They over run the site now

The scammers used to have stuipd low prices,,, like 2500 asking price for a 25,000 piece of equipment, now they are putting some more realistic prices, but still in all, Scams.
I have suggested more than once that LSM could perform simple searches on key words such as 'hotmail, free shipping,worldwide',etc., those key search words will bring up 75% of all scams listed on here.
It would be easy for an administrator to delete them in bulk.
Beings this site has free advertising, it's open target for the scammers, as no one is required to pay for advertising, no required phone contact numbers (which may not help anyway), it is difficult for LSM to monitor the scams.
Apparently the 'flagg as scam' feature only works of 3 or more people flag the ads as a scam. My self, I used to try and flag them, but they stayed up. I now don't bother, as it seems the mods are not overly concerned about it either.
Bottom line, if it sounds to good to be true, it more than likey is.
Avoid most ads with no contact number,ads with a free email account such as hotmail, yahoo, etc.
Whatever you do, don't get caught up in overseas transactions. period.
