We should also make a similar list of common "digital goods" that may not quite qualify as scams but are pretty misleading in what they are or have the potential to become a scam or stop working but it may not be immediately obvious. The first thing that comes to mind is all of these "random steam key" sellers. These are usually selling useless keys that they have gotten through bundles or giveaways and aren't actually "random". What they do is pretend they don't know the games that the keys are for, even when they definitely do, and also advertise good games that are not actually obtainable. Same thing goes with many software keys or licenses, especially Adobe. These usually do not last longer than a couple of months before they are deactivated or revoked.

As is normal here, sadly this thread will be moved to "scam accusations" so no one who needs to see it would.  Scams are allowed to perpetuate forever here but these posts go into neverneverland.

If you see any threads in digital goods that are self moderated and/or locked, with an autobuy link inside, you know for sure that it's a scam. And it goes without saying that all of them promise really good deals that of course will not be delivered.

Most of these people are already tagged, yet I see a lot of people still falling for these scams.

It's quite simple, just use your common sense. Don't go without escrow in the digital goods or goods section of the forum. Autobuy links aren't escrow services, there is no way for you to recover your funds once you send it.

You should charge .0000000001BTC but have the buyer drop a penney in a collection box to officially make it a sale.

No. Just don't. At all. Trying to use escrow with these scammers might get someone scammed by a fake escrow.

Correct. Just dont buy anything at all from them.  Even if you use escrow, the scammer is likely to back out/disappear/not deliver and then you are left with the escrow fee.   Just avoid scammers altogether.

This is honestly pretty terrible, but in my opinion, if we made a thread about the most common ways of scamming with digital goods, it would have a fair chance of staying in that section as long as it was not directed towards any users in particular. Something sort of what I described in my previous post would probably get the green light by the mods, although of course, I can't be sure. If I have time later tonight I might do it myself, but it does get annoying to have the same sort of sales in there that for those of us who are experienced are obviously scams.

Just not allowing LOCKED or SELF MODERATED threads in the DIGITAL sections would resolve probably 75% of the problem.  Not all for sure ... but a lot more than the posts that no one reads anyway.

I don't think there is a conspiracy. Post a thread in Meta and ask why your thread was against the rules. As far as I can see there is no rule against but I might be wrong.

What would be good is to have a sticky with all the known scammers on it but they have to be proven scammers rather than a my word against his. Sometimes a trust rating in red writing isn't enough to warn people not to trade

Shhhhhh, don't bring it up. Ad revenue of the forum would drop dead if this place wouldn't welcome spammers/scammers and become clean. There is no intention to get rid of those people, we all know that....
