Sellers: Beware the "false buyer" scam

BEHAVIOR from “Buyer”:

  1. Requests a large amount of XMR.
  2. Posts a comment in the chat window.
  3. Disappears.

The person I suspect had a new account with no trade history, and requested my limit. I waited 24 hours before canceling and reporting here.

Buyer hopes Seller clicks Release (instead of Cancel), causing accidental delivery of XMR.

Please PM the accountID you suspect and I’ll reply with the accountID I suspect. We can then compare and validate suspicions before reporting any “match” to LM admins.


Unless you ask for ID from 1st time buyers to identify them, I think declining to deal with zero trade history people requesting limit purchases may solve the problem.
