Thanks for taking the time to post this. This user seems to have scammed a number of people for small amounts. I have spoken to another user who also got scammed by this user for a small amount but didn't post any evidence because the amount scammed wasn't significant. However, the problem is, when these things go unreported and unnoticed, the scammer will continue to scam for as long as he's able to.

I feel like a lot of people gets scammed for small amounts on these forums all the time and most do not bother reporting it because the amount lost was insignificant to them. By reporting these scams, even if the amount is less than a dollar, it greatly helps hinder the scammer from being able to continue to do so.

While I left my negative rating for this user prior to any evidence being presented, I do prefer to leave ratings only when there is sufficient proof presented. If no evidence was presented I would have removed my rating or change it to neutral. I decided to tag this user as a scammer prior to the evidence because I personally had a strong feeling that he is indeed a scammer.

I guess the point I'm trying to make is, no matter how small or insignificant the amount you got scammed was, you should always report it to the community here just so others are aware. Most people don't really check the user's trust ratings page unless there's a big red negative with the "Warning: Trade with extreme caution!" tag.
