    If not a complete scam it's a blatantly unscrupulous business practice. $200 surcharge to use G&S getting the price to full retail? LOL wut

    No kidding. He is a better man than me. If someone messaged me like that, my reply would have been a four letter word followed by you.

    He's been banned.

    Immediately report anyone suspicious who is requesting payments that offer no buyer protection. Especially new members.

    This policy needs clarification in writing in the BST rules. We had another thread a couple months back where one user openly said he demands Venmo in PMs. The response from Gx was that it is not a violation to demand it in PMs so long as you don't do so in your sale thread. I'll see if I can find the thread (EDIT: https://forums.golfwrx.com/discussion/comment/18991690#Comment_18991690
    ) . This policy is not clearly defined at all and has led to so many issues/disputes.

    It's not a violation because it's not enforceable. We don't monitor what sellers and buyers agree to in a private transaction. However, we're asking that it be reported so we can review the account of the member requesting it.

    In this instance, steve020 was banned because he is a known scammer who is phishing for buyers to pay with services that don't afford buyer protections. He had another account banned that was reported a few days ago by another member.

    Thanks for expounding on this issue. As you can see in the other thread, Gx specifically said not to report people who make these private requests/demands. That was the root of my confusion.
