Subject:         website format to reduce fraud
Date: June 15, 2012 at 9:32 pm PST

I've been experiencing a problem with getting curriculum from a seller I
paid a month ago, and it has left me skeptical from purchasing from other
sellers on this board. It's such a shame because I've bought several
items from this site, but that was a $60 item and I can't afford to lose
that much again.

I stumbled across, and they also have a for sale
forum. I really like their website set up, and I've used a coupon board
that is set up just like it before. It shows how long a user has been a
member, and they can receive feedback on their profile for items they've
sold or traded. They are also not allowed to post for sale until they
have 50 other posts on their site (which I realize might not be feasible
on this site), and that helps you know whether the person is a scammer who
doesn't really homeschool because you can read their posts. It's also
nice to see how long they've been a member, because you know they have
been invested in the site for awhile, and would have had membership
revoked had they scammed people. The moderators also watch for ebay
sellers and professional sellers and remove their posts. On a site like
this, you could also revoke membership for those insisting you pay via
personal method, which I now realize is against paypal policy (and thus
dishonest). That would cut out a huge amount of scams.

I'm not sure where to put this feedback to the website moderators, but I
think it would really help cut back on scammers if some of these things
were implemented. I also believe it would help the website grow rather
than lose people buying and selling from lack of trust.
