    I put these on my "Ignore List" in the Settings section of My Profile. That should handle it. Thank you for your warning of these individuals.

    I've made a VM post with user names on my profile page to remind myself and so others may see it also.

    I've got a word file on my desktop with a list of addresses and names pulled from GBU and the Hall of Shame to be aware of. The addresses help in case the person isn't using their name or registered a new email with a different name listed. I always try to cross-reference this before sending out any of my knives to make sure I'm not sending it to a known scammers address.

    Thanks for the heads up Karda!

    I was scammed on a trade with Chris Taber (CapeCod508) on knife forums. He was using the user name "cyne" and by the time I realized he was the same person it was to late. Just a word of caution in case he isn't banned from knife forums yet.
