Has anyone else been told by Armlist that they need to upgrade their account to a "premium personal account"?

I can no longer look at ads I have saved and can no longer manage the ads I have posted.

I have not gotten an email yet, but on another site a letter from Armslist notes they are changing things up in an effort to deal with scammers and legal costs.

Yep. Heard about it. Gist is... pay $5/mo to be able to contact sellers. Think to sell, ya gotta pay a lot more? The idea is that with credit card/debit card info, this keeps scammers and thieves from using Armslist... although... there are prepaid debit cards with zero verifications (unlike a bank card), so scammers would still be able to scam people :confused:

Do you mean submit a fake payment??
Or sellers who never deliver?

My Colt Python 6" sold and the buyer sent a check,
took forever to clear. But it did. I got the money just
in time... ;)

Either way. Scammers who uses prepaid debit cards to pay for the monthly thing, then scam or steal money from buyers and sellers
