We've noticed several members have been scammed lately, both on ebay and Hobby Kings, by sending payment as a gift to someone they don't know. Please be aware that paypal does not offer any protection on payments sent as gifts, and we suggest only sending money as a gift if you are dealing with someone you trust and have dealt with in the past.

Also, a reminder about our trading rules, DO NOT SEND CARDS OR PAYPAL FIRST TO A NEW MEMBER. Several scammers have joined the site and have been banned for talking our members into sending paypal or cards first. If you are trading with a new member, it is up to them to send first. From the rules thread:


9.) Members must send first regardless of transaction [buy/sell/trade] until they reach 5 positive feedback

10.) When a member reaches 5 positive feedback they can trade/buy without sending first but if selling STILL have to send first until they reach 10 positive feedback

11.) Any warranted negative feedback during this time can lead to suspension or ban which will be decided on by the staff

(Site rules thread: http://www.hobbykings.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=31869)

Please help yourself, the staff, and your fellow members by following these rules, not sending paypal as a gift, and reporting any trouble to any mod or post on the Trader Info forum (http://www.hobbykings.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=36)

If you have any questions please ask on the forums or PM a mod before making a transaction.
