Not sure what the protocol is here, but take a look at the lender and receiver in this thread:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=136346

furrycoat and SouthernComfort seem to make a new connection and exchange coins.  Then a user discovers a bitcoin transaction between the two of them three days earlier.

Obviously they are creating false transactions to build trust.

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to Prayer Messages (PMs).

Scammer tag or not, the lesson should be that someone better have a handful of good transactions before you consider trading before they can even be considered reputable. Otherwise, escrow is always a safe move.

 Huh  That is the scam these two were trying to pull - they were trying to build up a reputation through dishonesty.

I'm guessing the mods will not consider this a scam, this guy's nonsense was immediately identified and he wasn't able to use it to fool anyone. I'm sure he'll create a new account and try again. If not, there are apparently enough of us who are bored enough to link back to this kind of shenanigans when they try to trap a real person.
