It was marked because the site layout was a generic template, similar to MANY of the other scam escrow sites.
Generic template buisinesses are in general to be avoided.
I for one, would never use Escrow for any transaction. I would be all for each of us running background check on each other. I'm very good at verifying if someone is legit, and I do find out more than they know I do, and I WILL show up at their door if they stiff me....
I've done that once, and the end result was pretty funny. Turned out the seller never had the item...so to keep me from getitng them tied up with the FBI for interstate fraud, and various other charges, they offered to bribe me....I was so close to playing the bastard, taking my money back (in cash I may add), and then reporting them...but I decided instead to just get my money back, plus travel expenses.....14 hours of driving round trip is NOT cheap.
