    as soon as I reported scam got a response via TGT, not email, but only a complaint. checked and I found I had replied to his specific ad 3 times and TGT had 0 responses listed, until scam report complaint. am I being paranoid or just too old for this?

    Things on the internet are not the same as real life. I personally wouldn't respond to any WTB ads. I also stopped reporting anything as it doesn't seem to do much good there, or anywhere for that matter. I buy and sell there when the need arises and have had few issues. If you want to be the internet police you will have a hard time most anywhere you go. Initially being able to read and understand the ads and use some rational thought on the matter will suffice for the first step. If you are wanting for the web site to filter things for you then you won't fair well there. It takes some practice to read and just move on from anything that looks suspicious. It isn't unique to just TGT, it is everything on the internet needs to be personally evaluated before you do anything else. If your skills are low for this kind of thing then you will have issues at most any similar kind of site.
