First and foremost, my apologies to any and all this may have affected. Was on vacation with the family and this all happened on the drive home somehow. Thanks for those that vouched for me. I didn't think my password was weak, but changed nonetheless. For others, I use web browser (duck duck go) and not tapatalk, though on vacation I made the mistake of logging into public wifi (just can't stay off of saddlehunter.com for that long apparently).
Set up duo authentication! And yea stay off public wifi lol

passwords with phrases are the strongest I.e “the blue doG @65“ sprinkle in a capitol letter, symbol and a couple numbers and you should be golden

You right. 3% isn’t going to break you and it keeps you from getting scammed out of the other 97%. I ordered a generator a couple of years ago that never showed up. I provided PayPal with the relative information and they gave me a full refund, no questions asked.
Agreed. The big red flag was when they tried to talk me out of G&S…

I don't want to get in trouble, but can share the email addresses they asked the money to be sent to... look like random accts...
Just curious. Most guys there names on Paypal are similar to there handel on here. Have a full name, or picture matching. Something. If it was some crazy number letter combo email like spam mail, then that can be a helpful marker..

It completely sucks that this forum even needs a thread like this. Now I know why some guys aren't responding to a forum lurker such as myself.
Oh well, here's free bump for an important thread and spam to up my post count :laughing:

Responding? You mean private messages or to your two posts?
private messages, I tried to buy a latitude saddle back in Sept and the guy kept bumping his thread with no response to PM's
I saw another comment about archerytalk stinking after it was updated... they used to have a feedback method for the classifieds. We don't have anything like that here?

Sux man but it’s the way of things. As the forum gets larger it attracts the wrong sort of attention. Stick around awhile, throw out some posts and folks will warm up.

Some people don’t pay attention/notice pms unless you post “pm sent” in the thread. Best to do both imo.

Here’s the deal. Post a bunch. Let people get to know you. Put some skin in the game and pony up fifteen bucks. I’m new. Joined in august. I’m a paid member and mostly stick to the trad forum. That’s my wheel house. My recommendation for you is to pull up a chair and chat a while.
