    Seeing as how CRS (Certified Rank Sellers) have been removed, before you buy a rank from someone else, do your homework.

    1. Check what rank they are. If you're buying Exclusive from someone who's just a citizen or even just VIP, then chances are that they have no intention of buying you your rank. In general, always try to buy ranks who are equal to the rank you're buying or higher. And don't just take their word for it -- ask them to prove what rank they are. Don't make the transaction with them if the refuse to prove it.

    2. Check what date they joined by using /res <name> in the towns world. If they joined a week ago, then chances are that they wouldn't be selling ranks to other players.

    3. Check how much money they have, again with /res. If they have 0.00 meebles or close to that amount, then do not buy the rank from them.

    4. If you are on the fence about a rank seller, then feel free to ask the community in /shout if they are reliable. If you are on the fence about whether or not someone is legit, then walk away from the deal. Better be safe than sorry.

    5. Screenshot everything. Remember, it's better to have too many screenshots than not enough. Make sure to screenshot the both of you agreeing to the deal and you paying him. If you don't have at least those screenshots, then you will not get a refund and the scammer will not be banned. Hopefully, however, if you follow steps 1-4 then the screenies won't be needed.

    If you follow these steps, then you will soon have your rank, and the scammer will be left to sulk in the corner.

    Good guide.
    It's helpful.
    But some people don't go on the forums.

    A great guide to start with! However for step #5, I would just recommend that you use Fraps to video record the whole transaction. Considering a video provides greater evidence than screenshots in a more "continuous" format.

    I personally have considered buying someone Prem ----> exclusive even though I am premium xD but, that aside, I love the points you've made, maybe we can cut down on scams now

    If a staff member is available and you ask politely, I'm sure you can ask one of them to middle man your trade.

    Make a modreq about it or /shout it asking for one of them to hold your money for the trade.They should message the seller that they'll be trading the money after the rank is confirmed to be bought.

    This is probably the easiest way to not get scammed. If the rank isn't purchased then the meebles will be sent back to you.
    The only way to mess this up is to send the meebles to the wrong person.

    no. I for one, hated having CRSes because a) if someone just wants to sell a rank to a friend, but no one else, they have to get certified, which is a pretty annoying process from what i heard , and b) many just dont apply because they dont want everyone spamming them.

    Covers all things about what rank sellers should be right but I do agree with the person up top, some people dont use forums unless they have to, I used to not use them to often.

    But without it, more people can sell ranks, and thus, Meep gets more donations. :D
