Ok so I know using CC and paypal are no no's for sellers because of scammers.


So what about for us new/low feedback people? Is moneypak/sending it first the easiest and no hassle way to deal with another member (that's trustworthy)?

How does moneypak work anyways? I know I buy a $5 card thing, put money in it and how do I send it to the seller? What are the ways to help ensure I don't get scammed?

The easiest way is probably coinbase You just signup enter in your bank info and coinbase will do 2 small transactions to confirm it's your account, After that you are good to go you can fund your account via ACH withdraws from your bank, It only takes a few days.

The other way is dealing with individual sellers but you are more likely to be scammed that way.

I like to stay away from transferring through my bank, I'll just look for good feedbacked sellers.

I believe they still offer the bonus if you sign up via an affiliate link for coinbase. Mine is in my signature =)

scamming is the quickest way to get bitcoins. the second quickest method is extortion. the third quickest method paypal. the fourth quickest method is moneypak. the 5th quickest method is coinbase or campbx, the 6th quickest method is mining the seventh quickest method is faucets, and the final, slowest method is Mt. Gox.

My negative trust rating is reflective of a personal vendetta by someone on default trust.

Am I protected from scammers this way? so if I have a receipt showing the deposit I can be protected?

Yes, with LocalBitcoins.com, the seller has the Bitcoins automatically escrowed by the LB.com system. Once your payment is marked received, the Bitcoins are released. If there's any issues they will step in. There's really no way to cheat the system that I can see. Just save your receipts.

If you are searching for a method of payment that will guarantee against being scammed, there isn't one. The best guarantee is to either conduct the transaction in person with the seller or deal through a company that has a good reputation.  Each option entails an additional cost so you will need to decide what you are willing to pay for your coins: loss of privacy or higher dollar amount plus time spent.  If you must transact with a person remotely, use an escrow service. In the near future another option might be Coinsigner or something similar.

Check out OTC (over the counter). Used in tandem with the WoT you can make reasonable calls about who to trade with.

If you're interested in BTC as well as other coins like LTC or PPC, use Coin Market - https://www.coinmkt.com/

Easy to get USD in & out, and the ID verification takes only a few minutes.

I have had luck using coinvisitor. You just load a moneypak card and plug the numbers into the site. I have yet to determine their hours of operation so be prepared to wait a couple hours. Also, moneypaks need to be purchased with cash so hit up an atm before buying one. Good luck!
