            As a seller, you have the option to include the question/answer in the listing. The seller obviously wants everyone to see the transaction.

            Looks like a scam in the making to me.

              I always request a direct reply to my real email address when questioning a seller. I don't use the evilpay mail system because it's one more place to check for mail, and I don't need the hassle. And I wish I were a scam artist... I'd probably be rich
