Beating the Trusted Path Scammer
A Trusted Path Scammer is one that replicates a Trusted Trader's
profile or even that of a well-known trader. From the name to the
picture and linked sites etc., everything resembles the profile
of the real trader.
The scammer will also provide the original Trusted Trader's listing
as proof (They are easily caught by traders who double check the
profile link on the listing site, but a lot of them don't do that).
Having done this the scammer now makes you send your items first and
the rest goes according to the scammer's normal SOP. Once he has
all your loot he goes offline, unfriends you and blocks you from
accessing his profile.
The Scammer Check Bookmarklet beats this type of scammer because it checks the
id of the scammer, even if they've changed their profile link to their
name or nick.
