wife's words). I cannot really stay away from the trades as I love the old and quirky stuff but I will certainly be very careful with any future dealings. I did sort of enjoy my pity party for one but onward and upward. Thanks guys.

    It wasn't wiped. The trade history was and still it split into buying and selling trades.
    The site went to a new system change or whatever and when the data was pulled over it all got bundled into one and not split.
    Nothing could have refined it apparently, but it's still all there.

    I was one of the victims in the Carloc debacle and I am still buying, although I am a bit more cautious now.

    I still love this forum.

    I see, so in stead of being split as before your history now is combines both buying and selling.

    Yes for anything before the change over. Anything trade feedback now can be place in either.
