SCB and Imperium members, Just like many Markets, SCB has had some issues related to scams, scammers, fencers, and all-around unseemly characters showing up on our forums and attempting to scam members or fence stolen products upon the entire Star Citizen Base (SCB) community. Because of SCB’s status as being both a Star Citizen-focused community AND the home of Imperium, we strive to make sure our community is as informed as possible when it comes to things related to the Grey Market. So, without further rambling, here is a quick and simple guide to the standard “dos” and “don’ts” and “understoods” of the Grey Market. (Spoilers show the "Why") 1. ALL TRANSACTIONS CONCERNING VIRTUAL GOODS ARE INHERENTLY HIGH RISK. 2. DON’T EVER PURCHASE FROM SOMEONE IF THE DEAL SEEMS “TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE”. (Unless it’s a “trusted” seller) 3. DON’T BUY FROM UNKNOWN SELLERS. 4. DO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE DELAYED PAYMENTS THROUGH PAYPAL. 5. DO MAKE SURE THAT THE BUYER IS VERIFIED AS A SELLER AND THROUGH PAYPAL. 6. IF YOU ARE SUSPICIOUS OF A TRANSACTION, CANCEL IT. 7. TAKE PRECAUTIONS THROUGH YOUR BANK. 8. USE COMMON SENSE. 9. THE SCB FORUM AND THE IMPERIUM FORUM ARE NOT THE SAME. 10. IF YOU SERIOUSLY DO NOT FEEL YOU SHOULD GET IT, DO NOT GET IT!!!! FINALLY, REMEMBER THAT ALL ONLINE MARKETPLACES-INCLUDING THIS ONE-ARE NOT LIABLE FOR YOUR PROBLEMS. That having been said, we are not there all the time, we are not able to police all the time. We are all volunteers. All people who are just trying to create a great community. SO IF YOU SEE SOMETHING SUSPICIOUS, CLICK THE “REPORT” BUTTON AND SAY WHY. WE WILL CHECK AND DETERMINE IF IT IS WORTHY OF NEEDING CHECKED. Thanks all, and happy sells/buys!
