Insist on using Escrow and it doesn't matter who you trade with.

I wouldn't trust any of them and they're all likely trying to scam you. There are plenty of trusted buyers/sellers here but for those who aren't like mark said use an escrow. You'll soon find out who's trying to scam you when you insist on using one.

I would say that any newbie account trying to do business with another newbie account is a scammer.

Find the fire hydrant in my Avatar for a prize.

Try to work with members that have a foundation of trust and previous transaction.

You are rolling the dice dealing with those kind of members from PM

rank is one of the important factor to look at
but the most important thing is, use escrow for every transaction for a safe transaction

here is the list for escrow incase you need them for future transaction

ecurrencyxchanga.com, wm-center.es, or ANY "exchange" based off Blogspot.com are all scams.

Recommended Exchanges: Binance.com | CelsiusNetwork
GPG ID: 4880D85C | 1% Escrow | 8% IPO/ICO Escrow services Temporarily Closed | Bitcointalk is the ONLY place where I use this name (No Skype/IRC/YIM/AIM/etc) | 13CsmTqGNwvFXb7tD9yFvJcEYCDTB8wQTS | Beware of these SCAM sites! | *Sponsored Link

You may want to see the thread created by Tomatocage. You can get some of the answers to your question there. Thread : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=137288.0. Try to use escrow except trustworthy persons.

Insist on using Escrow and it doesn't matter who you trade with.

Escrow list here -

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=108716.0

The list isn't updated though the last edit was on February 20. Updated list : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=855778.0.

Using escrow is the finest solution if you feel you are trading with a scammer.

Using escrow is the finest solution if you feel you are trading with a scammer.
The OP was receiving was receiving messages to conduct business on various websites so escrow would not really be possible in those cases. If you are dealing with a website then you kinda need to deal directly with the site. This is one thing that makes doing business outside the forum dangerous.

As mentioned above all the suggested sites are probably not sites that you want to do business on, at least if you don't want to get your money stolen.
