    I second SoyNice, a middleman is one of the best ways to avoid them.

    The number one slot in avoiding scammers is....

    Do not buy digital items from consumers online.

    Not entirely true. When i sell/trade my accounts, I end up bieng super generous and asking for nothing in return. Ask Zacro and BlueIsImba.

    Generous like a baus.

    Yes, I Would Use A Middleman, it's the best way for trade/buy/sell scams.
