I have noticed scamlike behaviour on 99% of the sales-sites on the darkweb... Avoid scams by using the following commens-sense techniques:
- if a deal looks to good to be true, it probably is
- research a seller, look for reviews (avoid sellers that only get reviews by guest or new accounts on forums)
- make sure you contact the seller before purchasing... Ask for a picture of the product with a piece of handwritten paper stating the current date, and the onion address of the sales website
- make sure you always use an impartial escrow.
Since a lot of times, a seller doesn't want to use an escrow, or (even worse) insists on using "his" scrow-guy (which is probably the seller himself), i started this impartial, private, escrow service... In case you don't trust your seller, you can always ask him/her to use my service instead.
