I think someone just tried to scam me like this:

My PM to them:
15GM6k3HPvPJJKRUfqbveNxYfcKQwsnNmQ

Thanks!

Notice that the address they said I sent to is different than the real address. If I wasn't saving all of my sent PMs and they deleted the message I sent to them, my PM with the real address wouldn't exist in the database and I wouldn't be able to prove that they changed the address.

It's a good idea to save all of your sent PMs. There's an option in your profile to do this by default.

Theymos, would it be possible to have a "deleted" folder in the PMs so that I could keep my inbox clean but still have a record of what's going on?

Not a perfect solution, but you can create a "deleted" label, label your deleted posts with "deleted', and then remove the "Inbox" label on them.

I keep all of my PMs in my inbox and label the unhandled ones to distinguish them from the others. (I have 107 pages in my inbox. Smiley )

Is there a method by which you can get the PMs you send automatically emailed to you? in which case a GPG signed message or a simple sha sum of the message body in the header and entered as part of the message id or as an X-header [X-PM-SHAHASH: 1458eb... ) That can then be looked at in message logs to verify time and date in case of dispute.

He did eventually pay to the correct address, so maybe this was somehow not intentional. I can't imagine how it could have happened, though.

The forum doesn't support that now. It's not a bad idea, though I don't want to code it.

Should the option in your profile to do this by default by on by default? Smiley

This is my fault, system works fine.
 
That address 1HE3ycm... is my paying address. > i paid from 1HE3ycm  -address to your 15GM6..  -address and somehow i accidentally changed/messed up the addresses when i reply to you.

I can not understand how i did it, but i'm very very sorry about this address-mess Huh

Blockexplorer agrees, although I still wonder how that could have happened.
