First of all, i'm sorry for my bad english.

When i'm reading in this sub-forum (Meta), I read some posts that are reporting about some account selling their other account. Usually they use small account to sell bigger account. But if there is a seller who actually doesn't own the account that he sells, and someone in this forum sees that post and he starts to report about that seller, and both of the seller account and the account that he's going to sell get neg trust.

Example, A (name of a person) hates to someone (B), and then he thinking how to destroy B's account, and he decided to makes a post that tell (A) is going to sell (B) account. So (B) will get neg trust from this forum user and sure it will make B's account looks like a bad guy.

So my question is, how you know if a seller really own the account that he's going to sell before you give neg trust to both of them?

I hope you guys understand with what I mean

It doesn't often happen that the name of the account to be sold is mentioned.  Do you have a specific example of this happening or are you just throwing out a hypothetical?  I ask this because there's a good chance I would have tagged all parties involved, though I've gotten no complaints about something like this happening.

Anybody who expresses interest in buying an account is going to get tagged anyway.  Doesn't matter if the account is actually for sale, because if it isn't that member is likely going to find another account to buy, and that's shady.

Like TP said, no one mentions the account name to be sold if the seller is serious about selling. It would be stupid to put any account for sale from a newbie account openly as people would ask for a signed message. Moreover, the owner if seeing's his account on sale would immediately post in that thread about it. DT's don't just go around tagging account sellers without verifying things.

I'm just asking for the worst case if something like that happens. And know i know what will happen if that happens. I will lock this thread. Thank you for the answer, Pharmacist and jantsen.
