Can you also add title format for the same.

Something like :

Type : Scam alert / Scam Accusation
Scammer name : Scamer profile name ( real name if known ) / company name ( company webiste url if known )
Scam status : Scammed / Tried to scam / Scamming / phishing
Amount : if amount involved

So title will be : Scam accusation : Pirateat40 ( Trendon Shavers ) Scammed 1XXXX BTC

You can come up with something better.

In general it will help people to go through title better and will get involved parties bad SEO.

Thanks

Nice suggestion but i doubt people will spend time on doing that when many of them don't even use this format. But i'll add this into main post.

Worth considering the scammer is using another person's identity. I've had a case where someone comes many months later and wants something removed on the forum due to it being the first result on Google (and allegedly, their identity was stolen by some type of online game griefer who thought it'd be funny to scam in their name).

Imagine if Joey was not Joey but Bob, and Bob dislikes Joey. Everyone was sending unpaid pizza deliveries to Joey who did nothing wrong (except piss Bob off).

Don't mix your coins someone said isn't legal

What happened::
I saw [blah blah]. I think he's a big liar and a scam artist. Stay away from him.

I'd recommend to keep the "I think" stuff completely out of the report or at least separated from the actual facts.

I think if one understood for giving false blames, to protect innocent side, you can apply a ban for blamer side. This way we can block false positives.

Learn the kids that scam reports based on "notepad story" based on no screen proofs means nothing and that's just false speculating.
I am having great laugh daily by reading everyone reporting threads.
Peoples should start learn how to report a scammer,because things they have in mind (based on no proofs) its just bullshits.
When there is a scamm,you should provide all the evidence based on screenshots or your story is same as reading "yellow" news paper...

Before you think anything bad agaisnt me based on the abused trust system,check out the link which will redirect you to the reasons why i have negative trust.
There is many proofs how the btctalk trust system is abused by trollers for no reason.

Try to contact staff/moderator, they will help you. But why do you need to contact them? If your message is considered as a spam, I don't know what they do. It is better to post or reply unless it is private thing related to forum.

I paid $60 for a virtual credit card on 1 November 2014. Two weeks later I have received nothing despite several emails to the company to which I have not even had a response.

The company in question is

who are clearly scammers.

Okay here's how I got scammed and feel like a dumb ass  Sad

I sent Shdvb a PM wanting to sell 5BTC. Didn't get a response so posted on the thread

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=583572.0

I get a PM from Shdvb with his price and where to send it. Was rushing out the door with my son to go to the park and sent the BTC over. Literally seconds after sending it I realized it was a scam account with an apostrophe at the end and zero posts. No one to blame but myself. $3000 down the drain to some scumbag.

1. You are still in the wrong thread. You want Scam Accusations.
2. You were not scammed by the account you list.
3. I find it hard to believe you did not see the huge, red letters from his PM warning that your soon to be scammer was a newbie:
"!!! WARNING: This user is a newbie. If you are expecting a message from a more veteran member, then this is an imposter !!!"
I advise you to post in the correct place, remove the person you wrongly accused and stop trading ASAP.

When the subject of buying BTC with Paypal comes up, I often remember this: 

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
