Hello,

Just started my first localbitcoins transaction/trade. I'm selling bitcoins to a buyer online via "Transfers with specific bank" and using the site's escrow service. I funded the escrow with my btc, but now I'm a little confused as to the meaning of the wording on the transaction dashboard/details screen and what I should do or look for at this point.

Specifically,

It says, Escrow status: Escrow enabled & funded. Safe to pay online.

One must admit this message (intended recipient is the buyer of bitcoins) can be very confusing for the seller. Maybe it should not be displayed to the seller at all, instead it should read: "wait for buyer to transfer fiat currency, only then release the escrow"

The localbitcoins user kagomeluvsu2 tried to scam me and wasted a bunch of my time.  He wanted me to send him a screenshot of our transaction "for security reasons".  Playing along I sent him the screen shot.  Then he had the balls to ask me to "click on the show button" and resend the picture.

His phone numbers are 281-891-3127, 913-200-1331 and 913-210-0571 in case anyone is interested.

Our family was terrorized by Homeland Security.  Read all about it here:  http://www.jmwagner.com/ and http://www.burtw.com/  Any donations to help us recover from the $300,000 in legal fees and forced donations to the Federal Asset Forfeiture slush fund are greatly appreciated!

If you block that user, add negative feedback describing the scam, and then report the buyer as fraudulent through the support and contact form it will minimize the risk that someone gets scammed.

This is the same user that got away with the same scam yesterday a few times.  He tried me (and failed) as well.  Yesterday he was using the ID sucraM, but he's still using the same phone number (bold and underlined in the quote).  Here are the posts discussing it:

In the "Price equation" field in your advertisement, can you not write an equation that pulls up the 24hr avg. price for a certain exchange?  Does the USD_24hr command only pull up the average USD price across all exchanges?

The reason I ask is because I noticed it didn't matter whether I tried to pull up cbxUSD or bitstampUSD while using the USD_24hr command.  It didn't change the price when I switched between the two.

Comparing with bitcoincharts,
Code:

seems to be what you are looking for. USD_24h is from here: http://bitcoincharts.com/markets/currencies/

Any way to see someone's OTC ID, even when that person doesn't have any OTC ratings yet?
It's hard to give someone the first rating that way ;-)
(Or did I really not find a *single* person with OTC and no rating yet? Come on, nerd community!)

People who have OTC IDs like me ( https://localbitcoins.com/accounts/profile/TheButterZone/ ) have to link them to LB via signing a one time pass with their OTC BTC address. There are some scammer bastards pretending to be in OTC like randomcat (fake) is to random_cat (real).

Yep!
But even when they linked their existing OTC handle to their LB profile, I believe it's not displayed until the OTC has a rating. Then you see the OTC handle and, well, the rating..

Maybe I'm doing it wrong and simply never stumbled upon a LB profile with OTC, but no OTC rating yet?

I dunno here.. Does anyone have such an account?

Cart before the horse. Why link your account before you have anything to show?

They should start by doing a deal over OTC while authed, get rated on OTC, then link OTC to LB. I guess you can ask the person on OTC to sign a message with their OTC key and message it to you over LB, verify it yourself, then you rate them on OTC...

I fully agree, this would be the normal and right way.
An easy shortcut would be to simply list their linked OTC handle, or a tiny "OTC" icon which links to it. ;-)
This probably saves some time for people, and costs just little time to implement.
If not, no big deal. I'll just wait for what Jeremias thinks of this :-)
