This is a suggestion to the moderators....

I have just read a post about a buyer who got scammed. I would like to suggest that for members to post in the "i want to sell/buy" forums they should satisfy some minimum criteria

1. be paid up members (which is already in place)
2. post a minimum of 20 posts (for eg.) over the last 6 months prior to the post. this will ensure that only actively contributing members can post, thus avoiding the possibility of someone paying the membership just to set up a scan.
3. A field be added to the user profile where the seller can include the number of successful transactions done on nikonians with a reference(html link or similar) to the actual post... this will be a sort of simple "feedback" system where an authentic seller can develop a curriculum vitae of good transactions.

this should solve the problem. I have been a member for some two odd years now, and I feel that the proportion of "scams" is increasing (of course due to the increasing popularity of Nikonians, which is bound to attract troublemakers)
