My idea is to implement a reputation score starting at 0 for newly created accounts. They can post anywhere but in the Markeplace section and can't send PMs. Whenever a member finds a post worthwhile, they can click on the button near the post to give some reputation points to its author. While a member has a reputation score < n, the Marketplace section and PMs are off limits to him/her.

In order to avoid abuse, newly created accounts have a reputation power (the number of rep points left on each click) of 0, so that scammers can't create multiple accounts with the sole purpose of giving each other rep points.

Also, each member category may have a different reputation power: x for Jr Members, y for Members, z for Sr Members, etc.

This way only people with a minimum threshold of quality contribution to the forum are entitled to the Markeplace section and PMs = 95% of scam attempts instantly gone.

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.

I think if you use a reputable escrow or don't send money to newbs you'll eliminate more than 95% of scams already. No amount of systems put in place will ever stop idiots throwing their money away and this system could even just give a false sense of security.

I laughed when this thread loaded with a Ponzi banner ad. This forum is overrun with scammers already and unless the admin attitude toward scams changes it will stay that way.

We can't stop scams anyhow the only thing we can do to reduce the scams a bit on the forum and keep the forum clean is by restricting the newbies again !!!

When hero/vip/senior members or whatever scam with ease, I don't really think a reputation system will help.
