Hey guys, I'm a knife collector, a market that has recently seen an upsurge in counterfeit/scammers, and there are a few things we as a community agree on when it comes to discussion forums. Don't take this the wrong way, this is meant for constructive purposes, we need to band together to keep these guys from ruining what we care about.
It is ok to point out a fraudulent auction when you see it, but you should NEVER discuss the triggers in an open forum as to why it appears to be a scam. These scammers are smart enough to search our forums before listing scams and counterfeit items, if we point out what is wrong with them too plainly we are sharpening their skills for them, we forumites are pretty much the experts in the fields we call hobbies, and there is no better place to learn that in these forums. If you see a suspected scam, show the listings, discuss it in general terms, but do not point out what exactly we saw that made it scream "scam" to us. You can PM to each other, if it is a trusted forum member, or if a newbie has a question and you can verify they are in no way associated with the scam, but to plainly list all the things that are wrong with the auction will only cause the p.o.s. who listed it to learn from it and get better at it. Just some food for thought.
