Geeze! I wonder how many people this guy got.

Things like this happening are actually somewhat of an argument to remove/relax PM restrictions as doing so would have less business that originates here be finalized on places like skype

But wait, in your feedback in says you scammed someone for over $500. I'm guessing you're lurking the Scam Accusation forum to see if there are any threads about yourself? I ended up here cause I had to post a warning about an imposter.

You should probably PM a mod or admin. Someone who can look into that and resolve it for u. Unless you actually scammed them, in that case you probably wouldn't want to attract the attention of a mod. Best of luck with that.

Could you link me to where it says that? Cause if you can prove feedback to be false/misleading you should be able to dispute it to get it removed. In any case, please link.

I can confirm that mods do not remove any feedbacks at all. Most mods/admins have got false negative feedbacks too from multiple people. People like Vod/Tomatocage who call out scams get the most false feedbacks Wink . Anyhow, feedback left by untrusted people do not show up in default, so that's not a big deal.

Anyone trusted by a member of depth x is in depth x+1

By default the level to which you see is set at 2. It means that feedback of members tilll level 2 will show up in th trust score by default. They will be trusted feedback for you.

You can use your own trust list instead of the provided Default Trust list.

There is one exception to this rule. Trust rating spam. If someone posts multiple ratings with the same context, they will be removed. That is what theymos told me (and did) after I got spammed with negative feedback from a scammer.

Many people do not follow "best practices" when it comes to trading. They are too used to being 'protected' by their credit card companies.

I do think the fact that the name mentioned "bitcoin talk" is pretty much a giveaway that the account is not backed by the "real" john k
