    Default Bogus Classifieds?



    Is it just my suspicious nature, or do some of the EP's for sale on the other site look bogus?

    The CN site uses a system to rate the users so I check that (and how old is in the site) before I start contacting the seller. Most of my actual stuff I bought from people there and until now I have not had bad experiences.
