It seems to me that bitcoin trading is kind of like the online freelancer websites, you have to take time to build up a good reputation and sometimes start off with small jobs to earn peoples trust.
Facebook profile just tells you a person is on the internet it doesnt say what kind of person they are.
I have almost 10yr old ebay account with 100% rating same with at freelancer that should mean something in an ideal world internet.

I'm actually scared to death recently of how dangerous the market is becoming. I guess it's no different than carrying large amounts of cash and dealing like that, but it's still a whole new world. Good to have some of the advice given in this thread.

I would suggest the community develop standards for a "good business seal of approval" - particularly as it concerns transparency and responsibility.  While the anonymous feature of bitcoin is appealing in so many ways, it is not realistic to think that a currency can be successful in an ecosystem without trust and accountability.  If we are to develop legitimate financial and processing infrastructure, much of it will have to operate in a similar fashion to the bricks and mortar infrastructure we have built over centuries.

If you think it is not far off from "perfect" I think the biggest limitation of the currency is the electricity price. Where it won't be economical to mine, everybody will leave BTC and move to another cryptocurrency.

It certainly looks like e-currency community needs protocols for better security. Due to chargeback issues, at the moment it is very hard to convert between fiat and e-currency. I wish it becomes smoother quickly.

you can always use escrow if you need it...

This is not a review of SR .  We all know that everyone who uses SR they should use the escrow ..Still good info bro..You are correct but alot of people still get scammed bye people ,vendors who mandate that they FE.
That is the biggest red flag for me..

Great introduction into the dangers of the marketplace. It's a shame I can't encrypt each of my dollar bills.

Hmmm. I should not have read this thread right before going to bed. Now I won't be able to sleep. Putting my Bitcoins under my pillow does not seem to be an option.  Wink

Well you have to open up some time and be able to take risks, but majority of scammers are found out before mass amount of money is stollen. Always have details verified about them if your cautious i.e. request photo ID or something like that.

Noted. The bitcoin-otc folks also have some good protocols in place to attempt at protecting you from fraud. The wiki has a decent list of the risks associated with different payment types. The main thing I've learned is to stay very far away from all of the payment schemes that can easily be chargebacked unless I actually know the person. Paranoia seems to be rampant and justified given the nature of bitcoin transactions.
