Default How does the scam go?

I have some points up for rent and am questioning the integrity of some of the respondents. How do the scams go on a transfer?

I'm not sure, but I would have thought those points would have been long since gone!

I'm now wondering if I can use them...it's an addiction. I arrive in 9 days. Sorry, I wish I could help. Transfers are tricky. If it was me and I wasn't sure of the person I was transferring them to, I would require paid in full before transfer. And I would double check the name on the deed is the name of the person I was negotiating with.

They are still there. The people contacting me have like one or two posts on their profile. All willing to "transfer" money immediately. Ide rather someone who is an active participant on the boards.

I'm going to pass, as I have everything booked and I'm not sure I could rearrange things. You have me thinking though. It is people who aren't on a lot and only on the RTB that would worry me too.

Agreed. I lurk over there occasionally. But if I'm going to do business, I'd prefer to work with a regular MO member. Just my comfort level.

Transferring imho takes a lot more trust than renting. Once they are transferred there is no turning back, if there are any issues with payment. If you transfer, require payment in full. Talk to your bank manager to see how long till you are 'safe' that a payment cannot be reversed on your account. I would not take a PayPal payment, the person can file a hold with the credit card used.
In the end, go with your gut, if you are not comfortable then just decline. I am sure your points will get rented.

I have 125 HH points I was considering renting but also am leery and would rather a familiar MO rent them. I guess you (and I, if I do rent) could just ignore responders we don't recognize???? Following to see input.
