    The prices have skyrocketed in the past few months and thus some no good idiots are using the opportunity to scam people in the following ways :*
    1. Advertise low rate and straight up scam*
    2. Sell multiple for low rate, recover and then RESELL
    3. advertise high, show proof of account , fake vouches but ultimately scam
    4. Sell high and recover.*
    Old sellers who have run out of modded accounts use their former rep on unsuspecting buyers for scams. I routinely get users who have been scammed multiple times before they bought.*
    Ways to verify accounts:*
    1. Social club proof = Sync social club user and stats with the possession of the psn account. In the linked accounts section you can verify the gamertag, always ask for fresh screenshots to confirm modder access.
    2. In game proof*
    3. Check old seller rep and NEW rep
    3rd is the most reliable but REMEMBER : YOU COULD BE THE FIRST VICTIM OF A SCAM AND THERE IS NO GUARANTEE YOU LL GET AN ACCOUNT. So it is best you stick to trusted names!*

    Thanks for the heads up, i'm sure it'll really help people out but as Frosty said GTA V Services and service requests aren't allowed here on NGU, hence why there hasn't been a GTA V Services section in months.
