I look at over half of the "for sale" posts and I can start seeing a pattern of which ones are for sure scams, probable scams, and possibly legit.

I might not ever buy anything again from this forum. I recently got scammed on some Humalog, it wasn't a large amount, but after doing some research I see that there are dozens of examples of people being scammed. The two obvious scams I see posted over and over, 1) person selling Humalog/Lantus/Novolog/Levemir all for $25 per vial and 2) person selling Omni pods/Insulin Pumps/Sof-Sensors/Etc.

It's a great scam to pray on people that are in real life or death need of medicines, who can't generally afford the cost.

I would avoid anyone with a gmail address, as it seems that is the accounts of choice by the scammers, probably easiest accounts to create. And I wouldn't buy anything from people who are selling all different types of products. Only deal through Paypal, even though its not 100% safe, it's by far the best option.

There is almost no point in listing names of scammers, because they just change their name everyday.

I agree. You see the same stupid fake ads over and over for a ridiculous amount of diabetic supplies at too good to be true prices. Then they won't deal through Paypal, and basically want you to email them codes to Moneypaks, which have no means to recover funds.

I personally have stopped buying anything from this site. I would suggest others stay away as we'll.

I see everyone experiences cheated I want to talk about their own experiences. I often through PayPal to buy diabetes supplies on Topix. I have encountered some crooks, they always ask me to use Western Union, but I have always insisted PayPal transaction, so until now, I have not lost my money.I am very glad, because PayPal is very safe for buyers and sellers. Through trading, I think if buyers and sellers is PayPal authenticated users, then the security of transactions will reach 70%. In the transaction process, when the two sides to talk about the good items cost and shipping cost, sellers need to provide electronic bill for buyers. When buyers receive electronic bills carefully check transaction information, and then be ready to pay. If the goods purchased are service projects in the electronic bill. the buyer must be careful, because PayPal does not protect service project. Seller before shipment needs to take photographs of the parcel, the benefits of doing so is to preserve evidence of disputes that may arise. Buyers receipt with the courier staff opened the package checks, check items and transactions described are consistent, check the items and the packaging is damaged, if the buyer is able to do this, I believe that a successful transaction has been generated.
