As you quote 9/10, please don't forget the 1/10 who can ONLY use PayPal to buy BTC and that have no intention to charge back. Don't let some ruin it for others!

Agreed. At a point in time, scammers weren't prevalent like they are now. They used to be the minority, however as we all see they are the majority.

Their are a few of us out there who are legitimate, honest users who use (or only option is) Paypal.

Why doesn't the admin send a warning PM to all the new members when they sign up?

A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

This may help some users but you have to remember just how many new users ask how long they have to wait before being able to post elsewhere other than the newbies thread. If they take no notice of that are they likely to take advice to avoid scammers?.... Or even read a warning?
