After joining this forum I've come to realize that I am the flipper type; I think it's all part of the fun! I've done a number of private deals though this website, all of which turned out to be very pleasant. I recently took a plunge on my grail watch that was up for an honest price last week, and hopefully it will be at my door tomorrow without any problems.
Then I started thinking, if I keep flipping at this rate I may someday run into a rotten deal. And given that I'm trending towards buying and selling more and more expensive items, the chances of losing big money is inevitably increasing as well. Being new to this game, I want to ask you experienced folk here, how often do you think deals on WUS are in fact scams? (either in percentage terms or per arbitrary # of sales threads). I'm not asking for the number of victims who post their scam andecdotes, but instead what you think the actual number of scam sale posts are among the sea of FS threads, regardless of whether or not they eventually get sold. Are the risks very real, or do you think there's some unnecessary going paranoia around here?
