-Andy- posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionIt pains me to see a resurgence of Chinese scammers on Facebook, WeChat and Instagram, as business must be good. I've been scammed by them, and so have several people I know. The fossils they advertise are incredible to the point where many of us are tempted. Here, take a look at pics taken from the walls of several confirmed-scammers. Looks amazing, doesn't it? Their price are pretty awesome too, so off you go, transferring $1000 USD to their Western Union, and.... nothing. Your money is gone forever. Here are some warning signs of the Chinese scammers. I will say it again: If these Chinese sellers refuse to use Paypal, be on guard. It doesn't matter how many likes and mutual friends they share with you, scammers can make attractive accounts and add a thousand friends just to look trustworthy. Right now, there's a scammer Facebook account that shares over 100 mutual friends with me. Someone posted on his wall complaining of a scam, and the seller removed it within a day. Check the seller's track records. Ask friends and trusted collectors if any of them have ever made successful dealings with the seller. Keichousaurus does not count! I know a case where a friend bought a single cheap Keich from someone on Instagram, and the same seller then went out to scam others with far more expensive fossils after getting the seal of approval from the first guy. Also, take note not all of them admit to being from China. I know a scammer who claims to be from USA. His fossil pictures are similar to other Chinese scammers. When my friend pretended to make a purchase, this seller gave a Chinese address for Western Union, and an Alipay account pointing to a Chinese name too.

Hi all, Though I have this account since quite some time, I just wanted to introduce you to my Instagram account, @world_of_fossils , on which I regularly post fossil-related things (fossil info, fossil hunts, fossils in my collection, fossil-news, etc). I just hit the 400 followers (not that much, but in still quite happy with that), and people seem to enjoy my posts, which always makes me happy. I would really appreciate it if you would follow me on Instagram, so please do! If you do not have an Instagram account yet, I highly recommend you to make one, because: 1) it's 100% free, 2) it's quite easy to use, 3) there's a pretty big and very enthusiastic fossil community! Best regards to all, Max
