I was wanting to buy an Antminer S7 4.7TH/s. I've got contacted by BTC909 who's willing to sell me one. But after reading this post. I have my reservations in dealing with him, since, like me, he's also a newbie. Anyone can advise me on how I can purchase an Antminer?

what trading options do I have?

Thanks for the advise.

Use a well known and trusted escrow service (like - for instance - OgNasty, Blazed or PsychoticBoy)...

But - please - first check the user carefully to be sure you have the right one (status, trust, previous posts et cetera).

A popular way of scamming seems to be a newby (yes, noobs again, sorry... but true) who assumes a name similar to a trusted member's name...

Someone said it elsewhere: the hardcore usage of "sir" and/or "bro" seems to be done by scammers.

 i cannot see the use of "sir" and "bro", one of the other sure, but who walks around using sir and bro together, lol, just lightening the mood, sorry
There is no certain word that can make you considered as a scammer, therefire using of sir or bro didn't indicate a person as a scammer(usually). Actually, scammers are those who will let you realize that you can get more advantage than with them if both of you are going to deal. They will late you panic, to close the deal in order to make an very swift transaction. Never fall on their traps.
