Definitely. Also couldn't get the tip you mentioned, do you mean the item should be placed on the same place/area on each image with the user id paper?I understand that. I'm just saying we shouldn't fall for the "obvious" ones even if we are desperate else it's only going to negatively affect us, that is not worth at all. He could at least have had the user id on paper up. That was a dumb way to scam someone (if it was a scam). If someone doesn't or can't then it's a major red flag though it can be bypassed easily ("if you want to catch a criminal then think like a criminal"). Also another tip, the background/surface on which the item being sold is placed should be the same. I fell for a similar trick a long time ago and have since learned from it.
That's reassuring. Glad no one got duped.It is confirmed with original account holder that his ID is compromised on TE.
